    I'm considering selling my Bongo 5 HS PDN. Comes with the roasted maple neck and pau ferro fretboard. I don't play it at all, and when I do require a fretted bass I'm gravitating towards my Clement anyways. I figure someone else here can tame the beast that is the Bongo and make it work for them right?

    Pictures will be posted later, however the bass is pretty much mint. Never gigged, comes with OHSC.

    Starting off at 1600$ and open to trades.

    Edit: here is the picture from BassCentral, who I bought it from.

    I'd guess 8.5 maybe 9 at most. It's not heavier than my 6 strings which come in around 8.5.

    Epic... just wow. I would have died for this before my PDN Sterling 5HH came around. I can't believe you're selling it. Best finish, neck ever,

    Roasted Birdseye with Pau Ferro?

    Mahogany instead of Bass wood? The ONLY transparent Bongo finish

    awesome

    $1600 is a STEAL for this beauty! I already have this one in the HH config, and it's just incredible.

    I have the Big Al version, and yes the roasted neck is the best ever!!! If you have this in a week or two after I pay the mortgage I'll take it to add to the PDN collection. How I break the news to Mrs. Spike I am not sure yet....Musicman rocks!!

    These pictures won't do it justice, the camera on my Nexus 4 isn't the best. Eek gotta clean some dust off it too.

    I honestly believe whoever is waiting in the weeds to buy this is going to be SHOCKED when they open it up. I promise you, this is unbelievable in person. The birdseye & Pau Ferro with that awesome roasted tint.

    Get a tort guard & its sick

    Heres my PDN

    Thanks man, these things are so sweet, I might still keep it but try some different strings to see what kind of sounds I can get. Maybe some pressurewounds.
