    Great, great bass here folks. If you've never played a Bongo, buy this now and change your life forever!

    I took deliver of this beauty in February 2012 and has served as my studio bass. It has not seen dingy bars, obnoxious drunk people, cigarette smoke, or beer spills. I'll put her at 9.5/10 as nothing is perfect. Here she is pictured next to my former Ice Blue Bongo.

    This is a no trade item, I have enough stuff. $1175 Shipped CONUS via PayPal Will ship with OHSC in great shape. No International or shipping to trolls under bridges.

    They look like a couple single celled organisms mating under a microscope.
    I can testify- A Bongo 5HH just changed my life, and it can happen to you too:)

    what kind of work has been done to it? neck good? truss rod? any high frets? how low do you have the action set?

    I currently have a Bongo 4, looking to upgrade to a 5. Sorry for all the Q's.

    Thanks.

    Everything works perfectly, action set medium-low, no fret issues, neck is perfect and truss works both ways. No work was done on it, only crazy people do stuff like that!

    Why, yes, I do. But it is not Pearl Blue, it is Cobalt Blue!

    I know - I used to own it I believe (if it's the one guy.ncognito sold earlier this year.)

    Now, if this Bongo here is the same blue as my 2011 SR5 HH, it's a beautiful color in person.

    It is the same. And a killer to boot, as I'm sure the one being sold here is. Bongos RULE.

    I am very sorry to hijack this thread but I must ask what is the name of the pickguard color on MarkusBass's Bongo? Is it abalone? Moonstone? I have a blue pearl Bongo 4 coming to me hopefully today and I would love to swap out the white pearloid PG for it--it looks amazing!

    Anyway, free bump!

    Bump!:)

    OK, last question and then I'll leave this thread alone: I know that abalone comes stock on certain Bongo 4HHs depending on the color scheme, and I would rather have an actual EBMM one than a WD or Pickguard heaven one. Anyone have any idea where to buy a true Bongo abalone HH4 Bongo pickguard?

    Again, I apologize for the hijacking, and wish you the best of luck with the sale. If I hadn't already determined that I am an inept 5-string player (20% more inept than I am with 4 strings) I'd be snapping this beauty up!
