Mint. As long as the pickup covers are not yellow.

tort for me!! I think the lack of contrast looks excellent. Two really great options though.

As much as I love spitfire tort, I would go with mint on your case or will anything in the red , red-orange spectrum. I think mint looks just graceful with that faded fiesta red.

Tort! It reminds me of all the jazzmasters that for some reason have been painted fiesta red over their sunburst in Europe.

Another good color on faded Fiesta Red is anodized gold. The Fiesta Red P-bass and Telecaster models sometimes sport gold and it is a killer look.

I'd say mint, but the perfect shade of tort might work as well.

Tort would probably win in a poll. Personally though, I like white pearloid.

I'm voting for tort. Only real or spitfire tort though. Historically it can be both btw.
A lot of sunburst Fenders that ended up in Europe had problems with paint in their transit to Europe and got repainted in Fiesta red.
