  1. I find that the Delanos work really well with flatwounds. The highs are still there, and lots of warmth from the flats.

    Hi redwood,
    Cool looking bass indeed. Is that rosewood or ebony fingerboard ?

    It's ebony. Looks and feels wonderful. I'm in love. Don't tell my wife. ;)
    Initially I thought about changing out the pickguard for a white pearloid to match the inlays, but I think I'll stick with the tort. It gives the bass a certain...something. I love the aesthetics of it....and the feel.......I'm not sure I'm worthy.

    Anybody know anything about this Sandberg bass? I've been looking for info on it for 2 years and have never seen one like it. Sandburg Fretless.

    Hi Dean :)

    This is a "Classic" Booster (formerly " Bullet" Booster)

    (They changed the name, when they started to sell basses in the U.S., to avoid trouble with Fender' s lawyers)

    You can find it on this link!

    Have fun!

    may the bass be with you

    Hi, Sandberg guys.

    I'm about to order my first custom Sandberg ( MV4 hardcore aged alder) and will be sending my first payment soon... I'm still decidng between RW or ebony for the fretboard.

    In your experience with Sandberg basses: is it ebony maybe too bright? Or any difference compared to RW is minimal soundwise ?

    I love both RW and ebony... I think the latter would look cooler on the color combo I'll order, but have never played a Sandberg with an ebony board to A/B

    Any info/experience is highly appreciated.

  14. What pickups are you ordering? That may be as important as the wood selection.

    Sandberg pickups since I like that vintage vibe as compared to the others
  16. I haven't played a Sandberg with an ebony fretboard, but I do have two basses with ebony fretboards and love the way they feel and look. IMHO it is hard to tell if they sound any different to my basses with rosewood fretboard. If it was my decision, I'd go with what looks best.

    Are you going to get a Masterpiece with aged fretboard?

    Can't wait to see your NBD post. Can you post a picture from the configurator to wet our appetites?

    Sure. These are my two options:

    I like the hardcore aged finish and even I like the feel and look of an used neck. But I'm not into aged fretboards...

    The vibration treatment can be done on the bass and still show a regular fretboard, right? (But I would have to ask another quote on that and I guess it might be too much)

    Have you considered the fumed oak option?

    The fingerboards on Sandbergs are quite thick and, in my experience, have a appreciable influence on tone. The fumed oak is apparently somewhere between rosewood and maple and looks great (at least, in my opinion).
    I've not owned or tried an ebony f/b Sandberg though.
