This is a 2012 Musicman Bongo PDN (Premier Dealer Network). What makes this special compared to a regular bongo is the oil/wax finished neck and Alder body. Most bongos of course have the painted neck, rosewood board and basswood bodies. There are also PDN bongos in Neptune Blue with Mahogany bodies.These Alder burst ones seem to be a little harder to find, I haven't seen another like this. The bass is absolutely minty. There are 2 things I pointed out, a very very small ding on the back, super small. Also a little scuff on the headstock which could likely be cleaned off. The bass is a easy 9/10 condition wise. It is totally stock, the neck is straight with great fret work, no buzz at all.Great professional set up with Fresh Chrome Flatwounds. The neck has some really nice rolled edges and the maple used on this make the Bongo feel more organic, more like a Stingray. The painted neck models always felt odd to me. Not sure how many of these were made, but it wasn't much. New price was around $2200 I believe. Controls-4-band active preamp; vol, bridge/neck pickup balance, treble, high-mid, low-mid, bass, 4-band active preamp; vol, bridge/neck pickup balance.
The case is in excellent condition as well. I am not looking for any trades currently.
