    I've not paid attention to EVERY one of them, but seems more the norm than the exception.

    Hoping the early photos were just that...early photos.
    It's possible that the neck plate may say something, my Blue Dawn says "Limited Edition" and my BFR rosewood says "Custom Made" etched into the metal. The BFR (which I bought new) also came with a certificate of authenticity, the Blue Dawn was used with no cert but it did have a special case w/data plate.

    The 2005 Buttercream and the original Dargies had a printed "logo" right behind the neck plate.
    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.

    Good enough for me Pops, one look at one of these instruments and you will instantly know that it's a badass Music Man machine, 'nuff said. I will be placing my order today ASAP.

    That looks great! The ebony board looks perfect with that color.

    As good as that SR looks I think the Bongo is going to be the star of the Dargie's on the bass side due the curvaceousness and the color shiftiness that will result from that. If you're a SR player and you've thought about getting a Bongo in the past, now might be the time to get one that you'll keep for the rest of your life. My order was placed at 11:30 today- sweet caramel apple!

    I think I'm in the same boat.

    Also, I suspect I'd have to win the lottery or something. Maybe I'm even safer than you - plus, I have three green basses.

    But....none of them color shift.

    No.

    That way lies madness.
