When Darkglass and Sandberg Meet!

With this particular Sandberg California Grand Dark 5 you get a hand-finished 5-String bass guitar with a high gloss San Remo Blue finish.

Adorning this fabulous bass you'll find Gun Metal hardware, a TM+ (Single Coil/Humbucker) pickup configuration, maple neck, pau ferro fingerboard, abalone dot inlays, and you'll even get a gig bag to keep it safe.

TM+ Pickups

With the Sandberg California Grand Dark you get a pair of stunning pickups to choose between, in an all-new TM+ setup.

The T series neck single coil is a classic reconstruction of the vintage Jazz Bass pickups from the 1960's and 1970's. Not only that but this particular Single Coil has been crafted with hum-cancelling properties, meaning you get all of that bright sparkle but without any unwanted noise!

Then there's the awesome M+ series bridge humbucker. This humbucker is based heavily around the popular Stingray style humbucker pickup shape, with a very wide string sensing area to pick up as much tonal colour as possible. You get a fat and grinding tone when in humbucker mode, at the flick of a switch can be converted into a bright and clear sounding single-coil instead.

With a warm bass and low-mid response, and extra voice on the mids and bright percussive top end, this pickup is as versatile as you could want or need it to be

Darkglass Tone Capsule

Replacing the usual Sandberg preamp on this bass is a stunning Darkglass Tone Capsule, with on-board 3-band EQ and an Active/Passive switch.

Anyone familiar with the Darkglass brand will tell you that their preamps are renowned for their tight, articulate tones and versatility. Despite being usually associated with heavier music styles will equally serve you well if you're playing Pop, Blues and even Jazz music, which makes the pairing with Sandberg a match made in heaven.

Extended Scale Length

Both 4 and 5 string variants of the Sandberg Grand Dark come complete with a 35" Scale neck. This adds an extra inch into the mix over the usual 34" size, resulting in a much tighter and more articulate low-end, making it perfect for heavier music and even down-tuning.

Premium Appointments

From the Gun Metal tuning machines and bridge, to the transparent plexi pickguard, and the all-new High Gloss San Remo Blue finish, every piece of this guitar has been brought together to offer you the very best playing experience. Not only that but you even get a deluxe Sandberg Gig Bag to keep it safe on the road too!
