    Bongo 5HH BFR - How many were made?

    I own a Bongo 5HH BFR all rosewood neck from March 2009. Is there any chance to find out, how many were made of this run?

    Historically EBMM do not give out production numbers, with very few exceptions, so I think chances are slim.
    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.

    No unfortunately. I have asked similar questions in the past.
    Production numbers are top secret

    StingRay 4H. Buttercreme. 2005
    StingRay 4H. ”SunBlue”. 2005
    Bongo 4H. Sapphire Black. 2005

    I ask because it is probably no longer a secret today. The number of BFR basses and guitars is given on the homepage today. Klick
    Look at the Stingray: "Limited to 89 pieces worldwide"...

    In the past they have had limited runs that the numbers were announced but in general practice they haven’t given production numbers.
    I have a 2010 BFR Stingray5HH that I got from Guitar Center. I believe they did a special run of those for GC back then and I don’t think they gave production numbers.
