I currently have two basses--a Warwick Corvette Double Buck 5-string and a Line 6 Variax 700 4-string--both purchased used. The Variax I plan to keep because it has some interesting tone variations--regardless if they're authentic sounding or not. The Warwick is great--very solid piece of wood and great sound, but I kinda wish it had more than just 2-band for the active EQ. The neck is also a bit heavy as well. Ever since I played a Bongo a couple of times at a local GC, I've been lusting for one. I love the 4-band EQ and the it just felt "right" in my hands--the action, the neck, the weight. And of course, the tone is just killer--can go from punchy slap to smooth and jazzy. Now, I admit my reasons for wanting a Bongo (particularly the Stealth finish) is mostly a "want" not a "need." I love the look of the Bongo, and that Stealth Black finish is just awesome--looks like some alien high-tech mothership. The 4-band EQ is also so useful for adjusting the tone quickly. I know that I can easily create more variety of tone by simply tweaking the EQ on my Toneport/Gearbox recording interfaceand--it'll make any bass sound a lot more versatile so the 4-band on the Bongo isn't really a good enough reason to spend the money (I don't gig--I just record). That leaves just the look and the feel. I actually think the Warwick looks quite beautiful, so there's no issue there. The feel is where the problem is--I wish the Warwick was lighter--especially the neck. I don't think I can justify keeping the Warwick if I get the Bongo. So I just want to hear your opinions.
