Ich habe schon seit fast 15 Jahren einen Sandberg Basic 5 PM (als er noch so heißen durfte) und war höchst zufrieden. Der Basic hat in der Zwischenzeit einen Fender Jazz 5 Deluxe und einen Fender P Custom Shop zerstört.
Eigentlich hatte ich schon aufgegeben, der Forty-Eight hat mich aber optisch so gereizt, dass ich ihn zumindest ausprobieren musste - mit der Erwartung, er wird gegen den Basic sicher nicht besser sein.
Nach zwei Bandproben muss ich festhalten: Der Basic hat jetzt viel mehr Freizeit.

Das Ding sieht einfach nach Rock'n'Roll aus (frei nach Hank Moody "als ob Phil Lynot mal draufgekotzt hätte"), fühlt sich extrem wertig an und klingt vor allem extrem hochwertig und ausgewogen.

Für dreckigen Rock kann ich mir weder optisch noch vom Sound her etwas besseres vorstellen.

Habe schon immer einen 5 Saiter Thunderbird gesucht, der nicht zu kopflastig ist. Einzige Alternative bisher Mike Lull, kostet aber über 4000¤ und ist hierzulande eigentlich nicht zu bekommen.
Nun hab ich Ihn durch Zufall in diesem Sandberg 48 gefunden. Sah echt cool aus und ich dachte den probier ich mal.Hab Ihn ausgepackt in die Hand genommen und das war es. Traumhaftes Hals C-Profil, kaum kopflastig. Gewicht 4,8 Kg (für einen 5 Saiter echt ok). Der Sound ist ein Traum, durch den Balance Regler und den Bass und Höhen Regler kann man so ziemlich alles an Sound einstellen, was man zum Rockbass spielen braucht. Auch passiv macht er einen guten Sound. Selbst ohne Amp klingt er schön knurrig und warm und rotzig. Filigrane Bassisten sollten lieber zu etwas anderem greifen, aber für Rock und Blues hat das Ding einen Traumsound. Pickups Hals Splitcoil wie beim Preci, Steg Humbucker.
Der Bass war top eingestellt. Auch im Sitzen lässt er sich super gemütlich spielen.
Das Aging hätte ich jetzt nicht gebraucht, zumal es 670 ¤ teurer war, aber ungeaged war er leider noch nicht lieferbar und wäre zumindest nicht thermobehandelt gewesen. Ob das was bringt, weiß ich nicht, hatte keinen Vergleich, aber so wie er ist, ist er ein Traum. Also alles gut. Man muß so ein Ding in die Hand nehmen und sich direkt wohl fühlen, sonst lässt man es besser. Das Aging hat den Vorteil, daß man nicht so aufpassen muß und sich nicht über Kratzer ärgert, überlege sogar, ob ich mir die Oberkante im hinteren Bereich vom Gitarrenbauer ein wenig runder schleifen lasse. Angenehmer für den Unterarm. Jetzt hätte ich nur noch einen Wunsch an Sandberg. Den gleichen Bass in Surf- green mit Maple Hals und Block Inlays dann aber doch auch Hardcore Reserve geaged. Eine kleine Anmerkung noch ab dem 17. Bund wird es schwierig mit der Bespielbarkeit, aber wer einen Thunderbird spielt, der weiß, daß das für die Form normal ist. Ich bin happy nach den ersten 4 Gigs und werde den Bass noch viele Jahre live bei Mallet einsetzen.
