    So I was slumming on a Telecaster bass thread a while back and this guy John posted a photo of his Sonic Blue parts bass and I said something like, "Can I have that when you're done with it?" Be careful what you wish for.

    Sweet! I'm in line behind @BlacknWhite.
    As an aside, I love how Reverend Guitars refers to their version of this finish as "Chronic Blue."

    I JUST bought a brand new Baja Series Tele (guitar not bass) for noodling and fleshing out song ideas...same color, same neck wood and all. She'd sure pair well with that beauty. Send her my way when you're finished! Great pickup OP. Congrats

    It was good with the strings you had on it, but I changed them the other day - had at the truss rod a bit, too, and lowered the action a tad. My goodness, it's even more Pbassy with the Cobalt Flats. It really put this bass over the top.
