BUY ONE IMMEDIATELY. I just got back from NAMM and they were by far one of the best basses I played there. I just kept returning to their booth and playing one after another expecting at least one of them to suck, but they were all flucking incredible even their $1,000 budget bass. I had them run it through a couple different amps too, just to make sure I wasn't getting duped by a killer rig, but it sounded almost exactly the same through both setups. Their sound is spectacular, but what really sealed the deal for me was how they feel. You don't even need to plug it in to feel how absolutely perfect they play. I can't speak enough good about these. Only Ritter and Mattison basses really compared, but those are really different instruments. I think if nothing else Sandberg has found the end of the super P & super J rainbows.
