    It's here. Bongo 4, HS in Egyptian Smoke with a Python pickguard.

    According to EBMM, it's a 2003 and was at a NAMM show. NAMM BASS! :D :D :hyper:

    Congrats! Now, put that bass back in its case immediately and clean all that mess in your room before you play one note! And I mean it!

    LOL. I was planning on cleaning my room today when I got home, but the bass came in, so no cleaning room tonight. I also just bought a 1GB RAM stick for my MacBook (so I'll have the full 2GBs), but that just got delayed until like after dinner cause of the bass. :D

    Anyway, congrats. I think bongo's look cool. I wouldn't mind owning one...I know were you live!

    Nope. No Wonder Wiped yet. It sure does need the fretboard conditioner though. Will probably happen tomorrow afternoon/evening or Saturday, if I decide to do a string change.

    Nice Bongo. They're a lot of fun to play, and I love the massive tone.
