    Dig the edits! What if we threw in a 4th coil? EBMM's answer to the MTD Super, lol.

    I thought about that....a Quadbucker. Seems like a wonderful idea to me. I’ll do a mock-up.

    Maybe not a quadbucker..but 2 normal Bongo humbuckers side by side:

    The quadbucker thing is a little weird in that you have no height adjustment independence across 4 coils:

    EDIT: Here's a higher contrast version of the Triplebucker BFR...it's a little easier to see everything:

    Reading back through theses, I’m starting to expect some Spinal Tap 4x humbuckers

    But seriously, the triple bucker to be able to go between H and HH set to back sounds interesting and usable to me

    I thought about a “Mr Horsepower” Bongo for laughs... May still attempt it.

    Can you do a edit of a 6-string with the triple bucker?

    I can try. Which 6 string Bongo base picture do you want me to start with? I won’t be able to until Thursday but I should be able to.

    What about a Fanned Fret Bongo with that Triplebucker and a Singlecoil somewhat like a Dingwall Afterburner?

    But this would be a hell of a lot more usable. (Might pass on the fanned fret though )

    Here are two mockups i made Triplebucker plus Singlecoil and a rough mockup of fanned frets.
    The Bridge on the Fanned Fret Bongo would have to be angled aswell, i just didn't know how to make that look good, so i kept it straight
    I'd love to know how that Pickup Combo actually sounds!

    The original was low-rez, but here's a quick attempt at the Triplebucker and a 5-way switch:

    The Triplebucker plus a neck single is the obvious next place to go for me. I'd love to put it in the spot that the Bongo HH neck pickup bottom or bridge facing coil is in. I'd never use it solo'd but would love to be able to dial in a little to taste. In that config, it would be cool to have the 5-way for the Triplebucker, and still have a blend knob for the Triple & Single:

    EDIT: Just because I saved it this way while working on the other mockup, here's the Triplebucker w/ 5-way plus a neck humbucker in the standard position(only a step away from being Mr Horsepower, AKA as many humbuckers as can fit between bridge and truss rod wheel ):

    The fanned fret bongo, WHOA, that looks super cool. That triplebucker 6'er, hubba hubba. I love the absurdity of the last picture, it looks like something Bootsy Collins would play, lol.

    Triple bucker and single, really into the idea of that and even though I’m not a fan of the fanned fret it looks great in the mock ups, really suits the whole Bongo style........
    Definitely on to something here
