  1. Bought this with an idea of changing the pickups for dimarzio with the cream covers. for a 70's coffee and creme feel.. Never going to happen though. It's nice condition. Definitely been played but only one small mark that I can see. Surface marks where it's been played with a pick on the pickguard. Cool thing and all seems to be working as it should. Specs: Model Name: Squier P-Bass Special Series: Squier Standard Series Body: Agathis Neck: Maple, Jazz Bass Neck, C-Shape, Polyurethane Finish Fingerboard: Rosewood, 9.5” Radius (241 mm) No. of Frets: 20 Medium Jumbo Scale Length: 34” (864 mm) Width at Nut: 1.500” (38 mm) Hardware: Chrome Machine Heads: Standard Open-Gear Tuners Bridge: Standard 4-Saddle Pickups: * 1 Split Single-Coil Precision Bass Pickup (Mid) * 1 Single-Coil Jazz Bass Pickup (Bridge) Pickup Switching: None Controls: * Volume 1 (Neck Pickup) * Volume 2 (Bridge Pickup) * Master Tone
  2. Good condition. Few marks and dings as you can see in the pics. I'll get some extra pictures posted later. Just bought a Nate Mendel P so this and my Precision TB will sadly have to go.

    That's a cracker!
  5. Bought on here a few months ago and an absolutely beautiful bass. I'll paste the description from the previous seller below because it's perfect: It doesn't say California on the headstock instead it says "Custom Shop Instrument". From enquiries I made to Sandberg I believe this was a special bass built before Sandberg officially started making the California series. (Made around 2004-6 (I believe). I bought this on here in 2010 and have used it regularly since. It has a very reasonable weight of 9lbs 2oz and has terrific balance. When I originally bought this I really wanted a passive VS4 and I recently bought one so I'm not really using this to it's full potential. A new model VM4 in this spec would cost around £1500. I upgraded the old active circuit with a brand new Sandberg preamp as the old one did not have a passive treble control and I also upgraded to the newest style Sandberg bridge and string tree. The finish is a really nice soft-aged white/cream. I don't think I added any further dings! This bass now has a Sandberg P style rather than the original Delano as I tried a more recent VM4 and realised why Sandberg modified the design fairly quickly. I find the Sandberg P is less nasal sounding in the "reverse P" position. I kept the original Delano MM on as it sounds great. The aforementioned preamp is Sandberg's own 2-band with active/passive push/pull volume knob (made by Glockenklang for Sandberg) The neck is 39mm at the zero fret, so a little wider than a Jazz but narrower than a typical Precision and has a fairly slim feel and plays very well. I believe that the body wood is Alder. Selling due to the realisation that I just prefer passive basses. Too many options confuse my feeble mind!!! Not in any rush on this and I'm definitely open to trades. I like roadworn and the 'lived life' look. Fender P's, Maruszczyk Jake, T Birds, Cataldos and Rics..(If i'm allowed to mention them here? Apologies if not) Any questions just holler. It deffo looks a lot yellower/creamier in the flesh. Sandberg gig bag included.
  6. Lovely J bass. Bought it off a nice American chap who primarily played drums. This was brought to the UK from Chicago where it was played a handful of times. The reason I'm selling is I have a scabby Mex jazz that I just prefer. What can I say...I'm a bit of a heathen I guess. This is a much nicer instrument and actually sounds a lot nicer in reality than the jazz. But I just just prefer the snorting barking red one. Scratchplate was missing when I bought it. Welcome to come and try it out or shipping is no worries. Specs: The Skyline 44-60 shares many of the same specifications as our USA Series 44-60 bass, and is outfitted with the same passively delicious Lakland J-style pickups – fabricated by hand and wound with precision at our custom shop in Chicago. Players love the comfy 1.5” taper of the Skyline Series 44-60 neck.

  7. This is a great playing and sounding bass. Couple of marks and a dodgy bit of re laquering (?) on the back. At some point somebody has sanded the serial off the back of the neck so I can't date this one. Nice wood on the neck and super playable with what seems to be a vintage tint on it. Perfect back up bass for someone but it plays very nicely in it's own right. Like the other one I have for sale it has the jazz width neck and PJ pickup layout. This one has different tuners and a different decal. Maybe it's an earlier model?? More than welcome to come and check it out and have a play or shipping no problem.
  8. Cheers mate. Lovely jazz you have! Updated Trades: Fender P's and J's American & sig models like Flea, Adam Clayton, Dirnt etc T'Birds Other Ps and J's , Maruszczyk etc I have no problem with roadworn,battered looking basses as long as they function! Weird colours and reverse headstocks will always catch my eye. And possible a 2 eq stingray. I know I know I know...but I've had a few rays and I can cope with the active 'tronics on those. Just... Cash adjustment up can be done. Cheers folks
  9. I'm sure you all know what these are. Lovely condition and plays nice. Realised that as I can barely play fretted the romantic idea of playing fretless is a little beyond me. Welcome to come and try it out or shipping is no worries.

    Wow. That is awesome.
  11. I think it's maybe priced a little high? Now reduced to £200 and if there's no interest from the good folk of BC I'll ebay it to he masses. Strings are tired so they'll need changing.

  13. Don't know a lot about the history of this. My GF bought this for me as a present to encourage me to pick up a bass again after a long time out and selling all my gear a few years before. A move she is probably regretting now Has a J-East preamp fitted and has DR Black Beauties which have about 5 minutes playing time since I strung them. Truss rod cover missing. Specs that I can find online are: Neck-thru body construction Multi-laminate mahogany and maple neck Mahogany body Rosewood fingerboard with dot inlay Grover bass tuners Custom JJ pickups Again..if you've seen the other listings in this clearout...Active basses are a bit lost on me. I'm a bit thick Plays nice and sounds good.
  14. Been playing it this morning and having second thoughts. I'll see how I feel about it next week. I'll put some flats on it and enjoy it in the meantime.
  15. Hadn't really thought about before as weight makes no difference to me. It's a cracking bass all round tbh.
  16. Mint condition. Lovely looking and playing bass. I'll get some extra pictures posted later. Just bought a Nate Mendel P so this and my classic vibe 50's will have to go because as lovely as they both are they don't get played.

  17. It's £250 collected which is what I paid for it. I can put it in a gigbag I have spare and fully protect and package. I can take it into work and get the logistics guys to do it nicely. Shipping is probs around £20 max.
  18. Cheers buddy. It's a really nice bass.
