    Here is two different colors, one is a Fender color called Feista Red that is about $24 for one spray can. The other is. $6 can from Home Depot. The $6 can is enough for at least 2 bodies, the $25 can barely covers one.
    Can you tell me which color is the fender color?

    I think it’s the one on the left, but I’m (almost) always open to a learning experience.

    I can't tell which is which. What kind of paint is the home depot paint for future reference?

    They look the same to me. I don’t think I would ever spend $25 on a can of spray paint. Thanks for the comparison!

    I can't tell any difference. I'd think you really would have to know your Fender colors and even then the changes in hue due to lighting, camera, etc. My iPhone 8 plus has a lot of difficulty capturing my blonde or arctic whites accurately.

    The Strat on left has the $25 paint. Poppy Red is the other home Depot color

    Fiesta Red never looks red to me. It always looks almost red. Like someone accidentally made pink or coral or even salmon, then tried to get it to red and eventually gave up when they were "close enough" The one on the right looks like a proper red to me. Not much difference, but it's there.

    No such thing as fender fiesta red, it's a Ford car paint colour..antway the correct one is what looks good/right to you..paint it and play it..

    Correct. Fiesta red varies from more orange to more salmon to just about every hue of red.....
