    This bass is in excellent shape with no issues that I am aware of.

    Here is a video of a similar Sandberg.


    I think it has the punchy growl of a Music Man when you want and a nice Jazz Tone when you want, or a combination of the two. My understanding is that the bridge pickup is actually two separate pickups, one position it is the Music Man MM pickup and in the other it is the Jazz Coil (T) pickup. Pull the volume knob for passive and push for active. When passive, the treble knob also serves as a passive tone (Cut).
