This brand new Sandberg Superlight has just arrived, never had one before, and wow, I’m super-impressed….
It’s a Sandberg California II TM4 Superlight in matt black. This is a very new version where the body is made from Paulownia wood. This is a very light wood but has great resonance and attack.
The first Superlight’s were made from Cedar – these were still very light but the wood had a very open grain and didn’t wear particularly well. This new wood is a big improvement. Obviously still softer then alder or ash, but not that you’d really notice. Also, Sandberg supply a transparent sticker to go above the pick up if you wanted extra protection from thumb marks etc
The neck on this one is made from flame maple with a Norway maple fretboard. The contrast in colours between the 2 woods is lovely, and the fretboard has nice figuring which makes it unusual and unique.
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.
Ordered with the option of black block inlays (extra cost) and a parchment scratchplate.
The bass weighs 6lbs which probably makes it one of the lightest bass I’ve ever had.
Sandberg’s lead-time is now 10 months so this is a good opportunity to buy one of these at a good price without the wait.
