Very good
tiktik_tiktik, 22.09.2013
How to say. Here is the sound that suits me.
I bought a Fender Jazz Bass 5 USA on a whim and without trying before, and I was disappointed with the sound.
In fact, it was by trying a Stingray and having this Bongo that I really realized the sound that suited me.
This bass has a big sound, rather modern. Tried for now on a MarkBass and it sends hard.
The ebony key is very beautiful, the black satin (on all bass) very class. The very soft and qualitative potentiometers allow real change of sound, they are very effective. Volume / Balance pickups / (Double for Medium low / Medium high) / (Double for Serious / Acute).
It is a 24 boxes, acute access is no problem.
For the look, it's just a matter of taste, each one his own.

Bongo 5 HH SBK ... low standard !!
Cyril1133, 05.07.2016
Sound side: Magic bass with a powerful sound (super-powerful even!). Acute, medium and serious powerful, clear, precise ... ranging from round to slamming according to microphone settings. Speaking of the pickups ... the 2 double windings make a superb birch! Flexible versatility!
Bass clearly typed rock, but would be very comfortable in other styles ..
Side design: there is a question of taste, because it is really unique..but I love this body and head !! And the Stealth Black finish is to die for!
Technical side: very good mechanical engineering! Aluminum knobs very nice and accurate! Weight of the beast very correct: slightly lower than my Fender JB 5 Am.Deluxe

In conclusion: A beautiful bass on all the plans.
