    I just picked up my new fretless Bongo and she's killer. Thought I'd share some pics with you all.

    Wow man! Great bass ;).

    How do you like the tone?

    I have a bass myself (an Ibanez) with almost excact the same specs, i.e MM\J p.u's, Maple neck, basswood body and rosewood fingerboard! So i thought i should ask you what it sounded like, hehe :)

    Congratulations from norway!

    wow!!! That looks so great! And I thought I liked my desert gold one. I know it may sound funny, but I can't help but taste vanilla what I look at it.

    Yes! I thought it was rosewood, and was dissapointed. Glad to know you have taste!
     
  17. Andrew, you cant see it, but theres a major problem with that bass.

    I cant go into detail right now about it.

    Ill need to examine it first hand, so Ill PM you my shipping address soon and you can send the bass to me.

    You may never get it back.

    Travis...with the luck you've had of late I wish I could help you out. But, NO ONE is taking this out of my hands right now haha.

    I kinda wondered about the pao ferro fingerboard until I played it...and now I see why they use pao ferro. It's actually a beautiful piece of wood and sounds great. Although a Stealth Bongo with an ebony board would look killer.
