    I think the Daphne blue looks better with the maple neck

    I couldn't choose between them. I have a Daphne Strat however, but Sonic would have been fine, but they didn't make the HW1 in Sonic.

    Yeah same. Sonic blue is nice, but daphne has more depth and tone to it... not as dull. And BRoss I see you're from Arlington Heights! Northbrook here.

    I may be biased, but I say Daphne. But I would like a Sonic.

    Sonic Blue for me too! Squier Vintage Modified Surf Stratocaster - changed the knobs and switch tip to chrome. Plays like butter, action is 3/64" at 12th fret on all strings and has no fret buzz anywhere. She takes a light touch but that's my style when I play this one...

    "Sonic Daphne" really needs to be the name of someone's band now.

    Love them both, but love Daphne a little more. Was researching paint for a project and on the Re-Ranch guitar refinishing site, he indicates Daphne was a former DuPont color used (only) on '58 Cadillacs. He indicates that Sonic Blue is especially relevant to the Fender Mustang.
