I went to my local guitar center today and saw the 4 and 5 string bongos on the wall. I went over, grabbed the four, and plugged it into an svt 350 and ampeg 6x10 hlf. It sounded GREAT. It also played really well... I own a late eightys stingray. I couldnt stop thinking how much better this sounded than my ray. The only complaint i have is the neck PU makes some slap hard to do, but im sure i can get used to it. Plus i have a roscoe that i can get nice slap tones out of. The manager is a good friend of mine and offered to let me trade my ray for the bongo if I really wanted to. Im gonna think on it, but I just wanted to ask opinions, epesh of bovinehost (having both basses and all). Thanks!
