    Family Photo

    I haven't been around this forum too long, and I've only started a couple of threads here in the bass forum. You may have remembered a within the last few months when I had issues with the neck on my DD3 SR and then I needed some advice on getting the neck of my Bongo 6 back in shape after I got it in return for a trade.

    Everything is all good now, and here's a family pic of my current MM basses:

    Bongo 6 Egyptian Smoke (2009)

    I love those both too! That purple looking one on the couch in the middle is the newest addition which is the color shifting 'plumpkin' finish. Here is a good picture I took of it going from plum to pumpkin:

    Yeah, the Plumpkin is such a cool finish, and the photos I took and the stock ones on the website really don't do it justice. I hope they start doing some more finishes like that. An SR5 would be cool in that finish. Or even better, how about a Bongo or Big Al (one can dream, right)? One suggestion that I would have if they do more colour shifting finishes, is to upload a gif showing the shift in colour as opposed to just photos.

    That is a quite impressive family photo! I see you grabbed a few BFR basses, as well as the cool Plumpkin Stingray from the vault. I was looking at that one yesterday. It says the SLO neck profile is slimmer and shallower than the standard neck profile. I love the feel of a 4 string with a very slim neck.

    I just became an EBMM owner in August 2020, and after I got my first, I decided to get a BFR bass too. It's just stunning.

    Congrats! Which BFR bass did you end up getting?

    Last month I got the September 2020 satin honey burst BFR Bongo.
    My first, which I got in August, is a fretless Bongo. Then a month later when the BFR satin honey burst Bongo came out, I was persuaded to get a fretted one too. It's a very unique and visually stunning bass.

    Procrastinating for months to take a family photo and end up taking a bad photo.
    No marks for photography skills but nice photo non the less.
    Still. The frame looks a little empty. Have to work on that !

    Wow! Fabulous family you've got there! That 'plumkin' is an amazing finish, and I really dig the copperish glitter next to it.
    Side note, the moose sheet is very cool! And is that a bit of 'protective' foil on the sofa leg?
    Balls are Best!!
