my main bass, the musicman bongo hs
basswood body, maple neck, rosewood fretboard, 24 frets with 18volts active electronics.
purchased in 07', at like a week before holloween.
(this bass was sold to a good friend of mine steven in 2009, after i purchased another bongo, the 5 string hh with bfr 1 piece rosewood neck)
big fat modern chunky tone(because of the active electronics), weights 8lbs, great slim neck. it's just a addictive instrument.
i was first cinsidering the stingray5 hh and the 30th anniversary stingray 4, but in terms of the playability, the weight, which is a big issue, and the pricing. this bongo beats the others. what i needed was something that's easy to play and sounds good, stingray5 was good, but to me the pickup switch system was too much to learn. the 30th anniv ray4 was a cool looking and sounding instrument. the thought came across in mind was that i'll probably get these signatured sounding bass by the day i need such sound, just like the j bass. the bongo cost less too, and it's gold.
