    I got this off of eBay back in May. I just now took pics. It's brand new except for a small knick on the headstock which you can see in the photos. It even came with the HS case!

    Cool bass. I played a bongo for a little once. I don't really like the shape at all.

    I picked up this bass last February and can't put it down!
    It plays and sounds fantastic.

    My compliments! I think the Bongo is the first real new bass in the whole era of custom basses and so on. This is a real affordable new shape and shows that some craftsmen have a bit of guts. Wether you like it or not (conservatives don't like it in my opinion) it always takes your eyes. You can't take them off....

    Great colour too, I hope you'll be really satisfied with it. If I would have a band with a lot more money then I have now, I would certainly buy one. Almost only because of the looks...
  10. Congrats,
    Saw a guy playing one with a local Ska band last week and thought it looked cool.It also sounded very good.Good pick.

    Very nice! I had a that same bass in 5 string - but I switched to the 4 string when I realized I didn't have a four string in my shed :eek:
