The Music Man Bongo Bass is a unique electric bass guitar with some of the most powerful pickups ever. Loaded with dual Neodymium Humbucking pickups, the Bongo 4 delivers an incredibly high output and with plenty of precision. The Bongo features a 4 Band Active Preamp giving you access to more varied sounds. Crafted in the USA to the highest standards, the Music Man Bongo  features an all basswood body, coupled with a maple neck and Rosewood fingerboard for bright and clear sounds.

Neodymium Pickup & Powerful Preamp

The Bongo Bass is equipped with a unique Humbucking Neodymium pickup, 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 Rosewood 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 Rosewood fingerboard, for clear and defined tones.

Double Cutaway Basswood Body

The Bongo  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.
