    Just picked this up from Danny R in a trade, really wanted to like it but I just can't get comfortable with Bongos, much as I love the tone and flexibility. So it's on the block. $1000 including shipping to lower 48, or make me a reasonable offer. Paypal OK, prefer USPS MO. No international sales, sorry.

    Minor play wear including light scratches back of neck (reflections in pics are from flash, not scratches, couldn't get them to show up), no functional issues, includes hard case and an additional pickguard (white pearloid). Trades considered (5-string only) but sale preferred.

    Here's Danny's original FS thread for reference.

    more pics against a better background... the compound curves make this thing tough to shoot in room light or flash! Again, no scratches except a couple of very light ones on the back of the neck. What you see in some of the pics is multiple reflections from room lighting off the curves of the body.

    The H/S 5-string bongo's have quickly became one of my dream basses for some reason.
