Sandberg California II VM4 in Black & Chrome  – Special “Classic and Cool Guitars” Edition number 3
This bass is a bit special. Factory built by Sandberg to my personal specifications, this VS4 has some unique touches which makes it a different, eye-catching one-off.
It’s in Black & Chrome, with some parts black and others chrome, but the detailing is quite subtle. For example, the tuners have chrome keys but black screws holding them in place, and is perfectly offset by the special satin black headstock, likewise the bridge is chrome but the saddles are black. This theme continues throughout the bass.
It has also been ordered with an Ebony fretboard and pearl block fret markers plus the satin black headstock – all are extra cost options, but really help with the look of the bass.
I accept that it won’t be to everyone’s taste, but I’ve always tried to stock basses that I really like, in the hope that someone else will agree – it’s a policy which has kept me in business for over 14 years.
However, looks are just one part of this bass – the other becomes apparent when you play it: lovely fast neck, low action, it really is easy and rewarding to play.
Also, it comes fitted with Sandberg Black label pick up’s These are Sandberg’s own design to give a punchier sound, initially developed with Ida Nielsen.
Great tone from the renowned Sandberg 2 eq system (the bass can also be played in passive mode simply by pulling up the volume control)
It’s brand new and comes complete with the Sandberg gig bag, tools and manual.
(Please note: the plastic protective film is still on the scratchplate which give it a slight blue hue in the pictures – it will look its best after removal)
Different, cool and restrained, and one of a kind….
