    I'm sure you will choose what your heart desires, and your taste. You do not care about voting, and as a saying goes, the wrong choice will show you the right one!

    The red one would have had a much faster neck, but ....................

    That actually makes sense, Olympic White is a GM Truck color, and as you know, many popular guitar colors are copied off of car paint jobs.

    Congrats

    IMHO the Fiesta Red will age better giving you a more interesting guitar years down the road.
    Granted, this is just my $.02 Cents.
    Ultimately you really can't go wrong either way.

    It really depends on what kind of music you're playing. Music style decides your color man. Clearly the red will work better with certain kinds of music and the white and gold pick guard works for other kinds of music.

    So the real question is what does the color say about the music you're playing?

    Fiesta red and white pickguard seems more classic to me. I much favor a rosewood to maple fretboard. I just bought an Am Prof ii in Miami Blue with white pickguard and rosewood board and it looks great - very rock and roll.

    Not one of the choices, but I have a transparent Sapphire Blue Deluxe which I think is beautiful.

    Fiesta red ....no better colour although I'd go with a rosewood fingerboard, and mint pickguard with offwhite pickup covers...( or a brown tort pickguard)...( also big CBS headstock!).....

    If the gold pickguard matches gold painted fingernails, then go with the gold, if not , fiesta and white will be the right choice.
