    G&L do Daphne blue as well, now that I think of it. Still, I like Himalayan blue better.

        I've noticed this as well, they tend to like my daphne strat and surf green bass the most.

        I don't care what women or men, for that matter, think about my guitar. If I like it and it fits me and my hands, sounds good, plays nicely and stays in tune, that's a beautiful guitar and one I'll be keeping. I prefer my guitars to look a bit more like a "manly" guitar over a pretty "girly" guitar.oke:

            I refinished my Strat in Daphne blue. It turned out beautifully and you're right, the women love the color.

            Almost three years later, I want to refinish it again, this time in Black. My wife and two daughters wont let me. Seriously, they wont.


            Same.
            My wife has told me that I can NEVER sell my trans red AS73. She says it's because it's a cool guitar, but I know it's just because it's her favorite color.

                  When I had a Daphne Blue Mustang, a girl looked at the guitar and was like, oh that's pretty. She was indifferent to the Candy Apple Red Jaguar.

                  When I got a Daphne Blue Squier Deluxe Strat, some other girl looked at the guitar and was like, oh that's pretty. She's never commented on any other guitar other than the Hello Kitty one.

                      I can somewhat understand the appeal of the blue, but I can't get behind the cutoff pickguard or the Gretsch-like pickup. Fortunately, for all parties involved, I'm not a "chick" ...

                        True dat!

                        I have a '50s Classic Strat Daphne Blue and it is definitely a top favorite of my wife's
                        A '57 Classic, MIJ from USA parts.

                        Well Dick, it's got a good beat, and I could dance to it, so I give it a 10!
                        I have opinions of my own,strong opinions but I don't always agree with them.

                          Show them the sparkly ones. Plus didn't you once have a story about how you were buying a Hello Kitty Strat and it attracted some women?

                            Just be careful with that Doc....I am feeling kind of weird in my pants looking at it. :lol:

                            I love that guitar and have been on the fence on converting one of my others to something similar. I've got a US Masters Sportster skinny that a set of english mount TV Jones' would be quite awesome in.
