'65 ri all the way.
I owned a '73 ri about year back which i think is a identical to the '69 ri apart from the finish.
The '65 i played just felt like a better guitar. Better neck, better pups, bonartown tuners and i loved the slab body.

Slab body is the only way to go with these.

Yeah but they mess the colours around, Fender now calls this Sonic Blue:



and this Daphne:



They keep mixing them up, fuck knows why. I prefer the colour of the 69 Mustang personally.

Understood. Then Amy's '65 was Daphne and not Sonic.

Still looks pretty close to me.

Timhulio owns a vintage daphne stang that looks greenish.

A yellow tinted clearcoat would get similar results, right?

i'm sure i posted a size 29 FFFFFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUU- style thread the day it happened. it'd started off at 800 or something and didn't sell, so the guy dropped the price.
