    is there much of a difference tonally between these 2 bad boys plugged in? I had a go at the search function and couldnt see what I was looking for.

    anyway I've been offered a 2001 cherryburst semi hollow with f-hole in a deal for my Bongo and the trade takes place later today.I already have a regular ASAT which I have a serious soft spot for, but will a semi hollow bring anything new to the table?

    I'm still going to do the deal cos these basses are just flat out cool in ways that the Bongo is not,I'm just inquisitive as the clock ticks down on new bass day!

    I have the HB with f hole. I have never played the solid body version so I don't know if there is a tonal difference. All I know is that the HB just looks cool! :p

    I have both. I don't notice much difference in amplified tone between the two. The MFD tone pretty much dominates. You could probably strap a pair of MFDs to a 2 by 4 and they would sound great.

    I'm with Freddels, I love the way the SHB looks, but I also love the looks of my black solidbody ASAT, and they both sound and play great. They are both definitely keepers.
