    It is that same model but not that exact bass. The neck on my bass is bird's eye maple rather than flame although there is some flame in it also. Purple, ain't it?

    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 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.
