I was ALMOST a Bongo convert

    I went to GC again today (this time the one in Buffalo) and did something I thought I'd never do...... I played a Bongo.....and I liked it :bassist: Remember, in a different thread, I said if someone gave me one of these I'd sell it and buy something I actually liked.

    Well, I was almost drawn into the dark side :help: but then help came in the form of a black Sting Ray with maple board :hyper: Super funky tone!

    I came to the conclusion that if I had to walk out of there with one bass, it would be the black / maple Ray.

    I came to the more important conclusion that I wasn't walking out of there with either, because I have another bass in progress that I'll need to pay for soon ;)

    Peace,

    In that case it was probably better to run out of there.
