Hello Bass Brothers and Sisters,

Please find for sale this wonderful Sandberg Basic 4, don't let the name fool you, it's anything but..

It growls, is both active and passive and plays like a dream, its been gigged but well looked after serviced Rich Stubbs who's a fine tech in the local area of Stoke where it is currently living.

I'm up for a swap to a high quality P with a maple neck, whichever way we trade you will have to come to me as i don't drive, I wont ship and cash is king, sorry but I want it to go to a good home. I realise that sounds daft but its served me well and yes I'm that picky.

The original hardware was silver and the pick guard was white, these have all been replaced with Sandberg official parts in black and it looks spot on in my humble opinion.I can dig out the original parts as part of the sale of course, the bass will also come with the hardcase pictured.

The pros; it plays superbly and will never let you down, prepare to intimidate the living crap out of your drummer (don't pretend you don't want to) and also has a ridiculously fast neck ..

The cons; the battery cover lid is broken, notorious with these I've replaced it twice in the end I gave up and electrical tape does the job just fine. There is also a nail mark above the pick up, strangely shaped like mine and the e off the Sandberg logo is missing (it fell off) I left replacing it as it seemed more rock n roll ..these points however are clearly visible in the photo's

Thank you for looking and have an epic day..

You need it.

These are great basses. I have had one before and can vouch for that. The necks are brilliant and the range of tones is surprising considering the single pickup. They should change the name of these instruments as they are anything but "Basic".

Good luck with the sale.

I thought the Basic was out way before the Arona, which has a different pickup configuration and body shape?

Basics are great, love mine!

I have only ever played one Sandberg, a Panther Custom, but it was so good I bought it on the spot!

No problem, I didn't really get on with six, hence the sale.

Not really, I don't want to risk damage. I've had bad experiences in the past, which id rather not repeat..

      Now only £945... p&p available
      As new condition!! 
       
      In order to avoid alienating the “traditionaly sane" members of the Basschat community; I have arranged the following advert to be compiled in two parts. 

      Part One will detail; 
      · The item for sale
      · The asking price 
      · The option for delivery/collection 

      Part Two will contain; 
      · Mostly nonsense
      · Incoherent babbling
      · The ramblings of a mad man

      Both parts will be void of any humour (naturally) 
      and absolutely no content contained within Part Two should be taking likely and can not be held against me in my forthcoming sanity plea...

      Part Two
       
      So basically, back when I was slightly more deluded than I am today, I purchased a number of Fretless Bass Guitars with the notion that I could master a Fretless instrument with little to no actual effort being made on my part. Needless to say, I was wrong...
      Whilst it might not be “Racket-Silence" or “Brian Sturgeon-ary" to learn how to play a Fretless Bass Guitar, I will come clean right now and just admit that I am far too lazy to continue with anything that doesn't go my way immediately or pretty soon thereafter... I wouldn't go as far to say that I'm a defeatist but let me put it this way; If I flip the switch on a kettle and it ain't plugged in... the tea ain't getting made! Same goes for if ain't got no water in...
      So anyway, I'm now in possession of an all-round awesome German-made Sandberg California Fretless Bass Guitar that just isn't getting played and even when it is actually getting played it's actually not getting played, it's just more or less just being held whilst I slide a finger up the D string and listen to it go “Mwahhh"... and then back down the D string to hear it go “Mwohhh"... I will sometimes repeat this three or four times before returning the gorgeous instrument to its lovely Sandberg padded case...
      To be honest I'm a little miffed as the sales person who sold me the instrument told me that “Sandberg's literally play themselves". I think what they meant to have said was “Sandberg's figuratively play themselves" because, believe me, this instrument does NOT play itself. Not that I ever tried connecting it to an amp and leaving it in a stand next to my record player whilst I played it classic funky Motown tracks in the hope that it might play along... Ha, ha!! No, that'd be stoopid!!... Ha!!.. ha, ha...   Actually, come to think of it, maybe I just didn't have the volume up loud enough... ... I'll try again tomorrow... 
      So I'm not making any promises but this instrument might actually play itself!!...
      The Sandberg is a passive bass meaning that it is entirely non-violent and fully compliant. It has AlNiCo Jazz Pickups, possibly something to do with Al Pacino...
      The fingerboard is Rosewood or possibly a Pau Ferro which I'm assuming is the creator of the material but it looks like Rosewood but apparently it's actually a Pau Ferro which I have no idea what a Pau Ferro is... But it might be the creator but I'm not sure... But it's actually probably Rosewood... Let's go with “Ro Ferro" 
      The hardware is black and all of it is, so that looks pretty cool... Err, it's also got a pickguard for those of you with really long scratchy “Nosferatu" nails or terrible “punk-like" strumming technique...
      Anyway, the finish is rather interesting. That's “finish" not “Finnish" though I'm sure the Finnish are also rather interesting... but in regards to the Sandberg's body finish, this finish is actually a 3 tone matt sunburst finish which is rather close to the tobacco sunburst finish but somewhere in between that finish and the regular sunburst finish. So altogether a pretty unique looking finish...
      Anyway, that's the finish!!

      Oh!! If you're actually interested in the Sandberg, visiting times are daily between 08:00 - 10:00 & 16:00 - 19:00 unless specifically requested in advance (hard hats to be worn at all times).

      *Edit: Enjoy the less grainy pics... 















      “Ooooohhh.... Look at that tasty, toasty finish & yummy, scrummy grain..."

      Hi all
      if anyone is selling a hardcore aged Sandberg TM5 with block inlays. Prefer rosewood fretboard and natural headstock. I’m interested. Long shot but you never know... thanks!

      Finally managed to collect my new toy which replaces a Fender Professional P Bass.  
      Summary ........ This has the nicest / most playable neck I've ever tried, it's light, and the body feels smaller than a P and feels great.   A strange analogy,  but it just  "fits like a glove" .   And it does look rather cool and could end up as a classic!  So thanks to Mark at Cool and Classic guitars for his patience (took a few months to collect this due to it being a 700 mile round trip  to collect and Lockdown etc) and for making the process of buying so easy! 
      Starting to get to grips with the tone - which is a LOT more complicated to deal with than a passive P Bass  and can't wait to play it with the band.
      Is it good?   Well, I haven't put it down for three days, so I reckon it must be. 
      Hmmmm .... Nice!
