and okay, yes, I'll admit it. It sounded awesome.
still looks hideous, though
I played a groove tool 5 string.
Looked cool, played good, sounded good. Not worth the $700 for it's usedness.
Still a nice bass though.
I just hate the headstocks on bongos! i'm sure they sound great...but i can't bring myself to throw that kinda dough on something so horrid looking
it is an ugly ugly thing.
i played one a few weeks ago. sounded good. IMO there wasn't enough room for the right hand to work. to much stuff going on over there.
My only qualm with it is the neck pup being too close to the 24th fret... NO room
When I opened up the BP in which the Bongo is reviewed and turned to its review, my FIRST thought was 'cool headstock!'.
It isn't that it's just ugly, although it's certainly that. It's also that it's made out of cheap materials. The knobs, pots, whatever you want to call them, feel cheap and cheesy.
Here we go again. The ESP'er bashing Bongos. Why don't you tell us where it was that you actually played one and all the specs...
I would guess not. Not when you can get them new for the same price!!
I played DoD just a few minutes ago.
i played one at Corner Music (only for a few minutes though) because I was too wrapped up in playing their KSD ProtoJ's!
I take it you are intimately familiar with both 'cheap' and 'cheesy'.
My favorite thing about the Bongo (besides the awesome tones you can dial straight out of the bass) is the way that the knobs look and feel. I guess I just have a thing for basses made out of cheap materials.
You think that's bad. I played a mandolin yesterday! I swear it's just like a bass. except instead of four fat strings there are eight skinny ones in pairs of two and it's strung upside down. And if you believe that one...
I had the same experience with it... it sounded nice but the lack of space between the fretboard and the neck pickup made it difficult for me to play.
i have a 1979 gibson G3 and the bongo looks just like it only smaller. well actually it is pretty nasty looking. sorry. plays really nice though, i've already started to save up for one.
blah, blah, blah, blah, blooba. bleev blah bappa blah, bla blabba blo bleen. bla, blah bla bla bla blab blabber ble blu bla bla.
Awwww... is somebody have Bongo issues? Isn't that cute.
THANK YOU!!!! Nice to know I'm not the only one irked by this. That damn neck PU makes it impossible for me to pop the D/G strings.
