    Found it stuck to the bottom of my shoe - no matter, I need a new toilet seat in the master bedroom can.

    What the hell did you go and waste your money on something like that for. It looks slightly familiar - have I sen it elsewhere before? Hmmm... (edit)... just took another look. I'm sure I've seen that elsewhere.

    2nd edit. I just had a brilliant idea. I need now to find a woodworker who can do it. My toilet seat is going to look exactly like a bongo. I'M ON A MISSION!

    She's a bit of a slut - I'm the fourth TBer to have my way with her, and that's just since November. Some silly people can't appreciate the simplicity of a single pickup bass, if you ask me!

    "Goldie". I think that'll do.
     
  9. Have you seen how much desinger toilet seats sell for?! ;) You could have a business going there :)

    Jeez - I forgot to say congratulations. I always loved the looks of that thing. I think I'm too power and control crazy to ever go for a single H Bongo - but who knows, let me know when you get tired of her. :)

    Jonki, please post some sound clips. I would really like to know what the single pup Bongo sounds like.

    That's not the lid. That's how the bottom looks after... so in this case, you seem to have a serious stomach problem. :D :D

    I'm not a fan of white basses, but If EB hadn't removed the option, I'd buy a white Bongo with a yellow pickguard (from pickguards.us). It'd look like a toilet full of pee. :D

    Congrats! My 2006 fretless Bongo will be of the same color but with a black pearloid pickguard.
     
  18. Man, you gotta love those BONGOS!!! :hyper: :hyper: :hyper:

    That is one rock and rollin' Bongo. If I didn't have two more fivers, and if Heavy Duty hadn't keep sending threatening emails, I probably would have kept that one anyway.

    Sometimes you gotta spread the love, though........

    I do believe that bass was a guest star on the First Official Cowpilot Gig!
