Artists, painters, woodworker question

Why for instance are "red" sunburst nitro finish Les Pauls way more sensitive to fading than a "reddish tangerine" sunburst? They are honestly almost the same.

And what makes green sunburst and violet/purple sunburst finishes way more sensitive than the red, orange, and brown sunburst finishes?

Is there some color theory here? (ps- never took that art class in school)

Re: Artists, painters, woodworker question

Thanks on that one.

That makes sense with a blended color like purple fading with some values faster than others ruining original brilliance.

If a sunburst Les Paul like my 1980 faded evenly I would accept it. I hate that light made it so that edges faded much faster eventually making it no longer sunburst. Those are called "unbursts" which all will become over next 100 years.

This still won't affect sound or playability but stunning nitro sunburst will be gone.
