Did he stop endorsing Yamaha and moved to Musicman officially?

Yes, Music Man state here that he will now be exclusively using Music Man 6 string Bongo basses, and he no longer appears in the list of artists on the Yamaha website. They also say that they are not a signature bass, and that they are part of the regular line.

Dude if i were you i'd look more at bands like Dragonforce, Dragonland, Dream Theatre and Power Quest, most of their songs are either in E major, A major, C major or D majhor

Also, from what I understand, Ernie Ball wanted to release the Bongo 6 but wanted an artist to use it first. Enter John Myung.

I was looking at a used Warwick Vampyre LTD 5'er for about $200. I went home to grab my wallet and came back and some jerk with an epic beard got it already..

John was also involved in the development of it, after he epressed interest in a 6 string Bongo. His endorsement of them is just him getting the bass he wants and mucisman getting free advertising.

Yeah, Sterling Ball made it clear that he was just thrilled that the Bongo 6 was NOT a JM sig, just a normal model. I'm not sure why that makes any difference, but he was happy that JM didn't ask for it to be a sig.

I believe musicman stated that they wouldn't make a bongo 6 unless a high-profile artist asked for one. Which is obviously what happened.
