Sandberg California II VM4 in Black & Chrome – Special “Classic and Cool Guitars” Edition
This bass is a bit special. Factory built by Sandberg to my personal specifications, this VM4 has some unique touches which makes it a different, eye-catching one-off.
It’s in black and 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 white pearl blocks – both these items are expensive extra cost options, but really help with the look of the bass.
I was pretty excited to receive this bass as I was really looking forward to seeing it, and when I first saw it, thought it looks brilliant and even better than I had hoped!
