Sandberg California Enigma 5 Chris Childs Signature

Five-string electric bass with Sandberg pickups and active 2-band tone control, including gig bag

With the Sandberg California Enigma 5 Chris Childs Signature, the Braunschweiger Company tailors a 5-string electric bass for the bassist of the British hard rock legend Thunder, which turns out to be a true groove machine for hard rock with extraordinary styling and first-class sounds. Sandberg relies on the proven design with an alder body and a six-ply bolted maple neck with ebony fingerboard, while powerful Sandberg pickups and the active 2-band tone control ensure an adequate sound. Last but not least the Sandberg California Enigma 5 has the massive Sandberg Bridge 5 and precise Sandberg Machine Head tuners.

Sandberg California Enigma in Classic Design

As the basis for his Sandberg California Enigma 5, Chris Childs chose the classic California V design with an alder body and a 6-point bolted maple neck, which is not considered a guarantee for juicy bass sounds for nothing. The flat "C" profile promises optimum playability, so that every groove on the 22-fret ebony fingerboard comes naturally to life.

Sandberg Split Coil and Powerhumbucker pickups with powerful metal caps provide forceful sounds that can be adjusted with the active 2-band tone control.

Powerful pickups and Active Electronics

Underneath the mighty metal caps, taken from the Forty Eight, the Sandberg California Enigma 5 hides a Sandberg Split Coil in middle position and a Sandberg Powerhumbucker at the bridge. Accordingly, the bass amplifier offers a multi-faceted sound spectrum of powerful rock sounds, ranging from the deep mid-range growl of the middle pickup to the powerful mid-range spectrum of the bridge pickup. For a precise tuning of the sound there is also an active 2-band tone control on board, which can be switched to passive mode by a pull on the volume control.

Rugged Sandberg Hardware

Of course, the Sandberg California Enigma 5 Chris Childs Signature Bass is equipped with high-quality Sandberg hardware that can handle even the toughest live shows with unlimited reliability. The solidly constructed Sandberg Bridge 5 sits on the body. Its string riders can be adjusted in three dimensions for optimum adjustment of intonation, string position and string spacing. Behind the proven pair of zero fret and saddle, Sandberg tuners also ensure precise and stable tuning of the five-string.
