    I already have a black Bongo 6 HH. This is my second one.
  5. Bongo 5 HH coming to me. It is Jack's fault!

    I find that it is difficult to make my Bongo sound bad unless I really crank on the EQ. I also found it is very easy to go from sounding great to sounding magnificent with that 4 band EQ.

    I have Cobalt rounds on my Bongo 6 and there is very little wear to the frets. Do you play a lot slap style? I am a fingerstyle only player.

    I got mine used off Reverb for a good price but didn't save much over the cost of a new one. Sweetwater had some gloss black ones in stock the last time I looked.

    Good luck with your hunt.

    Wait! It is an Ernie Ball beatle bass! Oh, you said beetle.

    Ernie Ball production and inspection quality is so high that I have never needed the much touted great service.

    The fingerboard on one of my upright basses has a lovely light streak in it. I consider it a plus although some don't. I adore figured wood of all species.

    I played the Bongo with the Cobalt Slinky's at my church gig yesterday. Sounded fantastic. The strings are losing the sticky feel. I wiped them down with a micro fiber cloth and that helped a lot.
