    Well it's a matter of personal preference. I am just saying if they had one standard neutral colour for the bongo like black or a subtle sunburst, they could go really wild with the other colour...

    My new Bongo bass

    Just acquired a new Bongo bass!

    First impressions are that it is really comfortable and light to hold, a whole more cuddly than other basses I have tried - MMs and other brands.

    I would...

    The one I was interested in was second hand and the price differential between that and a normal one was considerably more. But I guess this 'might' prove that BFR instruments are specially sought...
  4. Which guitar company is going to break the mold - sales-wise?

    I'd assume that with Covid, many more people have got used to ordering guitars, unseen, over the net.

    I a not sure what the retailer's mark up is, but it must be considerable.

    Whilst there may...

    Sorry I did not mean to cause offence. To be fair to the salesman he did stress that all their guitars were carefully made, it's just that he compared BFR to an elite custom shop.

    Thank you. The salesman told me that also they were assembled by their finest, specially chosen craftspeople. Do you know if this is true?

    How is the BFR different?

    Apologies if this has been asked before.

    I ask this in the context of being interested in a Bongo Ball family reserve. Although it looks stunning it has quite a premium attached to it's price, and...

    Thank you. I don't think a how to video of how to change strings on an EBMM guitar(using Ernie Ball strings) would cost much more than one of their high end guitars. Even with a professional lighting...

    I agree, the neck's vital. But I was asking about vital components that could easily be junked/recycled, if they were blocking overall playability and sound.

  14. For you, what is the killer component part on a bass?

    Looking at replaceable items like tuners, bridges, pick ups or even colour; what is the most important part a guitar for individual members?

    For me, I think it is the bridge. 1. Because it is...

    Thanks for the replies. I was certainly influenced into buying a silo special because Stones used them on tour. I figured if it was good enough for Richards to play in front of 50,000 crowds it was...

    Apologies but my question is why you want to return it to it's original condition?,

    Maybe you could look at your current collection and consider whether there are any you don't need, i.e. use regularly, to come up with a possible trade in against a cutlass.
