    WOOHOO! My Starry Night Bongo 4HH that I ordered on June 8th arrived! This thing is absolutely gorgeous, the starry night finish looks AMAZING in person. Holy cow it's hard to photograph though! Either the flash makes the sparkles flash back or it looks blue/grey without the flash. It has way more sparkle to it than the pictures without the flash show. Big kudos to EBMM, not only is this bass beautiful, the set up on it from the factory is perfect. Great low action, no fret buzz, and perfectly in tune. I know it came that way from the factory given the my dealer opened the sealed box in front of me this afternoon.

    On to some pictures...

    First with flash:

    And now without flash:

    Again without flash:

    Those necks feel great too. I played a starry night SR5 yesterday, and the neck was super fast.

    To echo the others, that neck is worth the price of admission.
