Here we have the Bongo, a bold move by MusicMan in this world of JBs of every kind. Love the look, or not so much. This bass is all about growl and the management of growl. With EQ flat and the pickups centered, there is an definite aggressiveness begging to be released. The 4 band EQ and blend allow you to shape this bass’ voice in so many ways. Too confusing? Bass up, spend some time with this bass before you hit the stage or studio. Find your tone, learn the control layout, and take it from there.The power is here to dial in the sound you seek, and there are many to choose from with many colors to add to your palette. The weight is 9.3lbs. I have priced this bass for a quick sale, shop around and you will agree, this is a great prixe for a very nice bass – please, let’s not haggle on this one.
