fender 2 tone sunburst finish

anybody know the name/brand of the inner (brown) color on fender two-tone sunbursts? i've been looking at stewmac and it looks like maybe the vintage amber/medium brown colortone brand liquid stain mixture might work, but i rmember reading somewhere that fender dyed their aldar bodies yellow, sealed, and then sprayed red to create the brown color. any ideas? also, i'm using swamp ash, whihc is a little lighter in color than aldar.

the vintage amber/medium brown stain would probably work good. you dont have to do exactly the same thing as fender when you could get the same results in an easier way
