    Daphne Blue first shows up on the July 1989 price list; Fender put out 3 price lists in 1988 (January, April and October) but Daphne Blue is not on the list. So who knows when between October 1988 and July 1989 they might actually show up, so it's okay for the era. As always with AVRIs you have to remove the neck and check the neck and body dates to find out the year of manufacture.

    The paint transfer in the neck pocket looks good. I don’t see any red flags
