    Emerald Green Sparkle Gets a Day Out

    Played a benefit this weekend with my old buddies from coWpilot.Emerald Green Sparkle Gets a Day Out-mk5k2018b-jpgseld

    The seldom-seen sparkly green Bongo saw the light of day for the first time in a good while.

    Great bass.

    Speaking of green, I know Big Poppa will be relieved to hear that Heinz the Wonder Bass is back in my clutches once again!

    Heinz has been with Strummer in Sweden for some years. I'm glad to have him back but he has a funny accent and wants to eat weird food.

    What can I say, Heinz got homesick
    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.

    That is a really nice green. Not a huge fan of sparkles but that I like.
    What’s the sticker on it ? It’s under a clear pick guard if I’m correct?

    Ir's over the clear guard and it's the fish from the Church of The Flying Spaghetti Monster.

    Heinz! The emerald green sparkle Bongo is a looker, but Heinz stands alone. I've been searching for a trans green Stingray for years because of that bass.

    Would visions of a Heinz colored Bongo in single H (with a pearloid guard) be too unreasonable? Probably, but wouldn't it be amazing?

    Dargin might pretend to entertain it because he's nice, but my favorite BP quote is from one night long ago on the phone, me and BP and Dargin discussing something important when Heinz came up for some reason.

    "I think that's the ugliest finish we ever did", he said. Then he laughed because he knows I love Heinz.
