The comp mustangs have always been known as comp red, comp blue & comp orange, but still the red & blue are the same candy apple red & lake placid blue & in most cases minus the undercoat, there is still some mystery as to where the orange came from, but you have to look at the cars of the day, in particular the 69 Ford Mustang , cars are where all of the paint ideas came from, slight variations from Dupont & Ditzler, plus all of the other suppliers that Fender used. Sonic Blue was a totally different colour & as you say a lot of people get them mixed up.
Of course and we are only talking about the mustang! Whether they actually used different colors IDK for sure but they were only ever called red,white and blue, thats evident.
Its a entirely different blue, mislabelled as"competion burgundy" sure, because burgundy is a redishXpurplish color as we all know.
However, NO competition mustang was ever LPB!
Once I find the pics of new competition blue mustangs from the late 60's/early 70's I can prove it to you, it was never LPB,it was always darker than LPB from the day it was painted. And even in that color chart I posted candy apple red is slightly different to competion red, how do you explain that if they are the same color? Why have two same colors call them differnt names and show a different color sample for it?
The Fender Japan colors have never been vintage correct,just like the pickguards and electronics and tremolo and dots and bindings etc etc etc,they aren't supposed to be vintage correct. There's not really too much from fender japan that is vintage correct! The mustangs come close instyle but colors,not really, electronics,nope,neck dots,nope, vibrato,yes, pickguards, nope.
And with jaguars and jazzmaster its even worse. You cant fit an AVRI PG on a CIJ jaguar without filing it and redrilling every single hole for it. the only things that line up are the bridge thimbles,pickup location and neck pocket,other than that the PG is a different shape in a few places. The elctronics are all wrongs,the body is slightly wrong the decal is worng,the neck is wrong. Fender Japan cant get anything vintage correct. They are #### great guitars though regardless(except for stock jaguars and jazzmasters)
Anyways, we aren't gonna see eye to eye on this so lets just forget it!
Anyways, this is what is Burgundy actually is:
