    Nope, love red Strats and most every other color as well. Maybe it's just that I love Strats in general.

    Never fancied solid colored strats minus black or white. I really like finishes that show the grain of the wood, like natural and the burst finishes.

    It sorta shows how even though many strats look the same, none are ever 100% identical.

    I like fiesta and reds like that, but for some reason I do t care much for the metallic ones like candy apple. Don't hate them though, just prefer the flat reds

    As long as it is Candy Apple Red I like it, other shades of red, not so much. ENJOY!!! IMG_20130924_134024.jpg

    Opinions on the hue or color of the axe of choice
    Influence not the instruments worth or voice.
    The Stratocaster and Telecaster are are the top of the heap
    But in black, looks extremely cheap.
    It matters not if vintage or new
    If the color is red, you can take it back too.
    I was always told Red and black have class,
    But to me, I think Ill just pass.

    Pete Townshend would batter you with a Torino red strat if he ever got close to you.

    I'm currently trolling for parts to make my own Gilmour Red. I did get the Black built though, so progress is being made.
