  1. Hello. I just got my first Musicman/EB bass. I have had a couple Laklands, and a Peavey Grind (for sale!) and cheap Yamahas, but I like this one the best of all. The Laklands were close, but this has soo many different tones. Well, I guess that's it, I'm in the club as a Bongo believer! Oh, I'm thinking of getting a perloid, dark greeen, dark red, or moonstone pickguard. Which one would you get?

    Yes, leave it the way it is. That bongo is the first one that I would actually consider getting.
     
  7. Haha I expected a response like that. Yes, it's a Stealth Bongo.

    Leave it.

    The black strings are a nice touch. Be sure not to leave it out at night -- you might not be able to find it in the dark.

    How much more black could it be?

    None. None more black.
     
  15. Good Lord that's beautiful. And I always thought bongos were ugly.... leave it black....

    I say keep the black!

    :mad:
     
  20. If you put a bright pickguard on that stealth you had better hope there are no frisbee dogs in the audience. Don't do it.

    That said, I think the light guards look good on the other dark (but not flat) Bongos. Moonstone on sapphire black is my combo. Sweet.
