We take a look at 5 of the best Sandberg Bass Guitars available at select PMT stores now
We stock one of the largest selections of Sandberg Bass guitars in the UK, and are proud stockists of this world class brand. Thanks to the completely customisable nature of Sandberg bass guitars, and the fact you can choose everything from pickup configuration to body shape, tonewood to finish, each bass can be completely unique to your specifications. We’ve covered the complete series of Sandberg bass shapes in our blog, which you can read here, but considering there’s new Sandberg bass guitars arriving daily at PMT stores, many of which are completely unique, we thought we’d take a look at 5 of the best Sandberg Bass guitars available now at selected PMT stores.
Remember, if you see something you like, but it’s not in stock, or you have a new design in mind, just contact your local PMT store or call us on 0151 448 2089 and we can help make your bass dreams into reality!
1. Sandberg California VM4 in Goldburst
The Sandberg California VM4 in Goldburst pictured here is a particularly limited-edition model, created specifically for PMT stores, and one not to be missed! The stunning Goldburst finish is beautifully accentuated with the black scratchplate and Pau Ferro fretboard adorned with mother of pearl inlays.
But it’s not just about the looks with this guitar as you have a pickup and electronic configuration designed for professional guitarists and tone snobs alike!
You have a split coil pickup as well as a powerful Sandberg humbucker pickup, both of which have been designed with larger-than-usual magnetic poles to ensure there’s zero loss of tone and a fatter, harder sound with more attack. Best of all, you can isolate the pickups or blend them together to produce a wide variety of tones via the Balance control next to the Volume knob.
The preamp circuitry also features a push/pull volume control which allows you to set the pickups to active or passive, so you have plenty of room to push the sound harder.
Take a listen to the Sandberg California VM4 bass guitar range below.
2. Sandberg California TM4 in Goldburst
The instantly recognisable J-Style bass from Sandberg also features this amazing high-gloss Goldburst, but includes a different pickup configuration that takes you back to the sound of the 1960s and 70s instantly. Within this Sandberg California TM4 in Goldburst you have a combination of Single Coil and Humbucker Delano pickups packed into the resonant Alder body to produce a massive sound.
The T-Series neck single coil pickup provides all the articulate midrange and funky twang single coils are renowned for, whilst the M-Series bridge humbucker offers that fat, grinding tone found in Stingray bass guitars. You can even split the humbucker via a toggle switch and even set the preamp to Active or Passive via the push/pull volume knob.
Gold hardware, control plate and fret inlays really finish off this guitar nicely!
3. Sandberg California Grand Dark 4 String
Next up we have the Sandberg California Grand Dark 4 String, which is the product of a collaboration with two heavyweights in the bass world – Sandberg and Darkglass. You get the renowned Sandberg California T-series body shape and TM+ pickup configuration but with the added Darkglass preamp installed for pure power.
Replacing the usual Sandberg preamp is the Darkglass Tone Capsule which features an on-board 3-band EQ and an Active/Passive switch. The major difference between the Sandberg bass preamp and the Darkglass option comes in the form of a tighter, more articulate tone that everyone from Jazz to Blues players will really enjoy. There’s no unwanted noise, whether you choose to engage the T Series neck single coil or enjoy the massive fat tones within the M-series humbucker.
4. Sandberg California Grand Dark 5 String San-Remo Blue
Need a 5-string option? The Sandberg California Grand Dark 5 String in San-Remo Blue is available also.
5. Sandberg Basic Ken Taylor Signature Zebrawood Voodoo
We are also extremely proud of the fact we are stocking the highly coveted Sandberg Basic Ken Taylor Signature Zebrawood Voodoo bass guitars at PMT. Sandberg have been creating beautiful, world class bass guitars for over 30 years, so it stands to reason that they would attract high profile names such as renowned studio bassist Ken Taylor who has appeared on recordings from the likes of Bruce Springsteen, Brian May and Robert Palmer, amongst others.
You have a pair of high-powered Sandberg power-humbuckers both with split-coil functionality installed in the black Zebrawood top over a lightweight Ash body. The combination of these massive sounding pickups and the lush resonant tonewoods ensures the bass cuts through the mix whether you choose to engage the humbucker or split single coil mode – you’ll be heard loud and clear! Again, you have the option of switching between active and passive via the onboard Sandberg preamp which is activated via the push/pull volume switch.
A beautifully designed custom bass guitar from the team at Sandberg that sounds and looks incredible.
