Sandberg Classic Booster 5 custom *Price drop!*

Recommended Posts

Hi folks! 

This bass is just incredible, probably my favourite ever, but I've had a bit of a change of direction and it needs a new home. 

This was my second sandberg custom build, built around 2013/14. It's very lightweight and ergonomic, very balanced tonally, versatile, and features that incredible sandberg neck feel! I upgraded to a swamp ash body which not only looks stunning (pics don't do it justice!), but it's incredibly lightweight at around 3.7kg, and it works exceptionally tone - wise with the maple fretboard. I also upgraded to a 3 band eq (these models normally come with 2 band). The natural headstock was also an upgrade, as these would come with a black one as standard. It is actually a veneer with a black accent layer in between. 

Specs :

Swamp ash body with matt cherry sunburst finish 

Maple neck and fretboard

Natural headstock

Black hardware

2x dual coil soapbars

3 band Glockenklang eq with true passive bypass and passive tone control

Comes with original sandberg gigbag


There are a couple of very minor dings in the body, I can attempt to photograph these if you like. 


No trades sorry. If you're nearby, you're more than welcome to come and try! 


Thanks for looking! 😊👍

      For sale is a rare Parker Fly 5. I bought this on a bit of a whim earlier in the year, but I'm finding the string spacing is a bit tight for my gorilla mitts, so it's not getting the use it deserves. A huge tonal range from magnetic and piezo pickups, specs are below. A few small dinks, shown in the photos, but in very good overall condition.
      £1200 including UK shipping, contact me for shipping costs anywhere else. Collection from near Woking in Surrey welcome. Payment by cash on collection or bank transfer/Transferwise only please. Comes with Parker logo'd Levy's padded gig bag. Sorry, but I'm looking for a straight sale only, so no trade offers please.
      Sitka Spruce laminated body with Quilted Maple front and back, the neck is Mahogany wrapped in carbon fibre, the headstock is Curly Maple. The fretboard is glass and carbon fibre with stainless steel frets. Fretboard radius 10"-15", 34" scale. 24 medium size, hardened stainless steel frets, lightweight aluminum locking Sperzel® tuners. GraphTech® nut, width: 1.8". Mono-Rail II bridge with individual Fishman piezo pickups, gain of each adjustable from within the control cavity. 17mm string spacing at the bridge. 2 Custom DiMarzio Ultra Jazz™ hum-cancelling pickups with active Fishman EQ. Controls are: master volume, magnetic pickup volume, magnetic pickup pan, stacked magnetic active 2 band EQ, stacked piezo tone and volume.

      Price drop to £750!
      I acquired this in an exchange on this veritable forum a short while ago as a 5 string experiment. Alas I have far too few fingers and it's not worked out for me - I'm sticking to 4 strings!! So, she's up for sale or an exchange for a 4 string G&L L2000 if anyone has one kicking around. 
      Year 2000 USA model and in fab condition (tiniest bit of buckle rash and a weeny dink on the headstock). Comes with new strings and original hard case. No issues and sounds amazing! 
      I'm based near Harlow/Bishop's Stortford and can travel to Herts/Kent/London for work so pretty flexible for delivery/demo
      Pm me with questions please and thanks for looking 😊
      (Harry, hope it's OK to use your pics - I'm in France at the moment!)

      Hi . I've got a Fender American Deluxe Dimension V HH MN in Natural finish for sale. 750£ ono
      It's a 5-string bass guitar with an ash body, maple neck with an asymmetrical  C shape, maple fretboard, and a bone nut with a width of 44,5mm.
      It has 21 frets, 34" scale (864mm), 2 humbucker pickups, Hi-mass bridge, 5 position blade switch, Active electronics, 
      It's shows signs of use, particulary in the neck (please see pictures). I believe the price reflects this. It sounds and plays very well and I've enjoyed playing it
      This series of basses came out between 2013-2016 and has excellent reviews online. It was replaced with the Fender American Elite Dimension Bass V, which is basically the same instruments with a different name, very similar specs and a higher retail price!
      It includes a gig bag, buyer covers shipping cost. Probably around 30£ in the UK. Located in South East London.
      Prefer a sale but would consider trades for a 4 string bass of similar price/quality/condition. Let me know what you've got!

      For sale is my MTD Kingston Super 5, bought new from Bass Direct last year. It has huge amounts of tonal range from twin MM-style pickups with dual 3-way coil tap switches and 3-band eq. 35" scale with a great low B. Satin Black finish, Laurel fingerboard. There's a bit of finger swirl in the finish below the strings, but otherwise it's in excellent condition. Here's a link to the specs: http://www.bassdirect.co.uk/bass_guitar_specialists/MTD_Super_5_DB_Maple.html
      It had a tiny amount of neck dive when I bought it, so I upgraded the tuners to USA Hipshot Ultralites (£125 for the set) and it sits beautifully. The original tuners are also included in the sale. £725 including UK shipping. Sorry, but I'm looking for a straight sale, so no trades offers please.
