    Bongo 5 With Regular Inlays

    Hi folks,

    I recently bought a Bongo 5 HS, but only after a while I noticed it has regular dot inlays, not the standard half moon ones...

    Are there any Bongo fivers that come with that feature from the factory?

    Thanks a lot.

    Many of the BFR and PDN Bongos have regular dot inlays. Do you have a picture you can share?

    Some leave the factory this way... (don't know why).

    Very strange. Can’t say I’ve ever seen that before. If you haven’t already put your serial number through the data base here.

    That will give you more information.

    This bass originally went out to a Music Man Artist. Sometimes the artist instruments get small changes like this.

    Maybe, but many of the other Egyptian Smoke bongos i've seen (including the one i have right here with me, F14720) had dots, too. Was that a limited/special run?
