    Did I post this one? Can't find it, apologies if you've seen it before...
    Sandberg TM5, goldplated, from 2006 or something, a bass I come back to again and again, it is an amazing bass (though a bit heavier than "modern" Sandbergs). 1185973_10151613833103458_292315532_n.

    Thanks!
    It's callded "gold plated" and you can find it under "optional" in the configfurator:)
    It is actual gold foil over a red base coat, then clearcoated, looks even better in person and works wonderfully on stage:)

    I would love to see it! :hyper: edit: oups it' s goldy! Wow!!!!!!!

    Are you sure about your year?


    Hi folks :)

    My " Bullet Special" (see pic in post #1570) has a 23xx number. I recieved it new in summer 2004!

    I won' t forget the year, Holger Stonjek showed me his workshop.

    Sandberg were building around 300 to 350 basses per year back then.

    So a bass in the 21xx can be an early 2004 or a late 2003. :)


    glad I could help!
