After a tortuous 6 months of waiting, I finally received my new Sandberg yesterday! 😊
It's everything I hoped it would be, lightweight, has that incredible sandberg neck feel and effortless playability, and the passive electronics with more traditional style Alnico V pickups are giving me the pure, organic tone I was after. Couldn't be happier!
The new Sandberg gigbags are a cast improvement in my opinion too, really nice.
Happy chappy. 😊👌
For sale is my Sandberg California VM5 Supreme which I have owned from new and which comes with a Gator hard case.
The Supreme versions of the VM5 have the additional features over the base models:
- - Matched headstock
- - Pearl block inlays
- - High gloss finish
I also ordered mine with a 3-band preamp instead of the usual 2-band.
Very good, there are a couple of tiny marks on the headstock and one near the input jack.
The bass was my main gigging bass for a few years until my Shuker took its place, since then it’s mainly just been used as a backup, sitting on a stand.
Cash, PayPal or bank transfer please. I live in Sutton-in-Ashfield, north Nottinghamshire, UK and would be willing to meet part-way if collection in person is preferred (also my preferred method). Alternatively I can ship this.

Hey everyone, here I have an original Jazz style California TM-5 from Sandberg out of Germany.
These things are hand built and given a whole lotta love in the factory, Sandberg are known for absolutely killer basses, versatile and way more bang for your buck than many out there. This specific bass is when they still used the traditional Jazz and Precision body shapes.
Trades: Ideally looking for a passive jazz or a 5 string P but hey, show me anything, I may be interested!
Based In Finchley (LONDON)
Scale: 34" long scale
Pickup: 1 Delano J-Style and 1 Delano Power Humbucker
Sandberg 2-band EQ
Colour: 3-tone sunburst hardcore aged
PRICE DROP: £850
Selling this wonderful Sandberg California 2 TM4 as I am not using it much (spending more time with a Sandberg California TT4 Fretless).
It has seen mainly home and practice room use and is in excellent condition. There are just a few very minor scratches which can be seen in the pictures below. It sounds excellent and can go from jazz bass to MM tones very easily. The preamp is natural-sounding and can be bypassed by via an onboard switch. Comes with a high quality Sandberg padded gigbag.
Collection in Hackney, London or shipment at buyer's expense. Thanks for looking.
