    I did some inlay work with the brass knucks. I gotta find some dark epoxy or paint or something to fill in the voids around the outside. Oh, and I totally busted out some new strings! Ernie Ball Cobalt Flats!

    Just wondering if that baby will be used for a hardcore punk band or Sunday worship sessions? :laugh:

    I rarely buy anything new from a Local Shop. I get most everything online thru the internet.
    It was crazy ! They usually sell for $129.99 and Musicians Friend, whom I got the Bass from, had them on sale for $87.99 and when I added it to my cart it suddenly showed $70.16, with a note stating "Special in cart pricing". Undeserved Blessing's is what I contribute it to.

    The Fender molded case was/is $179.99 US.

    My Sandberg "Forty Eight" .... Jumped through hoops to score this bad boy. They are difficult model to find in the USA. She's a MONSTER of a bass ... Sandberg basses (IMO) are some of the finest mass produced basses being made today.

    I don't play her as often as I should because I just don't feel comfortable rocking an "explorer" body shape ... It's like changing from old Levi's to skinny jeans :roflmao: "Old dog, new tricks" kind of thing.

    I may be putting her up for sale soon ... She should be played more and shown off often. YMMV

  6. Same here. but I'd wanted one of those cases for ages and thought Id get myself a Christmas pressie.
    Oh that's the other way around to here then - the moulded cases are cheaper than the tweed ones.
    It looks like the tweed ones are also cheaper here than thare, and that is quite a surprise.

  7. Them be wicked.

    I like them a lot.

    I fantasize about having one with reverse headstock with matching paintwork.
    Got to be in that same red as yours though.

  12. I'm going to get some T-Shirts printed up that say 'Suck My Socks'
    Will you want to buy one of those as well? I'll throw in a free pair of the socks . . .

    Love my Forty Eight!

    They are definitely difficult to come by in the USA, I don't see enough of them around. I can attest to mine being an absolute monster as well!

    Wow, that is gorgeous in white, especially with the matching headstock ... She's a beauty!

    Thanks!! I saw it on Thomann and lusted over it for a few weeks before finally deciding to go for it. Really glad I did.. I couldn't believe how perfect the config of this bass was for my visual taste. It's as though I custom ordered it, there isn't a thing I would've done differently.

    I have some basses I think are really good looking, but this one still gets me every time. Just something about it... Love the design

    On that note... Love the white 4003 you posted above. Beautiful :woot:. I'm partial to that color combo as you may have guessed by my Sandberg (and 2 other basses, lol) but that is one of the coolest looks for a Ric IMO.

    You can have #1 in "The Sandberg Forty Eight mutual admiration club", I'll take #2 :)

    Deal! As long as I get #1 in the "I'd rather have BK bassist's 4003 than mine" club :D

    Seriously though, I think you should rock that red Forty Eight with confidence. It's a beauty, and I bet it doesn't look as strange on as you feel like it does. I'm not sure I'd want the Forty Eight as my only bass, but I love it as a contrast to my more traditional styled stuff (Ps, Js)
