Thread: Dream Bongo, just for fun

    Hey all, new member here. So I already have my dream bongo, BUT, if I could have just one more. I would definitely want a Bongo 4HH in the exact same specs as the April 2019 Hades Black Stingray. I would do whatever it took to obtain that.

    But for now, I just own one single bass. The BFR grabber green bong 6HH. And I love it more and more everytime I play it. Live or in the studio.

    I made another Mockup, this time the Scale Length/Neck Size is correct. the high e string is a 34" scale with the low b being 37".
    I really like the look of the Bongo with the Fanned Frets, Triple Bucker and Singlecoil, i also added the switch for the triple

    Now THAT is wild! Wow. Looks good. 37” on the low B would be interesting.

    I just had another Idea. What if the Fanned Fret Bongo BFR was a Neck Thru?
    Maybe add a Quilted Maple Top and a Transluscent Pickguard

    That would be cool to see! I would try it but that's beyond my photoshop skillz. From the front, the neck through part doesn't change the looks though, right? unless you're going to deepen the cutaway for easier access to higher frets.

    What’s got my attention the most is the Tripple Bucker/ Single, pickup configuration.

    Same here! Give a 5-way to control the triplebucker and a blend knob between it and the single and you’ve got a killer set of seemingly unlimited tones.

    Still pondering the ideal switching method but that sounds pretty cool. Being able to lock the bridge position into HH mode or H sweet spot then blending in a single on the neck to taste........ sounds pretty tasty to me

    I'm not sure about the clear Pickguard...
    But a Bongo with the Quilted Maple Top, 3Bucker+Singlecoil and Fanned Frets sure looks stunning!
    I hope if they ever make them, i can get a discount

    Catch 22 with the pick guard, clear shows the top off but the black sets it off beautifully!

    Triple single!
