    A musicman Bongo to buy?

    Hello, in mercadolibre.com (the latinamerican version of ebay) are selling a Bongo that seems good and is quite cheap... what do you think? do I go for it? I am not so much in love with blue basses and less with the "bongo" type but for the price I think is a bargain...

    The price in dollars is $900.00

    cheers

    P.D. I don't know why but I posted this in the effects forum... can anybody change it to the right forum... sorry!

    I say don't buy it. If you don't like blue and you like bongo's even less, it's not a bargain for you ;)

    Why the heck would you buy a bass you don't particularly like? You'll be more focused on the bass itself rather than its performance.

    Switch it around...

    There's a great deal on a 1990 Iroc Z Camaro. should I I buy it because it has great performance and the price is right even though I like SUV's? Hell no. You'll never see beyond the fact that it's an Iroc z...or a bongo.

    I´m starting to fall in love with it... hehe... I´ve seen some videos in youtube and all picture it as an extraordinary bass... damn... damn GAS , now I am sick of it... after all if I don't like it I could sale it someday... (it would be my 8th bass in the barn, would be the first USA made and my first and only active bass)... :p
