Hey, Sandberg Bass Owners!
Hello fellow Sandberg owners. I was interested in hearing your stories of how you first heard of Sandberg Basses since they are still relatively unknown in the US.
I first heard and saw one on Youtube watching Prince do a bass solo with (what I thought) was a Fender P bass deluxe since I sometimes see him with a Fender Jazz bass but noticed that it wasn't. I investigated and found out that it belonged to his bass player Ida Neilsen. I searched high and low and found one after about 7 months of searching in the US to test one. BLEW ME AWAY because I was still new to the bass and tested soooooooooooo many basses (I was following the advice of Talkbass members). But I couldn't afford it at the time. ($2100 at Alto's Music). But one popped up at Guitar Center and I happened to have the doe. (my last dime actually but I didn't care....I wanted that bass!)
So tell us how you stumbled on to your Sandberg (I guess this is mainly for US members since they are more popular overseas).
