WITHDRAWN - Warmoth PJ Bass - Sandberg Black Label / Hipshot Hardware / Noll Electrics - Transparent Purple

Recommended Posts

Hello there !

So I fell in love with a Sandberg which I've already ordered and since I am not Richie Rich I need to sell something to raise the funds for this aka live in peace with the mother of my children.

I have to admit that this move is stupid since it burns the money I've spent in the blink of an eye but the love for the Sandberg is so strong ..... I don't care.

Up for sale is the Warmoth PJ project that has just been finished and is built from only highclass parts. So far has been played on for maybe 3 hours so it is like new !

This baby was put together by a professional luthier in Germany (Acys Guitar Lounge). It received the best treatment and all the routings and the electric cavity was shielded professionally.

This is what it cost me:
Pickups: 230 EUR
Bridge: 130 EUR
Electrics inkl. Potis: 200 EUR
Body and Neck incl. shipping and all taxes: 1500 EUR
Tuners: 145 EUR
Security Locks: 20 EUR
Luthier costs to put it together professionally: 630 EUR

In total: 2.855 EUR

I put it up for sale for WITHDRAWN

... shipping to anywhere within the European Union
... standard Sandberg Gigbag
... higher insurance

I am not interested in a trade

You can play and pick it up in Munich/Germany and pay in cash if you want to. You can also pay by bank transfer (You cover the transfer costs) or by PayPal (Family & Friends only)

If you want to I can make more pictures.

Hey !

This bass is not an only child. It has a younger sister so you won't have to fight with the typical problems of only children when you accept this bass into your family ;)

Lovely stuff.

Out of interest, where did you source the Sandberg Black Labels? 

Hey ! I ordered this set from "Rockinger" which is a famous online store over here in Germany. As almost every other store they did not have this set in stock so they had to order it from Sandberg. I am not sure why but most stores only have the 2xMM style set or 2xJ style set available.

GLWTS - that is a thing of real beauty!

Thank you. This Bass is not just a beauty looks wise but also sound wise. (Which of course lies in the eye of the beholder)

The combination of this Noll system and the hum free Sandberg Black Label Pickups is not just extremely versatile but also very strong. You can get all sounds from very dark and muddy stoner sounds to popping slap sounds.

I only considered selling it because I thought that I would easily get the funds I need for the Sandberg Nighthawk Plus that I already ordered but it seems that people are not willing to spend as much money for an extremely high quality Warmoth built killer bass as they are willing to spend for a good but pretty standard USA made Fender/Gibson/you name it instrument.

Maybe I have to sell my Sandberg VM2 bass instead. Of course I could not ask as much as I am asking for this Warmoth but I think it is easier to sell as it has a "name" on the Headstock ;)

Keeping the bass together or consider splitting it up?

H Cuzzie

Splitting it up is no option at the moment.

      Selling this unique bass, very special one. The only existing bolt-on mBass ever made by Marleaux. It is a bolt on as that is usually the prefered construction type by many for a more balanced fretless sound.
      New price would be around 4800€, but this bass was a one of, so cannot be ordered new.
      The bass is in absolute pristine condition with no dings or marks. I am only selling it because I need the money and this bass is not getting used ao much.
      - 34" scale, 
      - 5 string lined fretless 24 fret marks
      - three-peace maple neck
      - ebony fingerboard
      - mahogany body
      - figured pear wood top with wenge accent veneer
      - delano quad coil pickups
      - marleaux 3 band eq with active-passive switch
      - includes marleaux rigid gigbag, strap locks, tools and marleaux booklet
      - includes a new set of Marleaux roundwound strings
      - ships with laBella deep talking flatwounds.
      - include two ebony finger ramps (currently not installed on the bass)
      Asking 3300€/2995£ negotiable. Can ship worldwide.
      I could consider partial trades with money my way with things like: Fender american precision basses and/or 5 string american active jazz basses (can be nom fender) Noble preamps, vanderkley amplificarion stuff, trickfish preamps, some pedals, and yamaha silent basses.

      The Gotoh GB350 is the lightest bass Machine Head on the market, similar in weight to the USA made Hipshot Ultralites they are from (IMHO) the best maker of bass hardwatre on the planet. They bturn really smoothly and despite the light weight (40g per tuner) they have a real mass of metal. The dimensions can be seen in the picture at the end.
      This is a four-in-line set designed for a right handed bass. They have been hanging around for some time so the box is not pristine butthey are new. The price for these on Thomann is £95 plus £8 shipping. All the fittings are included.

      More out of curiosity than anything else, I will probably be swapping the MK1 preamp in my Cort at a later date. A quick internet search doesn't yield many results for opinions on the Noll preamps - although what is there is generally favourable. Specifically thinking of the 4 band option. Anyone have any experience with these?

      warmoth neck, precision 51, maple with maple fingerboard, steel reinforced bars inside.

      i sell because i prefer to move in a precision ‘59 project 
      Asking 350£ (390 euros)

      PRICE REDUCED to £550
      Here’s a cracking bass which has been shamefully underused in the past 5 years, hence the sale.
      It’s a Bassline Buster Classic, made in Germany in 1996. Bassline are a small, custom bass company based in Germany. The new price of this would’ve been circa £1600. A few years ago I contacted Bassline directly who were ace to give me the following wood specs:
      Body european ash, hardmaple neck, and a padouk fingerboard
      It has LeFay pickups and a Noll 2-band EQ with controls for Volume (push/pull for passive mode), Bass, Treble and Pickup Pan. Nut Width is 38mm and there’s a ‘Zero’ fret. It also has Neutrik locking jack socket and Schaller strap locks (with 2 positions at the bridge end to quickly jump between heights which conveniently also makes it stable resting on the floor).
      It’s in ace condition, although I’d note there’s a tiny indent on the scoop up to the fingerboard past the 24th fret and few marks on the lower horn and body edge where I knocked the bass over after posting this ad (see photos in comments). All minor and character adding in my opinion - like us all it’s lived!
      Playability wise, it has he slimmest, fastest neck I’ve ever encountered. It’s also super lightweight (3.7kg) so along with the fast neck you can keep going for hours.
      I don’t have a gig bag but the bass will be shipped very securely in a Fender cardboard bass box, within hand-carved polystyrene protection.
      Any questions or you’d like a test drive, feel free to pop me a message!
