    Very Nice, I like that Stealth Bongo.

    I wonder if it has a switch for "Stealth mode" :p

    By the way, I wanted to head to NAMM This year and am kicking myself for not going.

    Anyone know how one would attend? I heard you must be a vendor or merchant, perhaps some other back alley methods of getting in? :ninja::ninja::ninja:

    No, but in the interests of environmental friendliness, they now have a "half flush / full flush" switch on them! :D


    (BAM)

    Its definitely an attractive color. Would look nice on a fretless sterling, or a fretted with maple fb. mmm.
     
  18. stealth? no way...i can still see it!

    i suppose they are just saying it is invisible to radar like they say the stealth bomber is...
