    (UPDATE: I just bought a bunch of very expensive tools and MUST SELL this bass...)

    In the middle of a set last night, I realized that while I've always had good intentions about learning to play a 5, my hands have 20 years in on 4 bangers and that's the way they wanna stay.

    In the 40-odd basses I've owned and the many more I've worked on, this bass has the nicest neck. I keep wanting to keep it, just because the neck is so nice and the playability is absurd. Will set up for clean action at less than 2/32 at the 12th fret. And, of course, it sounds sweeeeet.

    I kinda wanta make a trade offer with my new 4 string Bongo, but, I fear I'd have second thoughts.

    And a Bongo for a Bongo is too... Bongo.

    That is by far the least offensive looking Bongo I've ever seen. Nice color combination.

    You should HEAR it. You'll think it's the best looking bass you've ever seen.

    I have to agree. I have the same bass, same color, same set-up. Yeah, it's the best guitar I've ever owned. I haven't played my other two since I got my Bongo. It's become my full-time guitar. Highly recommended to anyone here.
