....in Fiesta Red with a rosewood fretboard for a reasonable price. Not a Custom Shop model. An MIM Standard or Classic 60s Series would be awesome. You can get a 50s Fiesta Red with a maple neck....why not a 60s with a rosewood neck?

Sometimes dealers order special runs of non-standard colors. I did a quick search, and found this one (MIJ Classic 60's) from Andertons in the UK. It says they're no longer available, but you might contact them. That particular combo would be more popular in Britain, of course, because of the Hank Marvin association.

A few years ago, I got a Classic 50's in non-standard Dakota Red from Dave's Guitar in Wisconsin.

MIJ Fiesta Red 60's

Fiesta Red/rosewood might just be my favorite Fender color scheme.

This is a case where the fact the Fender guitars are put together like erector sets out of interchangeable parts can really help you. Exchanging necks, bodies and pickups is really not difficult if you're at all handy, and when you sell off any excess pieces, you may well come out ahead financially.
