It's a different color because it's a different neck lacquer. It's refereed to as a "Vintage Tint" finish.

As for feedback, I've never actually played one myself but I've never heard anything terrible about them either.

I have never played one. I can tell you one thing, fender makes very solid guitars.

are you in the uk?

they're pretty nice guitars, but the price has shot up recently. get an MIJ tokai instead. You can pick up NOS gs100s for just over £300. or the exact strat-style ones for around the £500 mark.
I'm an idiot and I accidentally clicked the "Remove all subscriptions" button. If it seems like I'm ignoring you, I'm not, I'm just no longer subscribed to the thread. If you quote me or do the @user thing at me, hopefully it'll notify me through my notifications and I'll get back to you.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

it's possibly just the picture, or maybe they have a darker laquer on the daphne blue version.

i just got my '50s reissue strat in fiesta red today. if you want a '50s style strat for a reasonable price you can't really go wrong imo. but it's probably worth checking out the '60s and '70s reissues too if you haven't already - same quality, but they have certain substancial differences.

the only negative thing about mine, which obviously isn't gonna be a problem they'll all have, is that the strings are sticking in the nut slots causing tuning problems with trem use.. this should be able to be fixed with a little graphite in the nut slots - this is a common problem with new guitars that's easily fixed.

I believe all maple necks start to look light that in time... I don't know why only that one has the color.

Also, seeing that Fiesta red one made me want one.
