Yeah, the color of the DY feels a bit off in real life as well. A greenish tint to the yellow color. Only slight, but noticable.
Its definitly yellow though.
You are absolutely right Phantomblot.
I just got my DY and indeed my version is just as you describe it and does match some of the latest pictures I have been seeing online as of late, yet slightly different to some other pictures I have seen earlier in the year.
I was a bit puzzle and was wondering because I have one of the RG1 XXV Pink ones, but the version I got although Pink, it does have a slight subtle hint of orange to it (When playing at night it looks more orange than pink). I certainly love the neon color of it and am very happy with the guitar, but can clearly see the subtle difference in color to that of the promotional material and other people pictures online in which I based my online purchase, since prior to receiving the guitar, I had never seen one in real life.
I was wondering if anyone more familiar would know if subtle disparity in colors do happen often on guitars coming straight from the factory as new ? perhaps because some of them were done on different batches and it is a bit tricky to get specially the neon colors to look consistent with the original target.
I found this image of Neon Lemon Yellow, that is as close to the color of the DY I got. I love my DY and Am super happy with it, but after finally seeing this guitar in real life, I realize that for a bit more than 2 decades I had the wrong idea about what the exact color of this guitar was from seeing it on guitar magazines in the early 90's as a kid dreaming of having one hahaha. and more recently seeing them online, but never in real life.
