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.

Hi , would you post in UK ?

 

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

      After a tortuous 6 months of waiting, I finally received my new Sandberg yesterday! 😊
      It's everything I hoped it would be, lightweight, has that incredible sandberg neck feel and effortless playability, and the passive electronics with more traditional style Alnico V pickups are giving me the pure, organic tone I was after. Couldn't be happier! 
      The new Sandberg gigbags are a cast improvement in my opinion too, really nice. 
      Happy chappy. 😊👌

      For sale is my Sandberg California VM5 Supreme which I have owned from new and which comes with a Gator hard case.
       
       
      The Supreme versions of the VM5 have the additional features over the base models:
      -          - Matched headstock
      -          - Pearl block inlays
      -          - High gloss finish
       
       
      I also ordered mine with a 3-band preamp instead of the usual 2-band.
       
       
      More info:
      https://www.sandberg-guitars.de/basses/sandberg-california-v-series/#1538825801905-34a97c3e-cf2f
       
       
      Condition:
      Very good, there are a couple of tiny marks on the headstock and one near the input jack.
      The bass was my main gigging bass for a few years until my Shuker took its place, since then it’s mainly just been used as a backup, sitting on a stand.
       
       

       
      Payment:
      Cash, PayPal or bank transfer please. I live in Sutton-in-Ashfield, north Nottinghamshire, UK and would be willing to meet part-way if collection in person is preferred (also my preferred method). Alternatively I can ship this.
       
       
      Thanks for looking.

      Sandberg MarloweDK California 4 string bass. Series 2. As original. Comes with the proper Sandberg soft case.
      No hyperbole needed. A quality bit of kit.

      Alder Body (Vibration treated), Maple Neck, Pau Ferro Board, Pearloid Inlays, Custom wound Alnico Pickups, Nickel Hardware, 38mm neck at nut, Weight: 8lbs 3lbs ’ish’
      Condition is as ‘new’ 😂. It’s never ever been dropped or banged, and has been kept in a hard case when not being played. I’ve gigged it, but I manage not to fall over or fight with drum kits.
      Bass is in Cheltenham. Will come in the proper Sandberg softcase. UPS to mainland UK for £30, or arrange a local meet/collection. I’ve a proper bass box etc
      £950. I’ve no need to sell, so please no daft/disingenuous offers.

      Hey everyone, here I have an original Jazz style California TM-5 from Sandberg out of Germany.

      These things are hand built and given a whole lotta love in the factory, Sandberg are known for absolutely killer basses, versatile and way more bang for your buck than many out there. This specific bass is when they still used the traditional Jazz and Precision body shapes.

      Trades: Ideally looking for a passive jazz or a 5 string P but hey, show me anything, I may be interested!
       
      Based In Finchley (LONDON)
      Body: Alder Neck: Maple Fretboard: Rosewood Scale: 34" long scale 22 Frets Pickup: 1 Delano J-Style and 1 Delano Power Humbucker PU Split Sandberg 2-band EQ Active passive Chrome hardware Tortoise pickguard Colour: 3-tone sunburst hardcore aged

      Selling this wonderful Sandberg California 2 TM4 as I am not using it much (spending more time with a Sandberg California TT4 Fretless).
      It has seen mainly home and practice room use and is in excellent condition. There are just a few very minor scratches which can be seen in the pictures below. It sounds excellent and can go from jazz bass to MM tones very easily. The preamp is natural-sounding and can be bypassed by via an onboard switch. Comes with a high quality Sandberg padded gigbag.
      Collection in Hackney, London or shipment at buyer's expense. Thanks for looking.
      Specs:
      Neck: 6 bolted / canadian hardrock maple
      Fretboard: 22 frets, Rosewood
      Scale: 34”
      Finish: Matt, Ash Body
      Hardware: Sandberg
      Pickup: 1 delano JMVC, 1 delano MCFE / PU-split
      Preamp: sandberg 2-band, active/passive, passive tone control
