    The matchstick method is a temporary, or band-aid solution. It will work to be sure, but not the best. A better method would be to drill out the old hole, plug the hole with a hardwood dowel, then...

    Yes. Contact Customer service. Though, if I had to guess, I would check the Battry -> Battery Box contacts. I could see a physical jolt breaking a connection if the battery isn't firmly pressing...

    One Bongo is strung with roundwounds. One Bongo is strung with Flats. They each have their character and feel. They both work well.

    Question is, even if you do leave one plugged in, how quickly will that kill batteries? This is a question worthy of an experiment.

    I would suspect even if you leave the bass plugged in, the...

    Roasted Maple - Suitable for fretless?

    I know the the discussion around having a maple fretless fingerboard has been done before. I believe the verdict in that case was that maple is just too soft to be suitable.

    However, now that...

    Or make your own. I did. A little paint-remover, some gentle scraping with a blade, and some light sanding, VOILA! Bare neck. The only really tricky part is making a nice clean line between the...

    My Bongo has both H's sounding similar. The bridge is brighter, more top end, while the neck is darker, muddier, more bass centric. But other than the slightly different voices, they are pretty...

    I have both. Never bothered me one way or the other. If in doubt, sandpaper is your friend. Remember, it's YOUR bass.

    Last I checked with Long & McQuade they wouldn't even return emails in regards to PDN questions. Does anyone else in Canada serve as a PDN?
