Six screws hold the maple-mahogany neck securely to the lightweight paulownia body of the Basic VM5 Superlight.

Weight-optimized construction

As a model of the Superlight line from Brunswick, the Basic VM5 SL also convinces with a pleasingly low weight and comfortable playing characteristics. The wood used for the body is the light, but robust wood of the bluebell tree (paulownia), which also promises a lively tone in conjunction with the six-piece maple-mahogany neck. The flat C-profile also offers the best conditions for fatigue-free grooving, while large block inlays facilitate navigation between the 24 frets.

Sandberg Blacklabel in the VM setup and an active 3-band tone control promise a special flexibility in the sound of the Basic VM5 SL.

Sandberg Blacklabel pickups and active EQ

As pickup for the Basic VM Superlight Sandberg chooses in-house Blacklabel pickups in VM configuration. The Blacklabel humbucker at the bridge delivers a powerful tone with rich growl in the mids, while the Blacklabel Split-Coil in middle position stands for a cultivated power sound with rich pressure in the low mids. The split switch also provides a transparent single-coil option for the bridge pickup. The Sandberg Basic VM5 SL is also equipped with an active 3-band EQ for precise tone adjustment.

High Quality Sandberg Hardware

Naturally high-quality Hardware from our own house completes the Sandberg Basic VM5 SL MN Superlight Redburst Soft Aged. With three-dimensionally adjustable tail pieces, the Sandberg Bridge 5 guarantees not only optimal adjustment of intonation and string action, but also of string spacing. The solid construction also supports the harmonic sound development of the electric bass. Behind the zero fret and nut, five Sandberg Die-Cast Machine Heads promise precise and stable tuning.
