NBD Sandberg TM

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by thorstiborsti, Feb 14, 2016.

  1. 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.

    I like Sandbergs.
    I am curious about their masterpiece option in custom shop. I heard a guy playing a California like yours on a shop and was better than any fender he played before.
  5. I think the Masterpiece option is just in regards to the aging/relicing of the bass. The wood of the body/neck are aged in a special way and so is every little detail like the hardware etc. I never saw a masterpiece bass in person but I bet they are sweet. I also have a VM which I love as well

    Sandberg makes great basses. The masterpiece is supposed to have heat treatment and also a vibration treatment. But to be honest, I have a soft aged TT5 and a masterpiece TM5 and I cant really tell a difference soundwise other than one being a Jazz and the other having a humbucker. The masterpiece finish is insane if you're into relics. Hands down my favorite basses. Contemplating selling some gear to order a forty eight too.
