I always have time to kill before my lesson starts, so usually I go look at the basses and see what's new. Yesterday they had a pewter(ish) colored Bongo 5 with a single pickup. Played it for about 10 minutes. I was pretty damn impressed. MM pickup positioning takes some getting used to for me, since I like having a pickup under my fingers when I pluck, and I like plucking closer to the neck. It wasn't at all bad, though. The body, as much as it's shape and design is a subject of much debate, is really comfortable and seems to want to balance pretty well on the knee. Shame they want about $1,200 more than I have to spend.
