Sandberg help.

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I'm looking at getting a Sandberg California VS4. Now the thing is this one seems to be only passive, has the reverse P and a single coil jazz at the bridge position

Are they a rare breed? Can't seem to find any detailed info on it anywhere.

Is that the VT?  The VS has no bridge pickup.

Thanks sorry, yes it is the VT version. Reverse P,  J and Passive.

The VS4 passive - single P pickup, the proper way round, is considered a special order. Probably because they sell more of the others.

The VT4 can be active or passive - the passive again being a special order. The P pickup is the wrong way round.

Neck shapes across all the 4 strings (T and V types) are the same.


For what it's worth - I'd be tearing out the big pole P pickup anyway and replacing it with something more traditional. Aguilar 60s wind for example.


Easiest way of getting info is to joint the Sandberg page on facebook and send a message - Gregor (from the Bass the World youtube) will answer any questions you have.

Or contact a dealer to get a quote - but IIRC built to order specs take about a year.
