    Does anyone know if the Bongo John Myung plays might be made into a production model, maybe a sig bass? It's a Bongo 6 with a Bongo 5 neck. The spacing would be tighter obviously, but that would definitely work for me :) EBMM can leave the preamp as is, thank you very much! :)

    You don't want the stock Bongo 6?

    I had one for a while and it was great, but that fretboard leans toward the wide side.

    Guess since we started a new thread, might as well put up the one Bongo I have left in the collection.
    Although, I am working on securing a deal on another one.
    Working on nabbing a Bongo lined fretless HS4. Fingers and eyeballs crossed it works out.
    But for now, here is my 2004 Lava Pearl HH4.

    I love the Bongo but this one in particular is not my cup of tea. It took out the essence of the Bongo IMHO.

    Thank BMW for that I hear they are the guys and gals that that helped the looks of the bongo.

    Sooo you came into a thread dedicated to a bass, to throw out an age-old, well worn out bash against it? Nothing better to do tonight eh?
