Watchtower Guitars is extremely excited to be anewMusic Man dealer! We love the fit, finish and incredible value these instruments have to offer.

Available in double humbucking configuration, the Bongo along with its 4 band eq, Neodymium pickups, and 18V active preamp, deliver a powerful combination of unparalleled tonal diversity.
