    I'll start with these two



    Honey Roasted Bongo 5HHp, BFR SR5 Honeyburst w/roasted neck

    I played at a new venue on Saturday that was all acoustic. I had never played my acoustic bass in a group setting on stage so I took my Bongo as a back-up. I didn't get to play it but I showed it to one of the other bass players who has an SR5 and now he has massive GAS.

    That roasted neck on the SR5 is also excellent.

    I think this one will stay, but then I'm such a slut...

    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.

    Hellboy that SR5 20th special is phenominal - is that the twin of Tony Levin's H one?

    Keko...........I think you would be mad to sell the Keko signature bass (white Reflex) - you must be famous the world over for that bass from forums!! Fantastic photos - make my iPhone ones look shameful in comparison!!

    This one is my number one, and always will be. Bought sight-unseen from MF in Early 2003, I think. I bought it shortly after I married Paula. It plays better than any bass I have ever touched, and I've touched a lot of them. I've played it in bar bands, at times where it looked convincingly like I might actually get to be a professional bass player; and again after realizing that it's making music that matters, not where you make it. Paula had a picture of my baby son made with this bass for my first Father's Day, because she knew it was the one I played the most. This Bongo is part of me.



    I can barely play it, but this one isn't going anywhere, either. It's a MusicMan Luke in Black Sparkle, for those of you keeping score at home. I talked a buddy into buying it off eBay years ago, and he never fell in love with it. After several years, I felt bad for talking him into a guitar he didn't like, and bought it from him. Turns out, the former owner had stuck an EMG 81 ceramic pickup in the bridge instead of the EMG 85 AlNiCo it was supposed to have. I remedied that with a new set of EMG X pickups, and every guitar player I trust tells me it is fantastic instrument. Also, I got Luke to sign it. So it isn't going anywhere.


    And lastly (I really am working on losing those chins,) My Sapphire Black Bongo 5HH is a total keeper. I love it dearly. I called Derek at EBMM and told him I needed a Bongo 5HH for my new band, and didn't care what color it was. A few days (and one credit card transaction) later, this baby showed up. I would take this bass anywhere to any gig. Period. It's that good. God, I love Bongos. I thank Sterling and Dudley every time I pick one up for sticking with it and making it happen.
