    John Myung Sig Bass

    Hello all,
    Just saw a video on Premier Guitar, interview with J Petrucci and J Myung, talking about their rig.
    John Myung said that in 2020 his Bongo 6 will be available as a Signature Bass, so that is cool!
    Also, when he showed the bass it looked to have a rotary switch selector for the pickups…

    25th Anniversary BFR (#11 of 25)
    Bongo 6 (sterling silver / black PG)

    Guess that would depend if John has them on his Bongo or not since it is a signature model.

    He said it was a RAD idea, not a bad one. I've never had one, but whatever works. Plenty of guitars and basses have used rotary switches. A lot harder to knock it out of place, and maybe easier to tell where you are without looking.

    Yes, I agree.

    I know that John Myung currently uses Cobalt Rounds so IMO steel frets would be a better option than nickel frets, but I guess at this point only John and EBMM know what kind of frets he is actually using!

    Hoping that we see this new bass at the NAMM show in January!
    How cool would that be to see Mr. Myung at the EBMM booth?

    It might be a silly question (but seeing as I don’t know the answer it’s not at this point )
    Will this only be available as a 6 string ? Or are there plans to keep the same concept/signature features but scale it down to 4’s and 5’s ?

    I'm thinking this will only be a 6, since that's all John really plays, but who knows!

    It will be interesting to see how this works out. Granted there are a lot more 6 string players about today but still not that many

    I agree, since his bass actually has a 5 string neck, maybe they can make a 5 string. I would prefer a 5 string, because that's my main bass, but I would actually buy a 6 string if that's all they come out with!
