I've decided to part with my Bongo 6, so I'm hoping it can find a loving home on here.
I've had the bass around 5 years. It came from Wunjo Bass in Denmark Street. It's a really beautiful colour, which makes for an all-round lovely looking instrument (I'm assuming you don't mind Bongos in general). It plays really nicely, and sounds fantastic (modern, active, lively). The colour in these photos is very accurate.
It's basically in the same condition as when I bought it: Good in terms of all the critical elements, but some cosmetic damage to the paintwork. You can see more in the photos, I hope!
Good bits (condition):
The pots are all clean.
The electronics all working as expected.
Fretboard is excellent condition, and the frets are in good order. I've had no issues with raised frets or similar.
The neck is completely clear of cosmetic issues, and still has the satin finish intact.
Tuners are all excellent.
Bridge is excellent.
No marks on the front of the body.
The flight case is excellent.
No funny smells. Never stored in a smoking household (to my knowledge).
Cosmetic issues (all visible in the photos):
A few bits of damage to the headstock paintwork.
A mark on the rear, near the cavity cover.
A small mark on the lower cutaway.

Happy to answer any questions, as best as I can!
I'd be happy to ship the bass. I have a suitable shipping box for it. Most couriers will insure it, as it has a flight case.
Also happy if someone wanted to pick it up, or meet somewhere South of Leicester, West of Cambridge, East of Taunton (ish).
Obviously more than happy for interested parties to come and check it over in person!
regarding trades, please see below.
Trades? I’m always interested. However, I’m primarily motivated by a cash sale right now. Some trades I’m definitely not interested in:
4-strings (or less)
string spacings larger than 18mm at bridge
anything that doesn’t balance well on a nylon strap.
