A Satin Honey Burst dual humbucking Honduran Mahogany body meets Honduran Mahogany neck with ebony fingerboard with this BFR Bongo 5. The neck is highlighted with matching satin-finished back and headstock to coordinate with the body color.

The Ball family is the last of a dying breed, a family business making premium guitars and basses on the California central coast since 1984. Sterling Ball, alongside his sons Brian and Scott, combine the laser precision of robotics and old-world hand craftsmanship to develop innovative instrument designs that push the boundaries of performance and playability.
