This is the awesome MusicMan Bongo 6. The bass features the standard E A D G strings, but also goes down to a B on the low end, and a C on the top.
Very rare in the UK, this MusicMan Bongo 6 has incredible balance across all strings, and can provide a huge variety of tones. As used by DreamTheater's John Myung.
This Bongo features one MusicMan humbucking pickup with neodymium magnets, and has a smooth neck which feels very comfortable. Its basswood body is finished in hi-gloss polyester black, and it features a maple neck (with black matt finish) with rosewood fretboard.

As MusicMan say:
"The Bongo 6 represents everything a modern six string bass should be: well balanced, comfortable, resonant and expressive with effortless playability. The double cutaway basswood body design is of superior construction and along with a 24 fret finished neck offers unimpeded access for high register two octave fretwork. Available in single humbucking, double humbucking and humbucking single configurations the Bongo along with its 4 band eq, Neodymium pickups and 18V active preamp deliver a powerful combination of unparalleled tonal diversity"
