    NBD: Bongo 5HH PDN 15 Vintage Tobacco Burst

    Hi Ya'll
    My First New Bass Day has come!
    After 290 Days 20 Hours and 17 Minutes my Bongo 5 Arrived this Morning. (Yes I did count the Days...)
    I don't know what to Say! I've been playing Bass until 6 Years ago or so, when my Band broke Up. Since then it's been mostly Guitar for me.
    However, I've always loved the Look and Sound of the Bongo since it came out, I just didn't like the Painted Neck.
    But now there was no Reason NOT to Buy one, when last Years PDN came along, so I quickly jumped on it.

    I know, I know, where are the Pictures?
    Here they are. They're just iPhone Pics for now. I'll update'em when I found my DSLR

    I guess I don't have to say that it sounds AWESOME!?!

    Man, I feel like a 12 Year Old on Christmas
    I really love the EQ and all the In Between Sounds with the Balance Knob. My little Combo doesn't do this Bass Justice.
    I'll get a proper Gallien Kruger or maybe even a Music Man Amp and play until my Fingers are bleeding

    Wow. Lookit that grain. It almost looks liquid, the way it curves around the upper & lower horns. Absolutely beautiful!
    It feels Amazing, the Way it Balances, and all the Curves are perfectly shaped ergonomically and visually.

    Just out of Curiosity, what's the Signal Chain of you other Bongo Believers?

    - A few "other" basses, all very nice but none threaten my Stingray's position as my #1
