Here we have a gorgeous & totally mint example of this Sandberg Panther Special, 4-String Mahogany Bass w/ Bocote Top, Rosewood Fretboard & Abalone Dots.
This bass is a gorgeous example of German build quality. It has the feel of a hand made bass and plays beautifully. It is very much a modern bass. It’s stylish looks are not traditional and nor is it’s tone. It really is the sum of it’s parts. High quality and a little different. There is no playwear or damage anywhere & she comes with her Sandberg padded gig bag & all candy & adjustment tools.
Sandberg Panther Special, 4-String Mahogany Bass w/ Bocote Top, Rosewood Fretboard & Abalone Dots
Only the very best is good enough for Sandberg, so when it comes to their hand-crafted guitars and basses you understand that you’re not paying for “just another instrument”, you’re actually making a sound financial investment in a work of art that has been made with more than a little blood, sweat, tears and love. Not only that but with the number of variations available from the company (numbering well into the thousands) you’re almost guaranteed to be owning something that’s truly unique, or so rare that the odds of you seeing exactly the same one elsewhere are so miniscule that you wouldn’t want to bet on it.
A touch of exotic class to
With the Sandberg Panther Special bass guitars the company go that one step further to add a litlte extra class in the way of exotic wood tops and uniquely angled pickups. This particular model is made from a solid mahogany body adorned with a rare Bocote wood top and matching headstock, Rosewood fretboard with abalone dot inlay markers, and all black Sandberg hardware.
The black, angled shielding (designed by Delano) over the pickups carefully disguises the fact that the mid-position pickup isn’t a humbucker at all: it is in fact a Sandberg designed Split Coil P-Bass style pickup!
Both pickups house larger-than-usual poles to accurately grab and process all string movements with zero loss. Just imagine: a meaty P-Bass style tone with an in-your-face Stingray type attack and you’ll get an idea of just how awesome the Split coil pickup is. Then there’s the excellent Powerhumbucker. This humbucker is based heavily around the popular Stingray style humbucker pickup shape, with a fat and grinding tone.
Use both pickups together, or individually, to produce a wide array of excellent tones, and explore their sonic possibilities further with the onboard Preamp system.
Sandberg 3-band Preamp
The preamp circuitry on the Panther Special is just as crafty as the pickups. What initially looks like a standard setup has a clever little surprise in store, in the shape of a push/pull Volume control knob that allows you to set the preamp to Active or Passive. Next to the Volume control you have the Balance control, which acts as a nice pickup selector “Blend” option, where you can determine the level of each pickup in the mix (centre position has both pickups running at 100%, or turn the control in the direction of the pickup you want to be at the forefront to make it so). The Treble control allows you to either boost the Treble or cut the tone, which works even in passive mode! Then there’s the Middle control, giving you plenty of tweaking power over the mid-range frequencies. And finally there’s the Bass control, which works in the same way as the Treble control (without the passive cut) but for your low-end frequencies. Exciting stuff!
Made to be Played
With the ergonomic and solidly constructed chassis, this guitar is most certainly one that you could grace a stage with. The curvature of this relatively lightweight body rests comfortably against you as you play, making even the longest of shows and studio sessions pass by that bit quicker. Add that to the perfect sounding tonal spectrum supplied by the solid wood body and awesome electronics system, and you will fast be running out of reasons NOT to buy it!
