Premium-Grade 5-String, With a Hard Rockin' Attitude

If you purchase a Sandberg Bass, it's not just another instrument: it's an investment in your musical career. Each of these basses are hand made from the finest of woods, and come packed full of premium-grade features.

In the case of this particular Sandberg Forty Eight you get a gorgeous, uniquely-shaped bass, with a matte redburst finish, rosewood fingerboard, and fantastic electronics system.

These bass guitars are relatively lightweight, and surprisingly comfortable to play whether standing or sitting. In addition to this, the sleek Hard Rock Maple neck is shaped with a "C"-profile, offering a comfortable playing experience with the minimal amount of hand fatigue.

And that's before we've gotten onto how it sounds.

Versatile Electronics

Sitting in the Middle and Bridge positions on this Sandberg Forty Eight you get a set of powerful Sandberg pickups.

At the bridge there's an "M"-style humbucker, that delivers all of the bite and thickness generally associated with this pickup type. In the middle there's a Split-Coil "P"-style pickup, that delivers a truly thunderous array of bass tones.

Each of these pickups can be used individually, or mixed together, thanks to the independent volume controls built into an active preamp.

Also on this preamp there's a 2-band Bass and Treble EQ control-set, giving you a relatively straightforward method of shaping your tone once the volume is set.

Go On, Treat Yourself!

Due to the relatively unique nature of Sandberg instruments - the number of customisations available is literally stunning - it's safe to say that if you bought one you'd likely never see another like it.

With that in mind, it's worth contacting our Online Sales Team today if you'd like to query its availability - they're always happy to help.

Alternatively, if your mind is already made up, simply place your order Online today and choose from our fantastic range of Home Delivery options.
