    I considered the 5'er again... but ultimately am going to decide against it. Oh my is right though..... Ebony fretless is taaaassssty. 5HHp or 4HSp they will still both be works of art! Cheers! I'm stoked.

    Although the Big Al is tempting like Eve... but I'm currently more drawn towards...

    Bongo 4 HSP Fretless unlined... that ebony board just calls for a FL

    I hope I can make my mind up until the ordering window is closed.

    Not quite--that's a 5Hp. Is it going to be fretted, or fretless?

    I ordered a 5 Hp so it's really cool to see what it looks like super naked. Very nice, pic #3 is totally doing it for me.

    Missed that! I was wondering what those extra holes were for!

    Hey what's the fate of that sample body? If it doesn't make it into production I sure wouldn't mind having that for my Bongo Museum that my mancave is slowly turning into (see sig). I promise that the Ball family and all confirmed Bongoloids would always have free admission when I start charging . If it helps, I'm pretty sure I'm going to buy two DD 2's before the order period is up!

    It will probably be turned into a prototype.

    Heh, I just noticed this...

    A naked body on a stick doesn't count!

    If I had known about the Dargie II Electric Boogaloo before I booked my trip to Amsterdam, it would already be on order. But, I'm probably not going to be able to justify the expenditure before the ordering window closes.

    It wouldn't be the first time I did something stupid, though....

    My guess is that they were running out of time to take photos before NAMM this weekend, and Scott simply wanted to torture...well....me. I'm sure it is now a full Bongo that someone will take pictures of at the show this weekend.


    Not that I blame you for trying.

    order it now, you will have some months to save up

    MrM
    flats for the bongo!
    roundwounds for the fretless!

    eb customer support:
    E-mail: musicman_customerservice@ernieball.com
    Telephone: +1 866-823-2255

    trussrod adjustment:
    Click here for an image!
    less relief / flatter = lower action
    more relief / bow = higher action
    do NOT use cheap tools to adjust with. they break and scrape up your bass!

    if you have a 100th namm sr4: the truss works the other way around on those!

    i have no affiliation with eb other than i love their basses
