    Im rifinishing a 79 strat I know it was originally "red" probally not matalic. How many different reds did they offer in 79?

  2. I know 3 red colors from that era, Candy Apple Red, Fiesta Red, and Dakota Red. Candy Apple seems to be the lightest, Fiesta a little darker, and Dakota a dark, scarlet kind of color. I can't confirm if they were available in 79, but I know they were used Pre-CBS and probably late 60s and 70s.
