    I wouldn't rely on how the colors render on all of our different monitors to decide for you. What we all see isn't as accurate as you seeing the colors in person under natural light.

    If I wanted an actual Fender color, I wouldn't decide by price. I'd get however many cans of actual Fender color were needed to paint the body.

    I have a Fiesta Red Bullet Strat. To me the color sceams 60s for whatever reason. And yeah, it always strikes me as the color of a Bloody Mary.

    Not saying it is, but it could be the same paint targeted at different markets. Happens all the time with retail color marketing. Add a slightly more expensive Red 122 and charge an extra ten bucks.

    The "custom" color Fenders were painted with actual automotive paint back in the day so, as mentioned earlier, "factory Fender" is kind of a misnomer

    Although both the guitar and car look more red than Fiesta in this pic- Fiesta red more of a tomato soup shade than tomato

    I always wanted and Evening Orchid Telecaster. I don't think they ever made one.
