    Well I'm coming back into the fold...Bongo 5 PDN

    I had sold my last BALL about a year ago...so I was not spending much time over here. Well this came available and I couldn't let it go. Got a killer deal too!

    Thanks guys. The bass will be here Wednesday, and I will hopefully bring it to rehearsal that night.

    Nice. Already flipping for a profit, I see. Still a decent price, though.

    I am actually in the fence with this one. I have to admit that I am loving the light weight at 9 lbs, and the action and feel are top notch. I only put it out there to see if I'd get any interest. I'm not sure if I'd let her go. I already got offers of a '77 SR in very good condition, and a '96 SR5 fretless.
