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. These rare pieces are offered in limited production runs and allow Music Man builders to present instruments to the public that were previously reserved for family and loyal artists.
