2019 Squier Classic Vibe Stratocaster acquired
The four colors offered are Vintage Blonde, Sunburst, Fiesta Red and Black.
Originally, I was going to get the Blonde, but then upon seeing various photos of it... no. I was hoping it would have more yellow in it but it doesn't.
Sunburst on a Strat to me looks best with a dark wood fretboard, and the '50s has the all-maple neck. Squier does in fact make a dark fretboard sunburst as a '60s CV model, but it doesn't have that cool circle string tree on the headstock.
Fiesta Red is a gamble I wasn't willing to take because I was buying the guitar sight-unseen. This color, depending on how it's mixed, can either lean towards being pink-ish, purple-ish or orange-ish. If you do a Google Image Search for "stratocaster fiesta red", you will see exactly what I'm talking about. Lots of variations. Had to skip this option.
And this leaves black, which is what I went with.
You'll notice at the time I write this in December 2019, nobody else has this guitar. Not yet, anyway. This is because I preordered it from Guitar Center back in late November.
Again, at the time I write this, this guitar can't be bought from Guitar Center until January 2020. If you plan on buying this, that might be a good thing because by that time you'll be able to see the other colors in person.
I wasn't willing to wait. I wanted it now. 🙂
I'll do that for my next article. Watch for it.
