Sandberg Basses

Let’s talk Sandberg here! A place to present your Sandberg basses, share your experiences, ask questions or shop-talk.

I start off with my California II VM4, Nighthawk. P-Bass style, alder body, maple neck with rosewood fretboard.

My California TT4 Superlight. The local dealer took these nice pictures of it, once it reached their shop. Paulownia body, maple neck, birdseye maple fingerboard:



Very nice.

This is the ‘Ladyhawk’ (my name). She is a California VM4, has an Ash Body, Maple neck with Ebony Fretboard and Reverse Headstock. Delano Split pickup and humbucker.

Great thread and beautiful bass @thomas - I also love the TT4s and yours is a beauty @sfadams

For me natural wood is the only color/finish that can compete with black. It might be my choice for a J-Bass or 5-string to come.
Is your bass chambered? What is its weight?

Congrats @Bassdacious Nice name! This girl is … huuh… really hot! Have you checked how old the lady is?
I turned Sandberg catalogues and German websites upside down, but no word on basses with reverse headstock. It’s not an option in the Sandberg configurator, got to be a one-of-a-kind custom bass.

Thanks. Not chambered. The bass weighs 6 lbs (2.75 kg). Even less than my short-scale. It truly is ‘super-light’!

Yeah, according to the serial number records she is a 2020. I’ll get some more info from the dealer. They had this and the exact same in a 5 string available - one of each. They may have custom ordered but I’ll find out more on the history.

That fretboard is really beautiful. You’re a lefty? Did the dealer get it in for you?

Technically, it’s “copper” - at least, that is what Sandberg calls it :grin:

What a beauty!! Congrats! Love that coloration. Black headstock, ebony fretboard. Is this a Nighthawk? Thought they were strictly all-black.
