    A little road trip/gig

    I almost never get to play electric bass. I gig all the time on upright bass and my rather large collection of electric basses stays at home.

    I got called to play a gig tomorrow night in Laredo. The music will be a mix of pop, jazz standards and soul music. I was playing several of my basses and considering which one would go to the gig. I decided this morning that my Bongo 5 will be the one. It does everything right and plays and sounds great. So, conservative Chuck will be playing a sparkly purple Bongo tomorrow in Laredo just a few miles from Mexico.

    Do I hear an Ole?

    Olé.
    Also, now are those new Bongos compared to the "old", you know 2003-2007:ish?
    bovinehost: Yes, I do agree with that, but if there's nothing wrong then there's nothing wrong.
    Beth: I would compare Bongo to Tommy Lee Jones. Bad a$$ and just hot in a weird way...
    cheezewiz: They should take their lace thongs off and play bass.

    I played the Bongo through my favorite amplification....a Pair of Aguilar GS 112's powered by an Aguilar AG 700. The Bongo has TI Flats....someone else I know loves them like I do. The tone was absolutely to die for or more like TO DIE FOR!!!!!

    What a fantastic bass. I had a ball playing my "grape" Bongo and made great money doing it.
