God grant mercy

19.01.2017
I have been a Sandberg Basic 5 PM for almost 15 years (as it was still hot) and was very satisfied. The Basic has in the meantime destroyed a Fender Jazz 5 Deluxe and a Fender P Custom Shop.
Actually, I had already given up, but the Forty-Eight was so appealing to me that I had to try it at least - with the expectation that he will not be better against the Basic.
After two tape samples I have to hold: The Basic now has much more free time.

The thing just looks like Rock'n'Roll (free to Hank Moody "as if Phil Lynot had drackgekotzt"), feels extremely valuable and above all extremely high quality and balanced.

For dirty rock I can imagine neither optically nor from the sound something better.

A rocker`s dream comes true

Mallet, 19.08.2016
Have always been looking for a 5-string Thunderbird, which is not too copflastig. The only alternative so far is Mike Lull, but costs more than 4000¤ and is not enough to get here.
Now I found Him by chance in this Sandberg 48. Looked really cool and I thought the try I times.Hab Him taken unpacked in the hand and that was it. Dreamlike neck C-profile, hardly copflastig. Weight 4,8 Kg (for a 5 string real ok). The sound is a dream, with the balance control and the bass and treble controls, you can adjust just about everything you need to play the rock bass. Also passively he makes a good sound. Even without an amp, it sounds nice, gruff, warm and snotty. Filigree bass players should prefer to grab something else, but for rock and blues the thing has a dream sound. Pickups Neck Splitcoil as with the Preci, bridge humbucker.
The bass was top set. He can also sit comfortably while sitting.
The Aging I would not have used now, especially since it was 670 ¤ more expensive, but unaged it was unfortunately not yet available and would be at least not thermobehandlung. Whether that brings something, I do not know, had no comparison, but as it is, it is a dream. So all good. You have to take such a thing in your hand and feel right at home, otherwise you leave it better. The Aging has the advantage that one does not have to be so careful and not annoyed by scratches, even consider whether I let the upper edge in the rear area of ??the guitar builder a little round grind. Pleasant for the forearm. Now I have only one wish at Sandberg. The same bass in surf green with maple neck and block inlays but then also hardcore reserve geaged. A little note from the 17th Bund will make it difficult to play, but if you play a Thunderbird, you know it's normal for that form. I'm happy after the first 4 gigs and will continue to use the bass live for many years at Mallet.
