Sandberg California VM4 Hardcore aged - SOLD

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Selling this with a heavy heart as not the easiest guitar to find used. I love a maple fret board and the hardcore aged so probably end up regretting this but just not getting used. I had a black ash body and this is much much lighter and plays like a dream.

Collection preferred in near Warwick or Milton Keynes week days

here we go:
California VM4 - 2009
hardcore aged creme finish
alder body
maple neck
maple fingerboard
nickel hardware
Sandberg VM pickups
Glockenklang 2Bd EQ (active/passive)
black pickguard
34" scale
14" fingerboard radius
Weighed at just under 4.1kg

We’re practically neighbours!  I’m in Northend...  don’t suppose you fancy a trade for a Stingray, do you?

      Very reluctant sale but seeing as my Jazz & "other" bass are only attracting trade offers, & I need to SELL a bass, gotta put this one up. When one goes, the other two will be removed.
       CIJ,  70'S RI in Capri Orange, slab rosewood board, 8lb 12oz.
      US pickups, alder body, TV logo, 41mm nut. Please note it has some dinks & a finish chip, but is in quite good condition. Do not expect immaculate.
      No trades please, gotta actually sell something.
      At this moment due to work I CAN NOT COURIER.
      I will meet up at no extra charge, within 50 miles of Wigan
      Feedback linked below, any trial in Wigan, thanks for looking.

      Couple of hairline paint cracks where screws have been overtightened after neck removal. They won't photo, not exactly unusual on any Fender, especially a 35 year old one.

      YOU MIGHT NEED TO GET A WRIGGLE ON, if the Mesa I've bought to try doesn't work out at a gig, this will be removed.

      Any trial in Wigan, feedback linked below.
      Whichever goes 1st (this or the Genzler Magellan) I will keep the other one as they are both terrific amps.
      Thanks for looking,

      Sold & with it's new owner in Chesterfield.
      Taken as a part ex against my Attitude, it's never going to work for me.
      Good condition but not excellent, a couple of dints, some buckle rash and some of the satin finish coming off the back of the neck.
      Passive, vol, vol, tone light at 7lb 14oz
      Thomann have a current Gibson USA SG Bass in at £1100+ (depending on today's exchange rate).
      I AM HAPPY to talk trade, please don't be upset if I say no, or I have a different valuation of your gear, to yours. Sorry, Mex P's were £200 in '98, so yours ain't worth £400+ to me, now.
      As ever, any trial in Wigan, you want it couriering you need to pay for it & at the moment wait until the Mrs can be in for a day. Apologies.
      Thanks for looking,
      EDIT. Sorry, feedback linked after pictures.
      2ND EDIT (I didn't sleep well!!)  I have a good bit of loot to ad to something nice if required
