    hey everybody i just wanted to know what some people thought of the bongo fretless models. I have heard many good things about bongo, might be interested in getting one myself. How do the fretless models stack up against other those of other brands near the same price?

    thanks

    Fretless Bongos are awesome. Fretless Bongos are great espescially if you are a fan of fretless Stingrays and Sterlings like I was. Fretless basses with a humbucker in the Musicman sweetspot is my favorite fretless sound. Combine that sound with one of the best preamps available really makes for a nice bass. At this price range a Fretless Bongo is right up at the top of the heat probably with Lakland skylines, Warwicks :scowl: and of course other Musicmans. Of course even better than owning a fretless Bongo is owning a Fretted as well.
