    CF4B075B-4FE1-4313-8AAF-2B2B954C691A.jpeg Fiesta Red is the way to go despite some of hateful red remarks posted above. The white is nice too but will go out of fashion.

    Mark Knopflers fiesta res is a classic look forever.

    Here is my 1962 strat that somebody painted metallic blue before Protocaster guitars brought it back to faded fiesta red relic.

    Fiesta Red! Polar white looks like an unpainted model to me. BTW, I feel the same about white cars.
    The Red is bold.

I have both colour bodies but I feel the rosewood board is more classy on a fiesta red. The maple board on white body looks anaemic to me even though my 2007 AVRI is white+maple.

    If it's a rosewood neck, then fiesta red. Maple neck, white.

    What if I don't like either of them? Would definitely take white over red, but not a fan of the gold pickguard. The red one would look better with a black pickguard.

    I'm very biased. I hae a thing for Red. Cars. Pretty girls in a red dress, and Red guitars. I only like the Jimi Hendrix white with the Ebony fretboard and turtle shell pickgaurd. Yes, I know that is not what its called but I can't remember. So Red it is and I take rw over yhe maple too.

    Well assuming it was your choice for the color of pickguards , then you don’t want to take advice from the “crowd “... to each his own , and what I mean is I’d never have the gold pick guard especially on white . But that’s me . To others it may be the most beautiful set of matching colors ever , or maybe some like me and don’t like it but will suggest it because they’re being cheeky and want you to make a “bad choice” in their opinion ... on the other hand there’s something about that classic red setup that’s timeless ...lol maybe that’s just my thing , nothing flashy and stick with the classics .. good luck on your choice

    I just ordered the red from 3M in vinyl. 24 by 60 inch sheet for 35 dollars. Let ya know, but the ones I've seen are stunning. You can have it both ways...maybe.

    I vote for Red.
    I like mostly the way it shines and reflects the light.
    Red!

    Tough choice. White by a nose. Just built one with this color scheme and I can't stop staring at it!

    The white one looks classic and timeless but you should choose the one that speaks to you and by all means play both pick the one that feels good to you.
