    Default Fiesta Red

    Fiesta Red was the experimental color George Fullerton used first in coming up with the Custom Color line around 1956/1957. It was a Du Pont paint first used on the Ford T-bird. The sales folks laughed at it, believing no one would want a guitar that color.

    It's Fiesta Pink!
    Some contend that rock 'n roll is bad for the body & bad for the soul
    Bad for the heart, bad for the mind, bad for the deaf & bad for the blind.
    It makes some men crazy and they talk like fools.
    Makes some men crazy and they start to drool.
