SKC Bogart Sport 5 SOLD

Recommended Posts


Up for sale is my SKC Bogart Sport 5-string headless. I bought it on here early last year, and after using it on a string of festivals over the summer, liked it so much I had another one custom made for me by Stefan, and unfortunately I just can't justify keeping both.

It's in excellent condition, with no marks, chips or dings. These are seriously good basses, with great consistency and tonal range. It's currently fitted with D'Addario 40-125 nickels with a nice low action. Being headless, it sits on the knee or a strap beautifully, and at 3.4kg you hardly know you're wearing it.

Here are the specs:
34" scale, zero fret
Rosewood fingerboard
Blackstone body in off-white satin finish
Carbon graphite satin finish woven neck
Bartolini J/MM pickups with single coil/parallel tap switch on bridge pickup
Noll TCM3 3-band preamp with active/passive push/pull on volume pot.

I'm reckon Stefan could probably supply an alternative slotted headpiece for double ball ends. Worth an email to him to check if it's important to you - [email protected]

That is just mint. If I didn't already have one, I'd have bought that the day you listed it.

      Higher end 'Cort GB5 Custom' in great condition, low action, 34" scale, B is super tight and sounds huge, usual minor marks top of headstock. Comes with Cort gig bag and can be well boxed for transportation if required. New strings about to be fitted. Really is a fantastic bass which i ended up keeping over 2 x Laklands, Stingray 5 and a higher end Yamaha bass - I can't imagine a better 5 string for this price.
      This bass had a John East Uni pre amp fitted which improved the overall tone tenfold. It can also be switched between Active & Passive with a very handy passive tone. The extra dip switches puts the Seymour Duncan pickups in parallel with each other and the other switches between active/passive.
      Specs from the t'interweb:
      . BODY: Swamp Ash with Spalted Maple Top
      · •NECK: Canadian Hard Maple
      · •FRETBOARD: Rosewood, 15 3/4" Radius (400mm)
      · •FRETS: 22 / Large (2.7mm)
      · •SCALE: 34" (864mm)
      · •INLAY: Rectangular White Pearl
      · •TUNERS: Hipshot lic.
      · •BRIDGE: EB12(5)
      · •PICKUPS: Seymour Duncan SJ5-3N & SMB-5D
      •ELECTRONICS: Upgraded to John East Uni
      All in all a fantastic bass for the money that I will miss dearly but I need something lighter. 
      Bargain - now £375  (Have a good box for packing) or collection from Plymouth.
      May consider trades up or down for a 5 string bass strictly under 8.5lbs in weight. This one weighs in a exactly 10.2lbs.
      Weird camera angle shot (kind of makes the bass look twisted .....)

      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! 😊👍
