My birthday is comming up and my GF wants to finance me my first "quality bass" at the 1000-1600$ price range. At first, i was thinking possibly a fender precision, but after contemplating for a while i have my sights set on this: http://www.music-man.com/instruments/bongo4.php I've never plaid or even seen a Bongo, but from what i hear it has a huge assortment of possible tones, and is extremely comfortable to play. i know alot of people think it is ugly, but i think it is sexy. I'm very hard for this instrument right now. For arguments sake lets pretend you can get either bass for the same price. Would anyone take a Fender Precesion over a Ernie Ball Bongo? If so, why?
