I recall seeing a couple of Light Blue (sonic/daphne) that were regular "American Series" basses. Probably uncommon, but not unheard of.
It's a classic color. I had a '97 Jazz V in that color. I think it was a standard color that year, as someone brought a '97 Sonic Blue P bass to a GTG I hosted a few year ago. It is a very seldom used color.
It was a stock color in the late 90's. It was called "Sky Blue" at the time.
Sky Blue != Sonic Blue. Sonic Blue is a classic color from the 60s, like Seafoam Green.
Here's a picture from our 2005 GTG. My bass was the Jazz V - both were "American Standard" - I think this was a stock color for 1997 only.
So they switched from Sky Blue to Sonic for one year only? That is odd.
Either way it's not a custom color. Fender only does customs on custom shop stuff and even that can be pricey.
This is my '03 P in Sonic (or Sky or whatever) Blue:
I have one that is a 2001/2002 model. It is #51 Sky Blue.
Mine is a really nice one, great tone and feel.
Here is the thread:
Pull your pickguard and I bet it will be a bit darker (mine is).
That looks like sky blue, not sonic blue, to me. Both colors are tough to tell in pictures.
