    Beautiful. Even as I get out of the Bongo game, they will always have a place in my heart. The black hardware is so good.

    Heard a Bongo for the 1st time last night while watching the Les Paul Tribute. Sounded great!

    Enjoy!

    Im looking at that exact model at my GC. (Ill check for hiss)

    Since its a special edition w/ roast and ebony, i am curious whether the frets are ss. Called EB, and they arent sure. Gonna try and take my BigAl Neptune and try and compare. Not that its a deal breaker neccessarily, but I do likey the ss.

    Did you see reference to a name for the color, other than GC purple metallic?

    Bongos are so great, and a bit nerdy in the best possible way.

    Enjoy it, such a beautiful bass and I don't think there is a tone you can't get out of a Bongo. I'm never going to let mine go.

    Nice looking bass. Kenny Chesney's live bassist rocked the Bongo 5's like a boss. Congrats
