    For sale is my EBMM Bongo 4 H/S. This bass is an incredible instrument and was my main instrument from June 2009 to just a few weeks ago, as such it has seen it's fair share of wear and tear, that i've documented as much as possible in the photos below.

    Most prominently it's missing the volume knob (a casualty of an NYC winter 6/7 years ago), I don't have the knob anymore and am not 100% on how easy it would be to reattach.

    Other than that it has it's share of nicks and scrapes all over, but plays great with a furiously low action and just a generally beautiful sound. The weight is right at 10lbs. It's super high output, easy to play and just a blast. $750 shipped to the Lower 48, including the non OEM hard case also pictured. Trades I have two possible interests: P basses OR an Aguilar SL112 cab, nothing else could really tempt me.

    Here are some quick videos I made, the first two videos are direct into my Focusrite Scarlett 2i2, the last video is from the DI out of my TCRH450 into the interface:

    I have played on this instrument. It is a wonderful example of Ernie Ball craftsmanship. Sam is a great person, have no fear dealing with him.
