Yeeehah! Got my new Bongo 5 yesterday and immediately took it to a cover gig so I could force myself to get used to the 4. I have to use for a gig I have with Bumblefoot (www.bumblefoot.com) next saturday and wanted to make sure I'm thoroughly used to the 5th string. I am unbelieveably in love - even more than with my 4 and believe this may very well become my one and only axe. The sound of these basses is absolutely incredible, the piezo adds an even new dimension, and I honestly believe with all my heart and soul that if anyone who ever owned any bass in this pricerange took one of these basses on a gig they'd buy one instantly. It just responds and sounds better than anything I've ever laid my hands on - and I've pleyd some pretty decent basses. Anyway... I have a dilemma and really need help because I'm torturing myself. I'll try to keep this short: I was originally getting the bass in radiance red. There was a screw up and my bass wouldn't be ready by the time I needed it. I was offered one in burgundy. I said no, I don't like burgundy. I was offered a $300 discount if I took the burgandy. Suddenly brugandy was on my list of favorite colors. I was also told that I could swap it back if I were really unhappy - pay the extra, and get the red one I originally wanted. I got the bass and the setup is absolutely amazing. It fell right into my hands and feels even better than my other bongo. I completely love it. I'm ok with the color too, but I don't LOVE it. There's a problem with the piezo electronics and I'm going to have to send the bass back. Is it worth the $300 extra bucks and the gamble that I'm not going to love the feel of the other one as much as this to get a color I know I'm going to love? I'm incredibly torn.... money is tight but I can afford it.... Also added to my confusion is the fact that I like to play with a lot of groups. Radiance red could stand out like a sore thumb if I land a good darker natured gig - the burgandy fits all. HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Here's 2 pics of other guys basses so ya can see the difference. Thanks to whoever these basses belong to and sorry for stealing them. I've stolen so many bongo pics though that I don't know who's belongs to who. Feel free to claim your bass. My burgandy has a black pickguard which I like more than the tort.
