Amazing looks, range and versatility for the serious bassist.
This Ball Family Reserve bass blends a medium metallic green dual HH basswood body with a flame roasted maple neck, rosewood fingerboard and exquisite hand-fitted white binding. This BFR Bongo is beautifully accented with white pearl pickguard, black plastic parts and chrome plated hardware making this a very rare collectable instrument. The Bongo 6 comes standard with 18-volt 4 Band Preamp, stainless steel frets and is limited to just 67 pieces worldwide.
The Bongo 6 represents everything a modern six string bass should be: well balanced, comfortable, resonant and expressive with effortless playability. The double cutaway basswood body design is of superior construction and along with a 24 fret finished neck offers unimpeded access to high register two-octave fretwork.
Available in double humbucking and humbucking single configurations the Bongo along with its 4 band eq, Neodymium pickups, and 18V active preamp deliver a powerful combination of unparalleled tonal diversity.
Ball Family Reserve is a celebration of heritage in instrument craftsmanship, which features some of the finest figured tone woods and finishes available.
