Although Fender seemed to favor General Motors colors for their guitars here is a color for the Ford guys. Fiesta Red found its way to the public eye on the '56 Thunderbird and was discontinued the next year. It was used by Fender from '60 to '69. The color is lighter and more orange than the truer red of Dakota Red.
While very white the color has a slight blue component in the mix. It can be clear coated to give an aged yellow appearance although it is believed that Fender did not clear coat the color because of this very reason. Without lacquer is white looking, but with lacqer can be come very yellow.
The color, if not a brother, is a close cousin of Sonic Blue. Most of you older guys will remember it from the '56 Chevy. The younger guys will remember it from... well, their Dads' '56 Chevy. As evidenced by the prices (that is, if you can find one), there are not a lot of Surf Green any things out there.
