SANDBERG California VS4 MN Marley Blue Highgloss
The Sandberg California VS4 MN Marley Blue Highgloss is a straightforwardly designed 4-string bass with a powerful sound and contemporary playing characteristics.
SANDBERG California VS4 MN Marley Blue Highgloss Back
On the flat C-profile of the six-piece maple neck, every bassline comes off with ease.

Classic bass construction

In the construction of the California VS4, Sandberg relies on the traditional ingredients for a powerful sound with a crisp attack with an alder body and a six-piece maple neck. While the ergonomic contours of the body allow the bass guitar to fit the body with ideal balance, the flat C-profile with 39.5 mm nut width promises the best conditions for comfortably implementing classic and modern playing techniques on the 22-fret maple fingerboard.

SANDBERG California VS4 MN Marley Blue Highgloss Body
A powerful Sandberg split-coil pickup with active 2-band tone control promises diverse bass sounds with enormous thrust.

Split coil pickup and active equalizer

The electrical sound conversion of the California VS4 MN Marley Blue Highgloss is done by the Sandberg split-coil pickup, an in-house unit with a convincing vintage sound. Placed in the sweet spot in the middle of the body, the pickup, equipped with fat pole pieces, delivers a powerful sound with a pleasantly subtle compression that makes every note played palpable in the pit of your stomach thanks to richly pushing basses and growling mids. To be able to adjust the tone precisely, Sandberg also equips the 4-string Bass with an active 2-band tone control that can be set to passive mode via the push/pull switch in the volume pot if desired.

SANDBERG California VS4 MN Marley Blue Highgloss Headstock
Lightweight Sandberg Machine Heads keep the California VS4 securely in the correct tuning.

Reliable Sandberg hardware

Last but not least, a high-quality hardware equipment completes the Sandberg California VS4 MN Marley Blue electric bass. While lightweight Sandberg Machine Heads on the headstock guarantee a robust and precise tuning of the four-stringer and at the same time counteract unwanted neck dive, a solidly built Sandberg Bridge 4 on the body supports the smooth tonal behavior of the electric bass. Three-dimensionally adjustable tailpieces also guarantee optimal settings of intonation, string action and string spacing.
