Bongo Deal at the New Orleans GC

  1. I'm not a fan, but for those of you who are, there is a HH 5 string Bongo at the GC in New Orleans for about $950 (I forget the exact price). I didn't look it over or even pick it up, but I'm sure it was the display model. The color? according to the MM wesite: Desert Gold. According to me: BRIGHTASS ORANGE. I hope someone can take advantage.

    Before I left San Diego last August, the GC there blew out ALL the MM's for cost and are not stocking them. Here in Oklahoma City, they have a good selection of Bongos, Stingrays, SUBs and even a Sterling.
    Must be regional.

    They had one just like that at the GC in Clackamas, Oregon, priced at $874 since they had two on the wall.

    I walked out with it for $800, including OHSC. :D

    The color is really growing on me, BTW. It's a nice change from the rest of my basses, most of which are black:

  4. Man, that orange looks like what Mazda uses to advertise the RX-8 and the Mazdaspeed Mazda6. It's very...uh...BOYRACER.

    I bet it looks dead sexy under stage lights, though. Nice family you've got there.
