    Got this in the nail yesterday and I gotta say I'm impressed!

    Full rosewood neck stingray - really digging the feel of it, the back of the neck is unfinished which makes it silky smooth.

    Included a couple of sweetwater's pro pics as they are better photographers than I'll ever be!!

    Very nice. I picked up an all rosewood neck Bongo 5 HH from Bass Central a few weeks ago. The neck is phenominal and silking smooth is a great way to describe the feel.

    What's your take on the tone? Compared to a standard model Bongo, mine seems to be more focused if that makes sense.

    Is there a fretboard laminate on that? Or is it all one piece?

    How cool would a rosewood neck with a maple board be? Kind of the opposite of what we're used to seeing.

    Lovely bass. Great color and woods. Congrats!


    Would love to try a 5'er Ray for about a thousand weekends.

    I can only parrot what everyone else has said. That's a gorgeous bass and you should be very proud to have it.

    And welcome to the club!

    Decided I didn't like the white on white of the body, so I ordered a rosewood effect pickguard - gotta day I think it's a big improvement! Here it is next to the sadowsky that joined the stable today:
