Ernie Ball Music Man Bongo 5 HH – Harvest Orange

Serial Number: F98501
Weight: 8 lbs 13 oz

So you remember that band Oingo Bongo? They never used one of these.

But you should. And they would have if if they could have.

Pop culture history revisionism brought to you by Eddies….

And yes we know it’s Boingo.

The Bongo 5 represents everything a modern bass should be: well balanced, comfortable, resonant, and expressive with effortless playability. The double-cutaway basswood body design is of superior construction and along with a 24 fret finished neck offers unimpeded access for high register two-octave fretwork. The Bongo 5 is available with two Ernie Ball Music Man proprietary humbucking pickups, 4 band eq, Neodymium magnets, and 18V active preamp that delivers a powerful combination of unparalleled tonal diversity. We’re now offering the Bongo 5 in the all-new Harvest Orange finish.
