WITHDRAWN - Warmoth PJ Bass - Sandberg Black Label / Hipshot Hardware / Noll Electrics - Transparent Purple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

Warmoth Custom Neck

At the moment it is set up for D Standard --> DGCF

4,5 KG

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I put it up for sale for WITHDRAWN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.

      Hi all,
      I'm moving on my jazz bass that these were fitted to.  All in good condition and can post. 

      £70 - Seymour Duncan Quarter Pounder Jazz pickups.  https://www.thomann.de/gb/seymour_duncan_quarter_pound_jazz_bass_set.htm

      SOLD ----- Hipshot BT-2 D-Tuner
      SOLD ----- Kiogon Jazz loom for series / parallel switching.
      SOLD ----- Schaller BMF tuners.

      £70 - Babicz FCH bridge.  Got these on my other basses, great for intonation and I think they look pretty cool too.  Screws are included. https://www.thomann.de/gb/babicz_bass_bridge_chrom.htm
      If you're interested in the bass with any of these mods fitted then that is doable.
      Thanks for looking,

      Olympic white yellowed relic alder body
      made by the Italian luthier Mattia Franchin (you can find some product on sale on reverb too)
      great body with really well done aging process.
      the treatment is light relic 
      compatible with all fender strandard precision necks.
      i placed some wood under the pickup foam’s because I like to have the pickup firm but they are glued and easy to remove.
      the wood is resonant and light (whole bass around 4 kg) 
      price is 300 euros shipped to your door!

      Cort Jeff Berlin Rithmic V 
      CONSTRUCTION: Bolt-on
      CUTAWAY: Double Cutaway
      BODY: Alder body with Spalted Maple and Padouk Top
      NECK: Hard Maple Neck,
      FRETBOARD: Rosewood, 12" Radius(305mm)
      SCALE: 34" (864mm)
      TUNERS: Hipshot Ultralight Tuners
      BRIDGE: Babicz FCH5 Bridge
      PICKUPS: Bartolini Jeff Berlin Custom Soapbar Pickups
      ELECTRONICS:volume, 1 Balance, 1 Tone passive Electronics
      HARDWARE: Gold
      STRINGS: Labella Low Tension Felxible flats
      WEIGHT:  3.9kg. / 8.7lbs
      I'm offering this beautiful bass up for sale/trade.
      i.m.o. it is one of the best sounding and most versatile passive jazz basses ever made (check the video).
      The bass is mint except for one little ding in the finish on the underside towards the back (you don't even notice it unless you really look for it. Will ad detailed pictures later!), so I'd give it an 9/10.
      Soundwise this thing is a beast, the neck pickup goes from a Gibson EB type sound to a P-bass on steroids kinda sound and the bridge pickup goes from a 70's style jazz pu sound to full on Musicman growl, 
      It is no doubt a very versatile little beast for a passive instrument and she will be missed..
      RRP for these is 1350Euro or +-1200£, so I'd set the trade value at +-750£ and cash price at 650£,
      I still have the box it came in so shipping is no problem.  
      Feel free to give me a shout if you have any questions.
      The video above gives a nice overview of the different sounds you can get with the passive controls, the video below shows the bass in action in the hands of Lorenzo Feliciati .

      Kind regards,
      stay healthy and safe!
