    YEAH!

    Got my Musicman Bongo today!!!!!!!!
    WOHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

    4-stringed, desert gold, dual humbuckers, white beautiful pickguard!

    I´ve only played it for a few hours but straight out of the box, it ROCKS! MAN THIS IS THEEE BASS!

    It has soo many soundvariations, the neck is AWSOME (great finish btw!) and the whole bass is completely flawless!

    Mmmm, this bass is absolutely a keeper. Woha!!

    Thank you Ernieball! :bassist: :bassist: :bassist:

    +1 and Black pearl/ black ice looks nicer than white on the orange IMO, makes it look all halloween like.

    I guess I never should have made this thread... :scowl:

    Well, I - me, moi, ich, jag - like the bass, I love the color and I don´t have any pics yet. And a few months ago I probably would have agreed on the halloweencomment but now - in my lap and just not on a picture on the screen - it looks GREAT!!!!

    Everyone knows the bass doesn't exist unless theirs pic to prove it.

    Congrats on the new Bongo--the best production bass out there, IMNSHO. Ignore people too dumb to realize they didn't buy your bass, but you did. :D

    And, don't show Patrick any pictures of your Bongo--he'll just want to poop on it, anyway. :bag:

    Congratulations, fellow Bongoloid.

    Sounds like your bass is a lot like my bass.

    Is it?

    Congrats. Bongos are killer basses for the price. My favorite production bass. I will own an HH5, someday...

    Bet it sounds killer, I'd buy that thing in a heartbeat if it didn't look like a spaceship.

    Bovine >>> Actually, it was when I saw the colour "upfront" on your website that I decided to buy the desert gold-one. Great website btw!!!!! All the info I needed to know that the Bongo was "the one" for me! Thanks!:) And yes, your bass looks almost like mine, but my Bongo has the pearlwhite pickguard!

    Zirc>>> Actually, the look more like spaceships when you watch em on pictures and so on. In real life, Bongos are soooo beautiful!

    Embellisher >>> My favorite too!!!!:) :hyper:

    All of you wanting pics >>> :spit:

    FYI it's Bongolian, or Bongorian if you're a fan of SouthPark and say it with a Chinese accent ;)

    Exactly. In fact, you better beware... the bass is probably becoming more transparent every day you don't post. By now, you're probably wondering why you can't pick it up anymore... your hands just pass right thru it... eventually, it will be "erased from existence"... it's the TB curse... so POST SOON BEFORE IT'S TOO LATE!! SAVE YOUR BONGO!!!!
