    Look here for a new bass. There are plenty of options, these guys ship fast, no credit/no interest payments if you need. Pay as you play.

    They get BFR's quickly. I've had nothing but good purchases from these guys. 3 EBMM basses.....

I was looking at add another Stringray to my gigging stable this year, but I'm not about to be go playing a purple glitter 'Ray with gold hardware. Can you imagine showing up to a rehearsal with something like that?

    I was thinking possibly this is all Covid-related - maybe MM is trying to clear out ugly hardware/paint inventory, or perhaps there has been a materials/labor shortage, and so they're assembling and shipping out what's left in the warehouse?

    Seriously, not even a single bass offered in the traditional black/chrome configuration, no natural finish, no good woodgrain finishes like the nice burnt amber, no charging green, etc.

    Anyone know if this is as good as is gets for 2021, and our only option is buying used?
    and yes 2.0 because im just about to order a hot pink bongo pretty soon unless there is a new model coming out like a sterling special or something new

    I have an Emerald Green Sparkle Bongo 5 and an Orange Crush Albert Lee HH guitar.

    I'm not scared of anything.

    Burnt ends is like the most awesome sb ever, just wow!
    Also, the frost green looks amazing.
    And while I'm more of a "look at me" kind of on stage person, I think the all black would work wonderfully if I was required to disappear into the background.

    I love eggs, chicken eggs mostly. With Kalles Kaviar. On knäckebröd.
    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.

    They already have. Eight of them. Or did you mean desireable to you personally? Then, reading the rest of your post, probably not.

    I was reading that ash wasn't used because of shortages a couple of years ago and was wondering if it is back . Or are the bodies from poplar ?

    The Ash Shortage is unlikely to abate anytime soon. TONS of usable ash have gotten EAB and were cut down, and then turned into wood chips. The wood can still be used but they need to decontaminate it, and the shear volume of it means that most of it just gets tossed.

    As far as I can see, the Cutlass is still Alder. The Steve Morse is poplar, and it's always been that. Most of the guitars mention a specific type.

    The basses do say "select hardwood", which I think used to be Ash on translucent colors, and alder or poplar on opaque colors. However that depends on the finish. Classic Sunburst is often put on Alder (like my Luke III). Also the Cliff Williams is poplar because the original was poplar. The Bongo basses are basswood, as they usually have been.

    I honestly wouldn't worry about the wood. EBMM uses good stuff, and Ash, Alder, and Poplar are all great tonewoods with a long history of use in solid bodied electric guitars. Poplar just sometimes has greenish streaks in it, which don't look good under some finishes. They look great on my morse blueburst guitar though!

    The Emerald Ash borer is making it's way towards where they usually harvest the Southern Swamp Ash from, so I don't know how much of an impact it has had yet on the wood EBMM usually uses, but it's going to get there eventually.
