    Even though I've been harangued about not having the single pickup Bongo, I fear I am done.

    [​IMG]

    L-R: Limited Edition Envy Green Bongo 5, Sapphire Black Bongo 5, Desert Gold Bongo 4, Carbon Blue Pearl Bongo 4.

    If I can't get it done with those, I'm going to gnaw my fingers off.

    And I apologize in advance to Joe Nerve.

    Wow...
     
  3. I'd bet that's more Bongos than many stores have in stock.

    Nice stable, Jack. ;)

    Hey, did anyone ever notice that those Bongos look just like toile.....j/k :p Cool collection. Strangely enough, those orange Bongos are the most common color I've seen.

    Very nice collection.
    I`m curious, are there any differences in terms of sound, between the two 4`ers and the two 5`ers ?

    I totally dig the desert gold color, and would've gotten my Bongo in that color if I was buying instead of trading at the time.

    Yep, I do, in fact, own all of those. And none of them are even financed, nor did I do anything funny with the mortgage. I did sell of some stuff to be able to afford one or two of them, though - worth it, worth it, worth it.

    Dude, your signature umm, kinda reminds me of a toilet, since it sounds like it's full of crap or something. :meh: ;)

    Nice! I especially dig the green.

    It's good to have a bass to match every outfit.

    Wow, that Envy Green color is the best that I've seen yet. I really have to look into one of those basses at some point. I absolutely love that 4 band preamp that is in those basses.
     
  13. I remember when BMW made their cars in that Orange color. I liked those...
     
  14. Cool green one Bovine, definitely my fav of the bunch...but you need a red one now. :D

    That's a nice collection. But surely there's room for a fretless 4 and 5 Bongo! ;)
