    Hi guys, Just wonedering if you can help me identify the colour of my new bongo.

    I have narrowed it down to Graphite Pearl, Saphire Black and Black Sparkle.

    I have attatched 2 photos of it, perhaps there is a "Bongo-Rain-Man" out there who can definitively pick it.

    It has the year 2003 and the number 163 stamped in the neck pocket if that helps.

    Not black sparkle. Too dark to be graphite pearl so it must be sapphire black :smug:

    I just looked at the pics myself and the bass in relal life is a few shades lighter than in the pic. It is quite sparkly but I have never seen any ernie ball finishes in reall life before so have nothing to compare it with. I guess if anyone asks me I will say it is probably sapphire black... thanks.

Sign up as a member at the EB/MM forums - they have a thread where any owner, new or used, can post their serial number and get the instrument's "Birthday", color, and where it was originally shipped to - you're sure to get the correct color from their records far more than from our eyes. :D

    +1. Pretty sure it's Sapphire Black, though.
