    When was Sky Blue available?

    Hey guys
    I suck at the search function, so I'll ask instead: Does anyone know (or want to guess) which years the color Sky Blue was available on the Bongo?
    bovinehost: Yes, I do agree with that, but if there's nothing wrong then there's nothing wrong.
    Beth: I would compare Bongo to Tommy Lee Jones. Bad a$$ and just hot in a weird way...
    cheezewiz: They should take their lace thongs off and play bass.

    Anyone else?

    You have me doing some Googling. I’m finding Sky Blue posts from 2011 ?!?
    So I’m guessing there is a first introduction date and it’s been revived since ?

    But at the same time I want to say it was one of the first/original Bongo colours from 2003

    I have always loved light blue basses, and since my frist Bongos were Orange, dark green and Dargie green i tnink your 2011 guess is better, as per this post:

    It definitely wasn't available in 2003.

    I can't specifically comment on the Bongo but "Sky Blue" was announced as a new colour in Jan 2011 and was discontinued (for some instruments) for orders after 31 Oct 2015.

    Light Blue is one of my favourite colours for a bass hence refinishing StingRay in Daphne Blue, all time favourite.
    Sky Blue wasn’t an option though lol

    Didn’t think it was. There were definitely some bold and interesting colours at that time though, I still want a Desert Gold Bongo.
    Am I right in saying that there were three types of gold finish in the first year ? Desert, Medallion and there was a shade between the two ? But that could be different years as well though. Not sure

    There was Desert Gold, which is bright orange (and my first Bongo). Can't remember if there was an actual golden paint job at the beginning though.

    It was very similar to Desert Gold just a bit lighter, can’t remember its name
