    Many have come and gone. These two stay.

    First run DD Bongo 4HP (yes, the only one made). It's staying because it has an interesting story involving VBTC.

    07 LE Blue Dawn SR 4HP. Reasonably light, sounds and plays good.

    My first EBMM, a 1992 Stingray, bought from new. Like many basses from those years, it has a wonderful neck and sounds great. Plus too many gigs/memories to part with it!

    I currently have 5 EBMM basses. 4 Bongos and the Breast Cancer Awareness bass. All 5 are keepers. The Bongo's are all limited runs except for 1. The PDN Bongo 4 HHp was the only one made in that configuration and is quickly becoming my favorite Bongo. The Bongo 4 H BFR roasted neck only had I think 4 made in that configuration and I absolutely love that bass too. Especially the roasted neck on it as well. With the Bongo 4 HH DDII, I know it was also a rare one but am not sure how many were made like it? I know it does have at least one twin though. The last one is my candy apple red Bongo 4 Hp. When I ordered it, I was fortunate enough to get an abalone pickguard ordered with it too. AJ was kind enough to spot one left over so my bass got it added to it and the abalone just totally makes that bass. All of those basses will only be sold if an emergency happened and I needed the money. The last one is the Stingray Classic, Breast Cancer Awareness bass. That one is not just a keeper but it will be generational bass kept in our family long after I am gone. This marks the 3 year that my wife is a breast cancer survivor and it also marks 3 years since BP was kind enough to build the bass for us. In fact, because this month is breast cancer awareness month, the Breast Cancer Awareness bass is being used exclusively all this month any time I play.

    Here are the picks of all of my babies!

    Family shot!

    My first (and not the last I hope ) MM - nothing special, very heavy. But every time I pass through it I stop mesmerized by it's body wood texture. And it sounds just amazing and powerfull when unplugged. That is an oddity but often I like to play basses unplugged at home

    I let three other BFR Rosewood's slip through my GAS stained hands but having the incredible fortune of finding this as a NOS that was lost in inventory for four years, I am deeming this an absolute keeper.

    Forgive the n00bie-ness, but I keep seeing this term "Dargie" pop up on the forums and I gotta know! What's a "Dargie"? Is that a reference to the color?

    Yes, it's that odd green color, with the martini glass
    FB inlays. A Dargie Stage II is a green-to-gold color
    shifting finish. Dargie/Dargin is the 'Green Sheep' of
    the Ball family. BP has correctly observed that green
    basses, as a rule, do not sell well as part of regular
    production models. They are "special", like Dargin :-)
