Fiesta Finishes Shop Notes, week of May 10, 2010

Pictured above are three jobs in the shop this week. A Dakota Red '62 Precision Bass (restoring original custom color), a 1959 Telecaster, and a '71 Precision Bass. The '62 P-Bass and the Tele will be for sale next week, while the '71 P-Bass belongs to a customer.


This is customer Geoffrey's beautiful figured Ash Stratocaster body. Geoffrey had a vision for a 3-color tobacco burst. So we took our "Faded 1959 Stratocaster" look and took almost all of the red out of the burst. These colors, along with the great wood make a striking combination. The body is also very light, well under 4 lbs. with finish. It's great to help a customer realize his/her vision.

  1. This example is a one-of-a-kind if you really
    think about it and then look at this Strat
    body and see a beautiful piece of art in the
    hands of someone like Paul. He seems to view
    each task as an opportunity to create and to
    make what other builders try and fail at. Paul
    captures your eyes and makes his work speak to you.
