    That LPB over Fiesta Red J is Herbie Flowers' IIRC, and it's my favorite bass of all time. Thanks for the link!

    I wonder what constitutes a rare color? Under 5000?under 500?under100? I know in car circle 5000 is your magic number, I once owned a sage green strat and have only seen one I other, that was on the TV, not sure if it is rare but on eBay I saw a sage green jazz bass I guessing you mean standard production colors not rare one offs or custom builds so while not my favorite color I say Sage green is a rare color

    Any of the International Series colors. I have a CIJ reissue P in Capri orange that will never leave me. Easily the greatest color Fender will possibly never mass produce again.

    I like Sherwood Green quite a bit myself. But I've seen fairly significant differences in the appearance of Sherwood Green instruments from Fender as well as some other companies that offer that finish.

    I thought so too. . . subbed in a band where the guitar player had a sienna strat. I guess seeing it up close for a good amount of time I just didn't dig it as much as I thought.

    I have 2 Sunset Orange P's. Somewhat rare, I don't think it's vintage. I love 'em but I'll probably hit the boring road on any new basses w/ a 3 color burst or natty . . .

    Desert Sunset, as in the color of the Bonnie Raitt Strat. I can't remember where I was flying on a business trip about the time they came out or shortly thereafter, but the flight happened to be on a clear day and was over a bank of fair weather cumulus clouds. The pattern of the clouds meeting the clear blue sky, which faded to black above me, was exactly the colors and textures of the Bonnie Raitt Strat from pearl pickguard to the edge of the body. I'm not really a Strat guy, but I gotta get me one of them one of these days.

    Am I boring for loving the whitest white you can get? I also love my black P-Bass with the reverse head tuned BEAD. I had it re-sprayed in BMW black because the Fender black didn't go deep enough for me.
