    Smile Silhouette Bass Pics

    Not just Bongo Heads..but Silhouette Spooks too!

    In the pic I'm musing as the audience try to figure out Is it a bass? Is it a guitar? It is what it is...a lovely thing! Any other Silhouette pics out there?

    Brilliant, I've always loved the look of those but have never been able to try one (or see one for that matter!)

    What are they actually like? Sound/playability wise...probably immense but I'm very curious.

    Soundwise...like a dark 50's Twin Peaks vibe, strings thru body plus series parallel switching adds to the ringing quality. Usual sihouette feel etc, unlike longscale bass strings are more bendy.

    Although mine is bass tuning (E-e) it plays Ok thru a JC120 plus effects board (EBMM WAH & VolswellJr, Vibetrem, distortion)

    Cool stuff, Johnny!
    bovinehost: Yes, I do agree with that, but if there's nothing wrong then there's nothing wrong.
    Beth: I would compare Bongo to Tommy Lee Jones. Bad a$$ and just hot in a weird way...
    cheezewiz: They should take their lace thongs off and play bass.

    I love the Silo Bass, and have one in Blue Dawn '07 LE. It's tuned A-a. I mostly play around with it, and only occasionally do I use it at gigs.

    Position 4 in parallel is probably my favorite out of the 10 choices.

    Is it the same switching as on the 25th guitar?

    Just checked out the Musicman site for the 25th guitar - looks the same: 5 way switch, series/parallel selector, volume, tone.

    In series mode they are the same.

    In parallel mode they compare as follows:


    Code:
             Silo Bass      25th
    Pos 1      Coil 1        1&2
    Pos 2      Coil 2        1&4
    Pos 3      Coil 3     1&2 & 3&4
    Pos 4       2&3          2&3
    Pos 5       1&4          3&4

    Can you change the strings on these from A to A over to E to E and back with a truss rod adjustment or more to it ? Any thing physically different from the factory models strung E to E vs those strung A to A ?
