    I believe I noticed during one angle that the back of the neck was even painted black. I love the look of this bass !!!

    Nice bass, and good exposure for ebmm on tv. I saw a few minutes of one of those shows (maybe it was The Voice?) and the house band guitarist was playing an Albert Lee. I was pretty excited to see one in action on tv.

    He apparently owns several Bongos. I wouldn't be surprised if owned at least 5 of them. If I had his cash I would too He was a killer bassist back in the day. Check out his work with Jean Luc Ponty, especially the song Rhythm Of Hope

    I've seen numerous pics of Randy on Instagram with Bongos. I think the Bongo infection is quickly spreading!

    Is this maple fretboard finished, or unfinished?

    Just curious.

    When you have money and fame you can make pretty much anything happen.

    If I read a recent interview correctly, I think John Myung uses Bongos made of ash.
