This Sandberg California TM4 is a classic looking instrument with some modern specs and features.
It has been designed for players who need a really versatile and powerful bass and can be used for hours without fatigue (it is really lighteight and balanced). Classic body and neck dimensions (38mm nut) make this a really comfortable bass to play.
Sandberg are experts when it comes to Relic finish and this is a good example. The aptly named "Hardcore Aged" treatment is fantastic and it really suits the "Virgin White" color making this bass look like an authentic vintage bass. The matching headstock is really cool too.
This bass in particular comes with Delano Single + splittable Humbucker pickups as well as Delano Sonar 2 band electronics. In short, a winning combination.
We dig the Single + Humbucker arrangement. There's a switch to split the humbucker so the number of great sounds avaialbe is just amazing. In practice you get authentic Fender and Music Man sounds in a single bass that plays like a dream, looks really cool, is lightweight and has a very reasonable price tag for a 100% mae in Europe instrument.
