    I played one at GC the other day, I liked it... as long as I played with my eyes closed. I'm sorry, but it just looks weird...

    I like the look. Thats a great finish. I thought you had a black 5 string bongo...are you now a multi bongo man?

    Is the 5 string bongo a 35" scale?

    Yeah, he has to share himself with two bongos.. it's such a rough life for some people.

    I love that Bass.. I love it, it is sexy as (insert something extremely sexy here)..

    I need a bongo.
     
  6. Beautiful finish. Played one yesterday, it's now my favorite MM bass. I love the tone and feel.

    The only thing that irks me is the neck pickup messes with my slap technique cause I'm just used to one pickup. Despite this, I love them! Enjoy it!

    I have heard the space for slap business from more than one person, so I figure it must be true. I only slap humans and, once, a marsupial.

    I am indeed in a multiple Bongo Frenzy. I love the fiver so much that I really wanted to try the four, and it does turn out to be just as good. Special thanks to traiblazer Bob from Ohio who decided the Bongo 4 was not for him and so passed it on to me.

    Both Bongos are 34" scale although I don't know, that fiver is a LONG sucker. The case is over there leaning against a Lakland case (the Lakland is a 35") and the Bongo case is about four or five inches longer. Makes you wonder.
     
  10. I played a Bongo 5'er at GC and I didnt like it...I'm sure it was the poor set-up.

    Whats with the Bongo name? Isn't that a term related to our non-musical drummer brethren? Looks like a Sabre IN THE YEAR TWO THOUSAND!!!!:)

    Everybodys technique is obviously different, but I had no problem slapping around a Bongo 4 or 5. And IMHO, the Bongo is the best bass EBMM has ever made.

    The only gripe I have is that the string spacing on the five is too narrow to doublethumb. Otherwise, a Bongo 5 would be in my future.

    Great pics, cowkeeper!

    I was watching MTV (shame on me) and there was a Hilary Duff live vid and her bassist was using a red Bongo!!!
     
  15. Bongo is like a girl who loves to cook, who will make love any time you want and any way you want, is kind, sweet and has a wonderful personality, but is as ugly as a toilet seat.

    Most of us fellas would pass. We'd rather dine out seven days a week than live with the Gorgon of Medusa.

    That colour is just soooooo yummy! It's almost the same colour as my motorbike.

    So far, no Bongo's in Australia :(
