SOLD Musicman Bongo 5HH - Marty Bell Western Blue big sparkle/flake finish

Discussion in 'For Sale: Bass Guitars' started by baba, Jan 24, 2017.

  1. Price:
    Musicman Bongo 5HH for sale. I had this finished in a big sparkle/flake Western Blue by the finish master Marty Bell (Marty Bell Finishing - PREMIER GUITAR FINISHING) about 5 years ago or so. I had the body, neck, and headstock included and I think it cost me about $650 at the time. There is probably still a pic in the gallery of it in progress. The pics don't do it justice, it is simply outstanding finish work and I can't find any dings on it. I never drilled the pickguard holes so I would have an option to double tape it on if desired, or leave off for another vibe. It plays and sounds great, but I need new toys and this one doesn't get gigged....sadly,out it goes. Here is a link to more pics: Musicman Bongo 5HH Blue Flake Slideshow by Andy Andy

    Dropped to $1050 shipped to CON US.

    I am not sure that I have seen a cooler looking bass than that in a while. Wish you were taking trade offers bump.

    Is the headstock sticker original ?
  7. No, that had to be replaced during the refinish.

  18. I will try to get the weight at a friend's house....or just break down and buy a scale.
  19. WOW! I cannot fathom this beautiful Bongo has not sold. I still think about it, though I it will be a few months that I could buy it. Good luck.
