    It maybe fretless.

    Did you ever play a Bongo H? You will be surprised (in a positive way) how different (not better!) it is from a Bongo HH.

    Good choice.

    A 5-string extends the low (bass) range while a 6 string extends the upper register. Plus, the C string is very thin and reminds me of a guitar string.

    A Bongo H sounds completely different than a Bongo HH (or maybe HS). The locations of the humbuckers are different - thus making the basses soundwise very distinct.

    Good to hear that its color is an intense orange. On some photos (in other threads) the color looked too washed out like apricot/peach.

    Very nice bass.
