I actually had this one since Xmas. Since the prices for used and new Sandbergs in the US are rather ridiculously high (why, I don't know), I bought this one on German eBay for 900$ and had it shipped to my parents in Germany. I picked it up when I visited for the holidays and took off the neck and put the bass in my suitcase. Tight fit but it made it to the States unscathed. I really like the feel of the Sandberg and it handles better than my MIM Fender Jazz.
