    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.
     
  4. 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.

  7. 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.

    That looks like sky blue, not sonic blue, to me. Both colors are tough to tell in pictures.
