I really have my heart set on a Bongo after reading all the good reports. The problem is that I can't get my hands on one in any local GuitarCenter (or any other music store). They do have the usual assortment of StingRays, Sterlings, etc, according to the manager, though. My question is this: can I get a "feel" for what the Bongo will play like by playing one of the other MMs? If so, which one? I currently play a Peavey T40. As I understand it, my T40 neck is slightly larger than the Bongo neck. That is good as I'm looking to "downsize" anyway. Thanks.
