Thread: Dream Bongo, just for fun

    Just a curious question, is the bongo bodyshape patented or registered as a trademark? I've been thinking about just building a new Body for my Bongo and at least try the 3Bucker + Singlecoil. But i obviously don't wanna start to mill large Pickup cavities into my orignal Bongo.
    Would be a cool Project if you could get a cheap used Bongo, but even new ones are fairly rare in europe...

    Just for testing and, my favorite phrase, just for fun I don’t think it matters. As long as you don’t try to sell it that way...but even then it’s not new. I should have been a lawyer. Hahaha

    Do it! All of us would love to see/hear it. What would you use as your "triblebucker"?

    that's what i've been thinking about the whole day i don't know.
    Bongo Pickups aren't available to just buy, like any other pickup. guess i'll still have to get a used bongo 5hh and mod it

    Have you ever made any instruments before? Or bodies? I wanted to build a SR5 body to replace my heavy stock body, but it sounds so good now I gave up on that venture. I would think that producing a Bongo body would be very difficult.

    The pickup venture seems even harder...even with unlimited funds. Maybe I’m over complicating. I’m pulling for you though, Dave.

    I've built 7 Guitars and 2 Basses so far. Two of the Guitars were even Neck Thru's. So i got all the Tools and stuff i need for that. The only way i see for the electronics is to either get a used bongo (preferably one with an unfinished neck) and mod it with a new body, or try to get custom wound pickups, which might get quite expensive aswell, especially getting them to the right specs
