**TRADED** Sandberg California I JJ4 Hardcore Aged
Buwell, Cambridgeshire

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

EDIT: Now traded - thanks for all the interest 👍


Hi all,

Picked this up in a trade with @timmchale2009 last year but I've got a serious hankering for a Dingwall and one of the jazz basses have to go to make room/free up some cash!

Had a full set-up from the chaps over at Miller's in Cambridge and a fresh set of strings at Christmas.

I'll also throw in the Gator hard case which is basically new if I get asking price - happy to knock £50 off the price if the case isn't needed (and it's collected).

Collection preferred but I'm happy to ship at the buyers expense and risk.

Some specs  (shamelessly copied from the previous ad):

Made in Germany in 2011.
Spectacular looking and lovely to play.
Great tone. All the usual sounds you’d expect from a “Jazz” bass but with extra depth and clarity if you want it.
2 – piece Ash body
6 bolt maple neck with rosewood fretboard
22 frets
Zero fret
34” scale
 2 Delano Jazz type pickups
Sandberg bridge
Sandberg tuners
2- band active/ passive pre amp : 
Controls are: Volume push-pull / Balance / Bass / Treble
Weight 9.2lbs

Original ad which also show some photos with the tort pickguard on: 

Let me know if there're any questions!

I'm currently in talks for buying a Dingwall so ideally - cash, but if something really tickles my pickle I may go for it - try me!

      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.
      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

      Used Sandberg TT5 in 9/10 condition! 
      This bass is really light and punchy. Just had a fresh set of strings on. Comes with the Sandberg gigbag. 
      This is my last bass, but sadly finances are not good so I need to find some cash from somewhere and not much else is moving in this current climate. With that in mind I would be interested in trades as long as I’m still getting a decent amount of cash from the deal (so no swaps etc) thinking along the lines squires etc.

      Sandberg Custom Ken Taylor
      Bought from Neil Murray on this forum as a bass to get back into playing with.  Its genuinely excellent but I am moving to a P bass as it will suit my current bands more and it is the sound I hear in my head for bass lines.
      Currently strung with EB Cobalts and it sounds brilliant. Would like get back what I paid for it at 795. Not interested in trades as I have my eye on a bass already. Would cost considerably more to get one specced this well from Sandberg. 
      Details taken from Neil's thread here >>> Previous Sale
      "I had this built to my specifications, from the choices on the Sandberg website. Home use only. There are plenty of small dings and marks, which is Sandberg’s interpretation of ’soft aged finish’, which wasn’t what I was expecting - I would preferred either more obvious relicing or a perfect finish.
      Of course a great sounding bass, enhanced by the high-quality Demeter preamp.
      Basic Ken Taylor model
      Body: European ash (I think)
      Top: Imbuia with matched headstock
      Soft aged finish
      Rosewood neck
      2 Sandberg powerhumbuckers, black metal covers, split coil on bridge pickup
      Electronics: Demeter BEQP-1 Bass EQ Preamplifier - active balance control which mixes two pickups and provides active equalisation for treble, middle and bass. The treble and bass are both shelving controls with 14dB of boost and cut @ 6dB per octave. The middle control is a peak control with plus and minus 12dB of cut and boost @ 6dB per octave.
      Black hardware with Hipshot Bass Xtender on E machine head 
      Abalone front face dots
      Sandberg gig bag"
