    Don't you agree I need another blue bass? Duh. But Daphne or Sonic? The suspense is killing me. What says TB?
    Of course it would have a darker grade tort guard. Which blue? Come at me.

    Which Sonic Blue, the one Fender should've named Barely Blue?

    I voted for Sonic Blue but only if it's Fenders version. I agree that it's barely blue but that's what I like about it. I really love it on the American Vintage RI P-Basses.

    Exactly, @jd56hawk !! You're probably feeling my soul-churning dilemma. Even on the Nash color page (great builder) the Daphne is really a "Carolina" blue. It's like the wild west out there. I'm narrowed to 2 builders for a custom and this is the hardest part by far. It's maddening.

  6. I believe the correct TB answer is one of each. ;)

  8. Sometimes Fender's colors are a moving target.

    Zackly! Nash Sonic is closer to Fender's Daphne. Do I really have to pull out a Pantone chip?

    Roxy Blue would've just been called Van Halen Blue. :cool:

  14. Mint or tort is the bigger question

    For me, that depends on the blue. Sonic gets the mint and Daphne would get tort.

    I always liked Velma. She's clever and she's right there rockin' a carrot colored sweater. Is that a tort skirt?

    @Killing Floor, Are Velma’s glasses Sonic Blue, or Daphne Blue?
