    So strangely enough my Stingray 5 wins the ergonomic contest for me. The Bongo 5 can go. The bass closet has to stay workable. I got it new from MF in January.
    I sent it back to the factory for a checkup since I would sometimes pull a G string note off the fretboard.
    They did a setup and verified the bass was factory spec.
    Basically told me it was my technique. I fixed that but still like the ray more.
    It has a small crack in the factory case, which is not even noticeable unless you look for it. (so much for shipping things back to the factory). The front is pristine and the pickguard still has the protective plastic on it. The back has one or two really, and I mean REALLY light marks (from shirt buttons maybe, 'cause I never let buckles near my basses'). And I recently bumped the headstock against the closet shelf, leaving a really tiny mark.
    1100.00 shipped con US. No trades

    Cool - no problem. I used to have a Bongo exactly like this one. Wish I still did - these basses sound great and are extremely versatile. GLWTS!

    You really have to get out a magnifying glass to find any flaws.
    Still no trades though.
