    I cannot remember how many now, but few have passed through my hands, a Silhouette, a couple of Sterlings, a Bongo and some Stingrays.

    A kinder, gentler collection...

    I have a DD 'Ray4 HH, Don't know the number of previous owners, but I bought it from Mike (Caca de Cick).



    I have never seen another Dargie in Europe, and no Oli, Switzerland is not part of Europe as far as I am concerned

    If y'all have some extra time go back in the forum and read posts from July 06 through the end of the year concerning the Dargie saga as it unfolded. It's interesting to see how some of the people who were really excited about their Dargies no longer have them, shows how much things can change in two or three years. Here's a recap of the bass numbers as posted by Dargin himself:
    Stinrgay 4 H - 25
    Stingray 4 HH - 21
    Stingray 4 HS - 17
    Stingray 4 2 band - 3
    Bongo 4 H - 4
    Bongo 4 HP - 1
    Bongo 4 HH - 13
    Bongo 4 HS - 5
    Stingray 5 H - 15
    Stingray 5 HH - 23
    Stingray 5 HS - 15
    Bongo 5 H - 2
    Bongo 5 HH - 4
    Bongo 5 HS - 3
    Bongo 5 HSP - 3
    Sterling H - 13
    Sterling HP - 1
    Sterling HH - 15
    Sterling HS - 15
    Sterling lefty (chuck ward) -1
    Stingray Lefty H - 2
    Bongo Lefty HH - 2

    Looks like a lot of Stingrays and SR5's were produced in DD while some Bongo models only one or two (or three)
    My EBMM Bongo's:

    Dargie II 5Hp
    Dargie Delight 5HS
    Stealth Ebony 5HH

    I wasn't in a position to buy one when they first came out, and then when Biker4Him was selling I jumped on it, wanting a Dargie soo bad. And If it had been a H or HH I would still have it, make no mistakes. I just don't like the HS all that much, too much finesse for me perhaps...
    Anyway, cool that you managed to coax a trade out of Jack, I know how difficult he can be
    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 loved the colour, and still do. At the time, I had a Rolls Bongo 4HH and so ordered the Dargie 4HS so I'd have a different pup config. At the time my main gigs were in a hair band tribute show and a blues band, and the HS didn't have the double barrelled sound that the HH provided. Since then I've added a Grease/Saturday Night Fever tribute show and a Stones tribute band to my roster, and in trying to rationalise the herd so that all my basses will get gig time, the Dargie was one of the basses who became a square peg.

    On a positive note, the Dargie Bongo 4HS has been replaced with a buttercream Bongo 4HH, which is a "traditional" enough colour to get regular gig time with me.
    Cheers

    That is why it's an addiction The dream bass is always the next limited run.

    I played the heck out of my DD for a while. It even sailed halfway around the world with me. But it's been superceded by my 07LE which is a great player. If not for my DD's interesting history I probably would've cashed in on its 1 of 1 status and flipped it for something else.

    Hey Guys...

    My first post here. It looks like I'm joining the DD ranks with my purchase of a used SR4 H from Tommixx @ talkbass. I owned an SR4 in the early 80's and I recently played one at GC and it felt/sounded great as I remember.

    It's just a bonus with the color and the martini inlays. My bands name is Cocktail Joe and our logo is green.

    Anyway, glad to be here after a long hiatus in MM land.

    I bought his Stingray 5H DD in the summer of 2007. Still have it, love it, and play it.

    Congratulation Psycho, so much beauty in just one pic, the bass, the house, the garden, the chairs even the pebbles and the grass. Stunning. Even the right way round its still beautiful
