Sold. Sandberg California 1, VM4, Soft Core Aged, 2016, metallic blue
£1000
Darlington

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

NOW £950 cash price (collected or meet within 100 miles of Darlington)

£950 couriered IF  buyer organises & pays for courier

£1100 trade value.

 

2016, with Sandberg gig bag, OR cheapo, flimsier than the Fender version (but good condition) tweed style hard case.

The colour is similar to the Mark 11 Steve Harris Precision

Weight  8lb 6oz. Hand aged by Sandberg's staff. This spec on a Mark 11 would be over £1700.

Plek'd, zero fret, 40mm nut, so between P & J specs, vol (active/passive, push/pull), pan, treble (which also acts as a tone control in passive mode), bass.

6 bolt Canadian Rock Maple neck, rosewood board, light Ash body. I bought some sticky marker dots for the fretboard, but didn't need them. They are included in the sale.

I gig share in a band so I'm not going to be out much when we finally return. 3 very expensive basses is a luxury I don't need at the moment, hence the sale.

Will meet within 100 mile radius of Darlington, social distancing to be observed. NO BOX to courier in, sorry.

Lovely bass, reluctant sale so please don't think anybody will hammer me down, happy to keep it for a while yet.

Feedback linked at end of advert, keep safe & thanks for looking.

All PM's replied.

Apparently "sale only" means feel free to offer any trade you fancy 😆

I was admittedly rather tempted by a classy looking Stingray. Oops.

What’s the reasoning behind the reversed P pickup in their 2-pickup models when the single-pickup version has it in standard configuration? And how does it differ?

Tightens up the lower strings a little in their sound and their M or J models provide some clarity to help it bite through the mix.

The VS4 was left as is, probably to stay traditional.

Their Forty Eight is not 2 humbuckers but a VM configuration like the bass listed above, but sounds different likely due to slight positional variance and body wood mass

Tonal variation across the range is what it gives

I have to add that VM4 is actually Hölgers fave bass

There follows a copy & paste from my Facebook advert, couple of guys discussing this bass. All public domain, on my sales advert.
 
Gary Abell That’s my old bass 👍
Alan Jolliffe She's a beauty
Gary Abell Alan Jolliffe really sorry I let it go but the pull of the 69 custom shop P was too much and couldn’t justify both , it truly is a stunning bass used it in loads of studios sounds awesome, someone’s getting a killer bass there 
 
Alan Jolliffe Gary Abell if times were different my name could well be on this.... my mate plays Sandbergs and can't speak highly enough of them.... as my band's not gigging at mo can't justify buying another bass even if I sold my other 2 to fund it . 
no gigs means no new basses. She is a beaut tho
 
 
 
Nice words indeed 🙂

Gob smacked noones took the plunge with this one yet. Stunning colour body and the neck shades spot on. And whats not to like about MM + p pups. If there was such a thing, this would be called military spec, fully armed to the teeth, for any battle, breaking through any frontline (mix) with thunder 🤣

Lots of trade offers.

3 folk "if I can sell X in time".

I may be able to courier by the end of the week, however if it doesn't go in the next few days I may remove & keep it.

You might think I'm a bit of a ******* for not selling the LE Roasted, but once I withdraw they usually stay that way.

Ask the two lads who regularly mail me about my CS Dusty Hill. Withdrawn about 2 years ago & staying that way 😁

Nah not at all mate, us musicians are creatures of a higher power. Who knows what drives us 🤣. If it hadnt have been for this shitty virus i would be looking at it, but in context i,m only without a bass, many have have lost much more through this. Sure as hell one will come up sooner or later buddy. Hope this goes for you. Top man

      As per title, 1st year run from when they changed from painted necks. Completely original. DAFT price now, for one as good as this, imo, especially for our continental friends.
      Its in reasonable nick for a 32 year old bass that gets gigged regularly, stipled paintwork on the back, the photos actually make it look better than it is.
      Weight is 8lbs 8ozs. Obligatory Duff McKagan mention.
      Still has the little F caps on the rotaries, neck, truss, electrics fine, original slightly larger pole pups. Fender gig bag.
       
      COURIER. Buyer to organise/pay for own courier, just tell me when it's getting picked up.
      EUROPE. This is an even better buy now & I will ship to Europe but ONLY  under the following terms.
      Buyer bank transfers £520 (GBP). WHEN payment HAS CLEARED in my account, buyer to then arrange own courier.
       
      Rest assured this bass will be well packed & in advertised condition when it is collected, but I no longer have the time or facility to chase couriers up in the unlikely event something goes wrong. Apologies but any buyer needs to accept that term & responsibility. Please see my linked 6 pages of feedback.
      The last photo shows the bass photobombing the drummers pic from last nights gig 
      Any trial in Wigan, will travel to meet up.
      thanks for looking,
      Karl.

      Part of big fundraising effort for 73/74/75 Precision, as all trades offered ( a lot) on the Status, have not been quite right.
      As per title, 1st year run from when they changed from painted necks. Lots of little dinks etc, stipled paintwork on the back, the photos actually make it look better than it is.
      Obligatory Duff McKagan mention.
      Still has the little F caps on the rotaries, neck, truss, electrics fine, original slightly larger pole pups. Comes in crap case held together by gaffer tape. Some daft prices getting asked for these, I think I'm asking fair for buyer & seller.
      None the less it's in reasonable nick for a 30 year old bass, it will be getting gigged tonight. Weight is 8lbs 8ozs.
      SORRY I AM NOT IN A POSITION TO COURIER!
      Any trial in Wigan, will travel to meet up, feedback linked below,

      Probably the most reluctant of the 3 basses I now have for sale.
      Part of big fundraising effort for 73/74/75 Precision, as all trades offered ( a lot) on the Status, have not been quite right.
      As per title, 2011, these were the slightly cheaper American range (think after Traditional, California, Highway One Highway 1 etc.
      They do have graphite neck reinforcement, they don't have High Mass Bridge, Custom Shop pups, hardcase, etc (comes with usual cheap"Deluxe" Fender gigbag).
      The neck is a slightly slimmer (back to front) than the US Standards of the time. The body is also 1/8th of an inch thinner thn the US Standards, hence weight of 8lbs 6oz.
      This bass is in very good condition.
      Lots of info on T******S
      SORRY I AM NOT IN A POSITION TO COURIER!
      Any trial in Wigan, will travel to meet up, feedback linked below,
      thanks for looking,

      As per title.
      Specs
      https://barefacedbass.com/product-range/Big-Baby-2.htm
      May 2018 build, excellent condition with Roqsolid slip cover, Athletic stand & badly cut up laptop tray.
      OBVIOUSLY the Mesa IS NOT INCLUDED IN THE PRICE!!!!, it is there for illustration purposes only.
      Collect from Wigan through the week, or will hold for meet on a weekend (£50 bank transfer deposit required, sorry but been messed about too much this last year).
      Only selling because I'm through the PA all the time, so, I have bought two of the new Orange cabs purely for looks! I'm old, I'm wasting no more time, I want pretty .
      Feedback linked below,
      thanks for looking,

      Purchased from the splendid Alain (EAD) of this parish.
      With Sandberg gig bag, very good condition, passive with Ki0Gon wiring loom, running V/V/T.
      Original loom, chrome knobs & black pup covers all included.
      COURIER, I can only get this done on a Saturday collection. Buyer would need to organise & pay for it. 
      Sorry, no trades.
      I love this bass but I've just spent BIG STYLE on a CS Dusty Hill Gold Top Relic.
      If my CS Precision goes before this, this will be removed.
      Thanks for looking,
      Karl.
