Chris Squire's bass I believe started out as a Fireglo. Chris had it
refinished by some luthier in the UK. Therefore I don't believe you'll be getting any paint codes from the factory.

Found an older RIC brochure from 1991 stating that the 4001CS was finished in a custom cream lacquer. Maybe try to find a similar cream color.

It looks close to Fender's "vintage white," which actually has some yellow in it.
