Whether you're wanting a mid-range second instrument, or looking to pay top-dollar for a premium-grade custom bass, you can't go wrong with a Sandberg. Each of their instruments is hand made at the Sandberg factory in Germany, using only the finest tonewoods and electronics to help make your dreams come true.
A Delight to Play, for even the most discerning bass enthusiast
Sandberg's "Custom" range delivers the very pinnacle of bass guitar luthierie - bringing together exotic woods, premium-grade hardware, and some of the finest electronics available on todays market in the construction of high-level instruments for serious players.
This particular Sandberg Custom is a 4-string bass variant, constructed of rich mahogany with an exotic Bocote wood top and matching headstock. Other key features on this excellent instrument include a Rosewood fingerboard with Abalone Dot Inlays, Gold-plated hardware, a powerful Sandberg preamp with 3-band EQ and Active/Passive bypatch switching, and a pair of exquisite Delano XTender humbuckers.
Delano XTender Pickups
Delano's specially designed, Oval-Shaped XTender pickups offer you an even wider range of crystal-clear tones than you've experienced before.
Their unique shape results in a radically different magnet array than usual, granting you a tone with a huge amount of bottom-end, crystal-clear definition, a gutsy midrange growl, and a wide open top-end that's second to none. The overall result is a previously unmatched sound character in the bass playing world, and it has to be experienced to be believed!
Sandberg Preamp with 3-Band EQ
The preamp circuitry on the Sandberg Custom 4 is just as crafty as the pickups. This sneaky little setup has a clever surprise in store, in the shape of a push/pull Volume control knob that allows you to set the preamp to Active or Passive.
Next to the Volume control you have the Balance control, which acts as a nice pickup selector "Blend" option, where you can determine the level of each pickup in the mix (centre position has both pickups running at 100%, or turn the control in the direction of the pickup you want to be at the forefront to make it so).
Finally there's the Treble, Mid-Range and Bass controls, which allow you to either boost or cut the appropriate frequency range, giving you near endless options for your overall sound. Exciting stuff!
Made to be Played
With the ergonomic and solidly constructed chassis, this guitar is most certainly one that you could grace a stage with. The curvature of this relatively lightweight body rests comfortably against you as you play, making even the longest of shows and studio sessions pass by that bit quicker. Not only that, but just look at it - It's gold! Add that to the perfect sounding tonal spectrum supplied by the solid wood body and awesome electronics system, and you will fast be running out of reasons NOT to buy it.
