    congrats!

    i am so happy you liked it

    MrM

    ps: oil the fingerboard like you would on any rosewood boards. the neck probably should get the same treatment as other eb necks.. oil and wax
    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

    Better than I could have hoped really.
    The neck is like glass!! unreal smooth and super fasssssst!!
    The bass feels a good amount lighter than the Dargie HS stingray...????
    I have them both on a 5 bass stand right now with a few others...
    When I pick up each of the 2 stingrays, there is a very noticeable difference in the weight.
    Would have thought it would be heavier? HUH? ODD?
    No complaints, lighter is good...lol
    The tone is a bit different...maybe resonates a bit more than the maple necked rays.
    The look of it is just flat out crazy beeeeautiful, that is for SURE!!

    This one is a keeper for life...
    Sorry guys, I know 3 wanted dibs on it, if I sold it....not happenin

    I am thinking maybe put in my will, I want a rosewood coffin/Ice Blue lining/blue swirl pillow...... and want this baby put in box with me...hahahah!!

    Haha, that's great to hear man, I'm really stoked for you! May you live happily together ever after! That's exactly the way a new bass should feel.

    Yeah yeah, we've all said THAT
    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.

    Ok your #1 dibs spot will stand, just in case

    Hey does your Egyptian Smoke Bongo have the Python pickguard?
    I am thinking about grabbing a mint Bongo fretless in that color with that pickguard...it is a lined fretless HS4.
    Beautiful fretless and color combo.... packing some of that 18V ooooomph~...good combo!

    Yes it does... great color and fits in with the other green basses... the feel of that RW neck is beyond belief though.

    Yea the Egyptian smoke looks like it is a really "warm" grayish with light metalic pearl in it.
    Looks great with the Pau ferro warm tone fretless board. In Pics at least.
    I think I HAVE to MAKE myself grab this Bongo lined fretless HS4....
    They just do not pop up hardly EVER anywhere.
    I sold off two fretless basses in the past 6 months or so...
    Really miss one hanging around....They are a blast to sit and mess around with!

    And for sure the RW neck is beyond compare!
    Either I am going nuts? OR, this RW neck feels a bit thinner than the Maple necks on my other Stingrays?
    And for sure this bass is lighter than my other Rays.

    Just added rosewood neck BFR bass number two to the stable.
    Grabbed this mint True Gold HH4 BFR Bongo to keep the Ice Blue BFR rosewood stingray company
