    Isn't that pretty much saying, "Even though the modification was done to the electronics, this bass sounds amazing acoustically, and even better when the electronics are actually used!"? :eyebrow:

    And regardless of what was done to arguably the best feature of the Bongo, am I the only one who thinks that IE's policy of "This is also up for purchase on a sales floor, so even if you win you might not have won" is complete and utter crap, and should be banned by eBay?

    Jeeze, whatever was done to that thing, don't buy it. That particular GC is by my house and they are the biggest bunch of crooks and idiots you've ever met. Due to a screw up on their part I was turned down for a $400 credit app, which caused me to lose the 1yr no payment-no interest financing. And, according to them, you can't re-file another app for 30 days.

    Now, with that said, I've just recently walked into a Lincoln Mercury dealer and walked out with a brand new Aviator for my wife. Credit went through just fine and loan is in my name, not both of us. So tell me, how could the GC app come back denied for $400 friggining dollars ?. My credit rating has been spotless all my life, *** !?
