Can the Bongo bass do anything?

Can the Bongo bass do anything?

After a deal for a cutlass bass fell thru, am flirting with the idea of bankrupting myself and buying a really top class bass.

I had heard that the Stingray has quite a unique and distinctive sound, so that puts me off, given I will need all round versatility.

The Fender precision bass is, well..just too obvious.

But the music man site claims that the Bongo is basically an all round bass, suited too many different styles.

Could any Bongo players please confirm whether this is their experience?… because the name itself implies quite specific funky roots.

Not that I’ve got anything against this musical genre, just need something wider.

They are quite rare in the Uk so some difficulty in getting to play one.
