Got this today. Traded an Ibanez Artcore custom for it.
Sounds amazing. Takes two 9-volts. My first active bass and my first Music Man instrument. This bass was designed by BMW's art and design dept.

looks like a parker fly and an old vox guitar had a baby....sort of....it looks nice though, i've never seen one like it.

Congrats! They do sound great, although I don't care for basses with curved tops.
Lots of Bongo fans at the Ernie Ball company forums.
If your trade was even-up, IMHO you got the much better deal.

Bongo's have become pretty popular. There a lot of talk about them on the TalkBass site.

Nice bass, I would not turn that into a Jazz bass. I love Jazz basses, but that is to nice a bass to try to turn into something else. Sell it and buy what you want.

Sounds like you came out better in that trade.
