    These are all from here Fender here: Instrument Finish Color Chart
    Please choose just one, even though it says colors in the poll...

    EDIT: If yours is one of the "other reds" post a pic if you can, or if its just any red, why not! :bassist:

    Not really looking at deep ones, but if you like maroons, burgundys, or whatever other red, choose one of those options and specify. I know there are no pics of them on an actual instrument but we all pretty much have seen these, or can be easily looked up.

    Although i assume you have a favorite already!

    That is awesome. People should post a pic if they have one, of their instrument in their color!

    BTW is that pic from when you first bought it? I assume you removed the flag?
    EDIT: Just saw the tuners as well! :D

    I voted for candy apple red. Of course even it has variations, depending on whether it is shot over a silver or a gold base coat. But if it's done right, it's a gorgeous color either way.

    I voted Dakota, which is my favorite Fender red, but I was thinking: did they ever make basses in Dakota Red, other than a custom order (or Custom Shop offering)? I'm not sure if I've ever seen one.
