I believe that's "Tobacco Burst" (Or Tobacco Sunburst)...
although for the colors listed they have:
(831) Aged Cherry Sunburst,
(838) Crimson Red Transparent,
(852) Tobacco Sunburst
it might be Aged Cherry Sunburst if not Tobacco
I have always heard it called "tobacco burst." The distinction being that it fades from a chocolate (tobacco spit) brown instead of a black/brown like the traditional sunburst.
I am not sure if Fender coined the phrase or if they still use it.
That's the quilt-top version of the FMT Jazz PD. They also have a flamed top option. I've never been able to put my hands on one of those as of yet. The stores in my area just don't stock them.
EDIT: Looks like a few others had the goods before me.
I know it is quilt, but the jury is still out on whether it is Tobacco or Aged Cherry. I am probably going to order this bass, but a 4 stringer.
Sunburst. Tobaccoburst. I love them all.
The only one that I don't like is when the pipesburst!
Bear in mind you won't really have an idea of the figuring until you see it. Check out both pages of Munji's thread: fmt
It's the tobacco sunburst over quilt. The aged cherry is more red. Mine and Brads are just plain amber.
