  4. The new limited edition (72 worldwide) BFR Bongo 5 HH. Boasting a resonant Swamp ash body and eye-popping roasted flamed maple neck, the Ernie Ball Music Man Bongo 5 HH BFR is a beautifully balanced 5-string electric bass. The Bongo bass has been embraced by top bassists, such as John Myung and Dave LaRue, and it's easy to see why. A generous double-cutaway design gives you effortless access to the upper register, while two powerful humbuckers with neodymium magnets deliver boatloads of beefy tone. An onboard 18-volt preamp with a 4-band EQ completes the Ernie Ball Music Man Bongo 5 HH BFR, delivering an extremely wide array of tones.

A Ball Family Reserve instrument

Like all Ball Family Reserve (BFR) instruments, the Bongo 5 HH BFR is a supreme expression of the luthier's art. It's superbly balanced, and thanks to its sculpted basswood body, it's supremely comfortable and lightweight — perfect for marathon gigs and sessions. This bass gives you the ultimate in playability, while a duo of neodymium-loaded humbuckers serves up a massive tone arsenal. Add to that the Bongo 5 HH BFR's roasted flamed maple neck, rosewood fingerboard, and 24 jumbo frets, and you've got one eye-catching, easy-playing machine.

Dual Neodymium Pickups & Powerful Preamp

The Bongo Bass HH is equipped with unique Dual Humbucking Neodymium pickups, which offer a greater output voltage than the more common humbuckers. The Neodymium Humbuckers produce incredibly bright tones with plenty of precision which is what makes them perfect for bass pickups. The strong magnets in the pickups make them powerful, whilst still producing the tight, clean bass sounds loaded with harmonics. Featuring a 4-band active preamp, the Bongo's electronics offer the classic bass tones, with access to lots of varied sound for the ultimate performance.

Maple Neck Coupled With Ebony Fingerboard

Manufactured with a select maple neck, players can achieve an incredibly comfortable and smooth feel when navigating the fingerboard. The maple neck produces bright tones with excellent clarity, and is paired with an ebony fingerboard, for sharp and defined tones.

Double Cutaway Basswood Body

The Bongo 4 is crafted with an all basswood body, which produces fat, yet balanced tones with excellent dynamics and tone definition. The basswood body is lightweight, while the double cutaway offers easy access to the higher frets for a comfortable playing experience.
