I just traded in my eb stingray for a 4 string bongo. I was originally going to exchange the stingray for another one (since mine had scratches on it when it was supposed to be "new"), but I saw the bongo there and just had to check it out. After playing with it for about an hour, I decided I would rather have the bongo than the stingray. The stingray was great, but the bongo just seemed like it could be a lot more versatile. Also, it was VERY responsive. Anyway, I got hooked up with a pretty phat price too, I got the bongo out the door for $1030.
