    Finally got her in yesterday. The pictures don't do the Tangerine Pearl color justice. Still has the plastic on the pickguard for now too.

    Yeah, the tangerine pearl is a very cool color. You've got a winner, there!

    Yeah, I tried one in a shop a while back, used, but didn't get it because I was there to buy something else. I loved the feel and sound of it. I finally found one that I loved the color of.

    You should definitely rectify that :)

    Don't mirror them this time. :D


    Sweet looking bass. Nice to see a bongo that isn't black.

    Haha, yeah, and because it's 'mirrored' it makes it that much harder to find in colors other than black. Luckily, Music Man can get you a lefty in any color. Wish they had a Candy Grape color too, that would be a pretty in a Bongo.

    I think one day I'll try one our because I LOVE my MusicMan bass but I want a 6 string. Something about the Bongo's look that turns me off but I gotta get pass that. It's only the look and I need to not let that stop me from testing one. Congrats on the new bongo. Enjoy!

    First time I saw them, I didn't care for the looks either. Then over time, and after hearing one and playing one, that outlook changed. Now, I love the funky looks of it.

    You forget about the looks once you start playing with that awesome 4 band pre, even if you like the looks. The pre in the Bongo is crazy :)

    Took a couple of pictures outside that shows the color a little better.
