Offered for sale; 2007 Music Man Bongo bass serial number F18544. This Bongo is in very good condition, fully functional. There is one finish crack from the bridge to the back strap button and two finish cracks by lower left screw on neck plate. There are some “marks & nicks” about the body.

Designed by Music Man president Sterling Ball and the company's R&D department, the Bongo is a looker. BMW Designworks was largely responsible for the instrument's clean lines and stunning, unconventional good looks. Featuring a lightweight, resonant, basswood body with generous double cutaways, fast-playing maple neck with a rosewood fingerboard and 24 wide, high-profile frets with a 34” scale length. Humbucking pickups with neodymium magnets, 18 volt active preamp with 3-band EQ, 5-bolt neck attachment, sculpted neck joint, adjustable truss rod - no component or string removal required, body cavity and aluminum control cover coated with graphite acrylic resin for superior shielding

Musicians across a wide range of musical genres have played Music Man guitars and basses over the years including Steve Morse, Albert Lee, Tony Levin, John Petrucci, Steve Lukather, Flea, Dave LaRue, John Myung, and countless others.

This Bongo finished in Stealth Black has a nut width of 1 ¾” and weighs in at 8.8 lbs. This is an instrument with a very broad range of tonal capabilities and the same time it is very comfortable to play; versatile is somewhat of an understatement.

Great bass, great price!

Original hard shell case included.


***Please note: we do our best giving descriptions of used pieces. We have found it impossible to describe every mark on an instrument or amp that is not in the "mint" category. Also, what's important to you may not be important to someone else. For example, you may say, "I don't care what it looks like as long as it plays or sounds well." Another person may say, "Body cosmetics are very important to me so tell me about every scratch, nick and blemish." So, please ask the questions that are most important to you. If you ask they will be answered. They are free and there's no limit. Additional photos can also be made available.
***This is a specific item that is also being offered for sale in our brick & mortar location. It is possible that it has just been sold. Please ask if it is still available before purchasing.
***It is our policy to require a signature on delivery of all musical instruments. Please let us know if you prefer no signature required when ordering or we will automatically require a signature.
