    I have a Bongo 6 HH. The first Sunday I played it in church I got lots of comments about how great it sounds. They never say anything to me about the bass but always do when I play the Bongo 6.

    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 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.
