    Was reading about the CS Pino Palladino P bass. In the description, they say it is Fiesta Red over Desert Sand. Whats up with that? How would that look any different than Fiesta Red over black or white? If the Fiesta is a solid color, why does whats underneath matter at all?

    When it wears off it will look slightly different, and I bet the base coat makes the fiesta look less salmony. Not that I've ever played one long enough or in comparison to anything to make a real useful judgement.

    The reasaon there's a color over another color is to be faithful to Pino's original bass that was sparayed Fiesta Red over Desert Sand. Fiesta Red was hugely popular in the '60s in the UK, and if they were rushed to fill orders, Fender would respray whatever was already around, rather than waiting on new bodies to be made.
