    IMG_5200.jpg Selling my Sky Blue 5-string Ernie Ball Music Man Bongo with two humbuckers. The Bongo is Music Man's rendition of a bold, modern-styled bass. I bought the bass new in August 2019 and toured with it for half a year. It was well-played, and also well-taken care of. It is a very playable, lightweight bass, which was good for standing with on stage for hours. It is in excellent condition, with no sound problems. The bass is very comfortable to play and the neck feels great. The tone shaping options are extensive with the 4-band EQ and pickup blend. The neck is straight, the frets are in great condition, the truss rod works well, and there is no buzzing. The only issues are cosmetic, as there is one noticeable chip in the finish at the bottom horn of the guitar body and one on the side of the neck under the frets. The bass comes strung with GHS Bass Boomers (but could use a restringing). I replaced the original pickguard with the one pictured here, but will give you the original white pickguard with the bass in case you want to change it. The bass comes with the original hardshell Music Man Case pictured. The case has some scratches, but is in great condition structurally.

    Basswood body -- lightweight and resonant
    2 Music Man Neodymium humbucking pickups -- these pack a serious punch with great clarity
    18V Music Man preamp w/4-band EQ
    Master volume and pickup blend control knobs
    Gloss-finished maple neck
    Rosewood fretboard
    Built in the U.S.A.

    $1600 including shipping to CONUS

    Please contact me with any questions.

    Agreed, I have the same 5HH in tangerine pearl. I don't plan to ever let her go. Beautiful in every aspect IMO.
