Electric Bass Guitar Sandberg California TM4 RW CRM
Sandberg stands for quality, sound and exclusivity in the area of bass construction. Holger Stonjek, owner of Sandberg, gets hands on with his basses himself, especially the neck shaping he performs with attention to detail. All basses from Holger are equipped with Glockenklang electronics. All Sandberg employees have many years of experience in bass construction. It is not an exaggeration to say that these basses have an extraordinary quality, inimitable sound and a unique playability. The basses shown here are unfortunately only a small part of the product line of Sandberg basses. We have the possibility to offer each bass player his individual (custom) bass. So, it's worth checking them out and talking to us about your personal bass.

The California series is a bow to the vintage, californian-made bass guitars - but with that certain Sandberg-touch.
For years now, the Sandberg company has inspired with handcrafted electric basses from Braunschweig, Germany.
These basses persuade the player with phantastic handling from the first touch. If you plug a Sandberg into an amp then almost everybody is overwhelmed. Hi-tech components combined with selected tone woods generate a beefy bass groundwork. The perfect interaction of its components delivers an assertive and punchy bass and that's straight from the factory!
If you compare price and quality of the instruments its crystal clear why Sandberg is celebrating a triumphal course throughout the bass world.
Sandberg is from start to finish quality pure! The neck pocket is optimized and provided with a six point neck connection. The Technical University in Braunschweig was even consulted as to the exact positioning of the neck. The entire electronic system has been designed by Glockenklang and offers numerous possibilities to use the pick ups in either Active or passive mode, a system which even works without a battery installed.
The bridge was designed according to the latest guitar building knowledge and provides accurate settings, even the spacing can be changed!
Particular attention was devoted to the neck, it has its own profile, weight optimized hardware so as not to let the guitar get top heavy, zero fret conception, a string retainer and last but not least the PLEK process is carried out on Sandberg guitars. The neck and Frets are computer analysed within 0.001 mm, the neck ist then adjusted and the Frets dressed exactly and polished. The result is a stunningly easy playable action !
