NBD x 2 - Bongo and Corvette

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by The Ryantist, Nov 23, 2013.

  1. So I did not plan a double NBD, but these two showed up at my house on Wednesday. :D An EBMM Bongo 5 HH and a Warwick Corvette Standard 5. The Bongo is a 2008 I got on ebay and it is near mint. Looks like it just sat in the case for 5 years. The Corvette is a 99 (German) with a wenge neck & bubinga body that I bought from sleevey55 - it is also in excellent condition & doesn't look 14 years old! Thanks also to sleevey55 who was great to deal with. I'll try to get some better pics at some point.

    It's funny how much bigger the Bongo looks and how much more the Corvette weighs :rolleyes:

    How much do they weigh? My Warwick is lightweight and very comfy therefore... 3.9kg pure thunder!;)

    Those are both very nice basses, but that couch is something else. Looks very comfy.
  6. Ha! Yes the couch is very comfy, and it's microfiber, not leather so it was much cheaper than it looks :D

    I haven't weighed them yet, but I can tonight. I will guess that the difference is about 2 lb or 1 kg.
