harrison said: you could go to guitar center and look at the 65 ri mustang in daphne, and there has to be a sonic strat or something like that lying around and compare them
I think I'll do that.
BTW, here's a pix I found on yet another site, that shows how the aging clear coat on a blue mustang turned it green:
I wouldn't think that the control plate would prevent the paint from aging but what do I know? This same site say's that a Sonic Blue Mustang is really a faded Daphne Blue, but I don't think I buy that since we know Fender used both.
I also can't believe how may times I forgot how to spell Daphne, and had to look it up, and this morning I noticed a note my wife has on a sticky at the bottom of my monitor with the phone number and e-mail address of someone she knows on it... her name is Daphne, in big letters 🙄😆😠
