    here is a link to my old ad. I am looking for a quick local sale in Austin. I was just laid off and need it gone quickly although I might cry a little as she goes. Make me an offer through my email.
    Please ignore the "trade options" on the previous. It is all sale now.

    gz1005@txstate.edu for any questions and offers. $1000 or OBO

    My apologies to anyone interested who isn't local at this time.

    Very fair price, some people here are asking $1200 & thats simply not reasonable. Good luck! If I was in Austin we'd be talking.

    Bump for a REASONABLE Bongo price

    $1,200 seems fair to me. Bongos can run very close to $2K new.

    You can get a brand new 5HH Bongo at ThePerfectBass for $1530ish w/ the public 10% off. The only ones that are near $2k are the Ball Family Reserve ones. In either case, $1200 is a fair place to start for them, IMO. This one is starting in infringe on "steal" territory.

    $1200 is a tad high but if they can get it why not, it only takes 1 to pay it

    "Q: What if someone’s asking price is too high?

    A: Sellers are entitled to ask any price they want for their item. Please do not contact a seller regarding their prices unless you’re interested in purchasing the item. Also, do NOT question a seller's price in a For Sale thread. Making offers via PM or email is OK, but thread interference (debating price publicly) will not be tolerated."

    You're on thin ice arguing this, just fyi, and considering I'm one of the people selling one of those Bongos I would appreciate it if you remove your posts. The justification for my price is that I want to force trades - not screw over a TB member. Keep your opinions to yourself or in the confines of private discussion. kthanks.

    thanks man. The Bongo have a very very aggressive sound. Kind of like a sterling on roids. Love all the musicman stiff though. Keep well!
