    Awhile ago (ok, ok, more like November/December) I had a thread on here about how I ordered a Cardinal Red Sparkle EBMM Bongo. It landed at ThePerfectBass last week, and it just showed up on my doorstep today.
    Quick Specs:
    Cardinal Red Sparkle - PDN/limited color (James had to work some voodoo magic to get it, since I ordered after it was discontinued)
    5 String, Unlined Fretless
    Humbucker, Single Coil, Piezo pickups

    Been playing it and of course it's awesome. It's one heck of a mate to my Bongo 6HS. Just some quick pictures, then away I go back to play it more tonight.

    Very nice! I had a stealth HS, great pickup combo, very versatile. Love the unlined fretless. IMHO Bongos have the best headstock.
