    Honorable mention: the non-reissue Fender Mustang, Daphne Blue, that I inherited from my aunt when she died. Sounds awesome with dead flats on it. The only bass I'll never sell.

    If your Mustang has the original finish it's Sonic Blue. I have the same bass although it's not Sonic Blue anymore.

        I think you're right - Sonic is darker than Daphne, no?

                The clear coat gets darker but Sonic is lighter than Daphne. Fender discontinued Daphne in 1965 and Mustang Basses came out in '66. What year is yours? Mine was modified by myself and a buddy who worked for RIC. At one time it got a Tele bass HB, compact Schallers and was cocoa brown. Then it got a natural finish and Fender machines. Lastly it got a standard Fender bridge, Dimarzio P pickup, brass nut and all new pots/wiring.

                Daphne Blue

                Sonic Blue

                  The top 3 are easy.

                  For#1 - it's a draw between the G&L L2500 MIA and Rumblefish 5XL.

                  For#3 - Ibanez Blazer P.

                  Sorry, no pics today. My camera was ejected from a go cart and doesn't want to work anymore.:cry:

                    1st...........1949 King upright that I used to play and borrow at will from the King Musical Instruments factory where I worked in the late 1970's. They stopped making them in the 1950's but there were still a few around in the factory. The wood had aged and the jazz tone was unbelieveably good.

                    2nd..........Aria TAB 66 that I purchased a month ago. Really nice tone.

                    3rd..........1973 Fender P Fretless with Rotosound 77 jazz flats


                    Dennis Hopper's retirement plan, except Dennis is dead
                    Retired and likin' it a lot!

                      I actually have four top basses, but only because two are four-string and two are five...


                      four top


                      The SR5 Dargie I is the only one I bought, the rest I built in my garage.
