    Highly underrated, and perhaps undiscovered Sandberg Classic Booster. For me, I was able to achieve more traditional tones from this bass than the other Sandberg I had, which was a TM-2. The placement of these two pickups is unique for Sandberg, and the pre-amp functions differently than the more common Sandbergs. To me it's a winner. This Classic Booster is nearly perfect. Very little handling at all, as I only dabble in Bass, and only in my home studio, alone. It comes with a near-perfect Sandberg gig-bag as well. The body shape is remarkably comfortable, balances nicely, and weighs a reasonable 9.2 LBS. It is 34" scale, and it has 24 frets. The neck is Jazz-bass thin, and the fingerboard is Ebony. A beauty!! REALLY LOOKING FOR A SALE, BUT NOW OPEN TO TRADE IDEAS. I DON'T REALLY NEED ANYTHING, BUT AM OPEN TO YOUR CREATIVE IDEAS, INCLUDING SYNTHESIZERS AND GUITARS AS WELL AS BASSES.
    Price includes shipping in the CONUS. You should not be disappointed with this bass. I love it, but as usual, I have run out of room and am pairing back yet another time.
    Here's a page from Sandberg's site. It doesn't exactly represent my bass it's more generic info to the model.

    Good luck with your sale! You can actually get a pretty decent P sound out of this Sandberg, as well as the more cutting edge Sandberg "active" tones.

    Man, I've been poking around the past day or two looking to update my current 35" 4-string. This one would be real nice!

    Are those pickups 100mm (3.95") x 32mm (1.25")?

    I would say so. Using my inexpensive caliper, they measure 100.5mm x 32.5. The pickup cavities themselves are a hair larger than that, to accommodate the pickups themselves.

    If you would like I could post photos using the caliper.

    It's a 34" scale. They do have an option for 35" but this doesn't appear to have that option.

    I stand corrected. Scale is 34". My blunder. Now corrected in my listing.

    Bump for a very cool bass. If I hadn't just invested in a new rig I would probably be in on this one!

    I know I didn't list this for trades, but I'm always open to unusual ideas. For the right unusual idea, I could supplement with $$. Perhaps for an AC, Lull, Nordy, etc. Would have to be passive 5'er Jazz Bass, ot another 2 P/U situation that was passive.

    Thanks for the question, but based on your post above I don't have anything that fits the bill. Good luck regardless!
