  1. Ooh, I've always wanted to try one of these. Three questions: 1) How well does it balance when on a strap? I've seen a few reviews that say the short horn makes it neck-heavy, despite being headless. 2) Can you provide more details about the issue with the saddle screw? A close-up photo of the saddle would be great! 3) What woods are the body and neck? Cheers! ...Joe.
  2. Beautiful bass. Played a couple of these over the years and they are so nice to play and sound amazing! good luck with the sale!
  3. Thanks! I'm very much still in the mode of gathering info about how they sound at the moment, before making an informed purchase. (my comment about buying from PMT was literally just to take advantage of the 14-day returns, in lieu of being able to visit any shops). I hope your sale is successful!
  4. Thanks! Sounds lovely. I've only played the Sandberg California and Custom models before, so it's nice to get an idea of what the Panther is like. There's two Panthers available from PMT at the moment, and I'm thinking about ordering one just to try it out.
  5. I was wondering if there's anyone with experience of the Sandberg Panther Specials, who could help me understand it's fundamental tonal characteristics? Obviously I'd expect some tonewood variance, so I'm just looking for a ballpark idea. I've listened to the limited set of examples on youtube, but would be interested in players' experiences - including anyone who's played them with a pick. Background: I currently own a California VM2, which I find to be 'warm' and 'beefy', with a rounded tone. It can be brightened-up, but gets a bit harsh. Thanks!
  6. I never tried B-G, but tried drop-D and wasn't keen. Mind you, I wasn't using heavier gauges, so ymmv.
  7. Lovely bass, very smart looking. Bet it sounds fantastic, as most BTB's do. Good luck with the sale!
  8. All reasonable offers considered (not quite sure on the market value). No trades, though! I've just moved house and I'm having to downsize my bass collection. As a result, I'm selling this Ibanez BTB33 (otherwise known as the 'Volo' bass). It's a lovely example of the BTB style of instrument, with through-neck and practical wood choices giving it a particularly smart appearance. The stand-out difference over typical BTB basses is the scale length and string spacing... 33" scale and 17mm string spacing. I guess the bass was designed to offer a similar type of playing experience to basses such as the Fodera MG or Overwater SD models. Certainly, the 33-inch scale is very comfortable for noodling and always seems to encourage a more relaxed left-hand (YMMV, of course). The condition of the bass is excellent. No case, but it is boxed and can be shipped if the buyer pays for insurance. Otherwise, I'd be happy for buyers to collect and I'd also consider delivering it... I'm based in Milton Keynes but often in Chippenham... so I'd consider delivering to Cambridgeshire, Northamptonshire, Bucks, Beds, Oxfordshire, Cotswolds, Wiltshire, Bristol, etc. Specs (accurate to the best of my knowledge)... Construction: Neck-through, with ramp Body: Ash top, Mahogany Wings Neck: Maple and Bubinga. Rosewood board. Electronics: Bartolini BH-1, with active pre-amp. Cheers! Pics:
