WITHDRAWN - Sandberg California II VS4 (Precision) - Now 700
£775
Watford, Herts

Recommended Posts

I'm selling my Sandberg VS4 to consolidate my bass collection - I bought this last year as a backup bass for my VT4 but I don't play it very often and not being in a band I don't have a need for a backup.

Condition is very good - I changed the stock pickup to a Nordstrand NPJ4V for a more vintage vibe, to me it improved the tone massively - if you don't want this let me know and I'll take it out and swap it for the Delano pickup from the VT4.

When I initially replaced the pickup it was quite noisy which ended up being a shielding issue.  I had to use a fair amount copper tape to resolve this, not my best work but it was effective. Picture included if what's going on underneath the pickguard.

Currently strung with La Bella Low Tension flats.

I believe this is the relevant specification

  • Body: alder
  • Bolt-on neck: maple
  • Fretboard: Rosewood
  • Nut width: 39.5 mm
  • Scale: 34"
  • 22 Frets
  • 2-Band active / passive EQ
  • Master volume-, treble- and bass controls
  • Treble control is Tone control in passive mode
  • Chrome hardware
  • Tortoise pickguard
  • Sandberg lightweight machine heads
  • Colour: 3-Tone Sunburst
  • Schaller S Locks
  • Includes Sandberg gig bag
  • Made in Germany

No trades I'm afraid.  Collection or meet up within reasonable distance of WD17 please as I dont have a hard case.

That is lovely. If only someone would buy my Shuker 5! 

Your Shuker is beautiful, I've had a look at it many times and I'm surprised it hasn't gone.

Lovely, shame you are so far away.

I have the opposite problem - only 20 mins away from me, so I'm requiring my full reserve of willpower 😄

Dude, come on!  How often do basses come up literally just round the corner - they're always up North some where or right down in south east London.

3.3kg P style bass just 20 mins down the round.  Surely worth popping over to take a look and perhaps a noodle in the back yard through a headphone amp.

Lockdown is easing and restrictions lifting so new price and a bump to get this bass moving to a new home.
