  1. SOLD.

    Up for sale is my Music Man Bongo 5 string in Desert Gold. This is the double humbucker model, and is currently strung with a set of Ernie Ball Cobalts. It has only 2 tiny nicks on the headstock which are shown in the photos. I put an instrument cable jack near the nicks in the photos for size reference, and to point. Weighs in at exactly 9.0 pounds.

    It is a fantastic bass, but I find myself only playing short scale basses lately, and sadly Music Man doesn't sell any short scale Bongos.

    Price is $1100 shipped or $1050 local(Atlanta). Includes original hard shell case, and leather strap with straplocks. I am selling this to purchase a Birdsong HY5, so the only trades that would interest me are trades for a quality short scale 5 string.

    DAMMIT! I'm saving up for a bongo like this or in stealth! Hopefully this is available when I get my check!

    Just damn. He's local too.
  4. Lunch bump. 73jbass if you would like to meet up to test drive it just let me know.

    It's a fantastic bass, but sadly just too long for my 5'4" frame. I do dream of the day when Music Man starts making a short scale 5 string Bongo.

    If anyone would like any more pics I would be happy to take them. Also, if requested I could even do a video or audio demo. Bongo basses are very well documented though, so it might be redundant.

    This color looks insanely good in person. It's hard to capture its quality really well in photos.

    Any chance you would be interested in a Tobias Killer B 6?
