hi guys

well ive been on my bass hunt for a long time now and after looking used i found a Fender Marcus miller jazz bass, a MM stingray, a bongo and a spector euro LX5 for 800 dollars!

considering the rise of bass prices i better act on this fast. the only problem is deciding which to choose. ive tried them all and im stuck between the spector bongo and marcus miller.


well anyways this post is supposed to prove taht if you look hard enough you can find a great deal.

I just got a bongo and it's incredible. Very comfortable neck, all the tones you could ever want. Great bass.

Marcus Miller.

Plays great, looks sexy as hell.

First time I played one, I nearly doo dooed in my trousers.

WEll then the bongo is defiantly really good value for money, the marcus miller is alot cheaper new. The MM stingray is also cheper than the bongo and im not sure on the spector. But i still think the bongo is better value and is so versatile it wont matter. Its really down to you know, little things that you preferred over the other and that stuff. A bass like that is a bas for life.

Wow, you're VERY spoiled for choice. the bongo would be my least favourite out of the 4, but other than that i can't really say. flip a coin/roll a dice?

If its a 4 string Marcus Miller, dont do it.

The Bongo will hold it's value the best.

Out of the SR and bongo, I would go bongo. It's pretty much stingray tones and more.

Im indifferent about the Spector.
