Ernie Ball Music Man John Myung Bongo 6 HH - Platinum Silver
The John Myung artist series Bongo is a sleek, ultra-modern 6 string bass crafted and perfected to John's exacting specifications.

Some key features include a simplified control layout with preprogrammed equalization, a perfectly balanced compact basswood body mated to a maple neck with 5 string nut width for tighter string spacing, and a golden ratio fretboard utilizing a combination of rosewood and roasted maple for an elegant aesthetic. This instrument is truly an artist inspired design that facilitates John's needs as a performance artist and master technician.
