Please understand that Ernie Ball is the only guitar manufacturer to provide a “For Sale Or Trade” service. This service is also free of charge. It is expected that the rules are strictly adhered to by all posters who use this privilege.

The rules, set out below, have evolved over time at the collective request of fellow Forum members in an attempt to overcome issues that have arisen from time to time.

*Sellers, Buyers and Traders are to take full responsibility for their transactions. EB will not accept liability.

*Disputes will not be mediated nor resolved by EB or Moderators.


1) Before posting an advert you will need a posting history of at least 25 previous posts throughout the Forum over a period of at least one month. Most importantly, you must be a contributing member of good standing in the forum community. In borderline cases, Moderators will review your posting history and will remove your advert if they deem necessary. 'Serial posting' in an attempt to obtain 25 posts in a short period of time is not allowed.

2) Only EB/MM items may be advertised.

3) No advertising for a friend.

4) In the case of a sale, state the selling price.

5) Asking for payment by PayPal gift option is not allowed.

6) Do not link your post to any on-line auction (e.g. Ebay) or to any other media where you may have additionally placed your advert.

7) No comments please and if you need to compliment, ask/answer questions or negotiate then do so by private mail.

8) Posts will expire after a month but you are at liberty to re-post your advert after that time if you wish.

9) Please delete posts when transactions have been finalized.

Note: Failure to observe any of the above rules will result in automatic deletion of your post and, in some cases, the possibility of being either temporarily or permanently banned.

A very clean example from the golden era days, super clean, immaculate condition for being 26 years old, natural finish (yellowing with age) with nice grain in the ash, the rosewood board is reddish in hue also with a nice vertical grain.

Bongo 5 HH


I call this the Hot Wheels Bongo for obvious reasons. It began its adventures as a Stealth model but someone apparently needed more excitement. Underneath its gaudy exterior, it’s a great bass with all the usual Bongo stuff. 18v preamp, 4 band tone controls, etc.

I’m not sure this was a pro refinish. Up in the upper reaches of the neck, you can feel a little ‘tooth’ on the paint on the back. I assume with some wanky, show-off playing, this would smooth out like the vast majority of the neck. It’s not very noticeable but full disclosure and all that. I haven’t been man enough to pull the pickguard so you can ask what’s underneath it, but I don’t know. For 50 dollars, I’ll look.

Strung with Cobalt Flats and it records very well indeed. I do love that pan knob. Figure about 100 bucks for shipping, and I do have a hardshell case for it.
