Had a flirtation with short scale basses during lockdown, though have mostly gone back to my two 'standard' basses now...
Sandberg California VS Lionel 30inch precision bass in excellent condition
Alder body with maple neck - the grain shows through very nicely
Fretless, ebony Pao Ferro finger board with sideline fret markers
LaBella Black Nylon Tape Wounds
Made in Germany
On offer here is my Sandberg California II TT4 in natural swamp ash.
Beautiful Sandberg quality with rosewood fingerboard, abalone dots & 9v preamp.
Bought last year from Classic and Cool Guitars - link below - but I tend to use my Precision more.
please note the colour balance on the C&CG site is too pale - the one where it's on the scales is more accurate.
No dents or dings, the only thing worth mentioning is light scratches to the scratch plate from normal use which is shown in one of the pics below.
Can post to mainland UK.
Looking at the Sandberg website I reckon this would cost £1800 new.
Weight is 8.3lbs. Comes with Sandberg soft case and orginal cardboard box.
thanks for looking,
For sale is my Sandberg California TM4 in natural finish.
I’ve been bitten by the p-Bass bug and I’m on the hunt for something a little more traditional and Motown sounding.
All in all, this bass is in good condition, with a few minor scuffs from being well-gigged, but all purely cosmetic. The electronics work perfectly, in either passive or active mode with a split-coil switch for the musicman style bridge pickup. From the Sandberg website I believe this bass weighs around 9.8lbs.
I’d highly prefer to meet up to sell as I don’t have the means to ship it in a hard case, but I can look into arrangements for a serious buyer.
Having once and for all settled on exclusively playing short scale basses I'm selling this Sandberg California TT4 P. I bought this from @DoubleOhStephan last November but only got to pick it up a week or two back. It is, by far, the lightest 34" bass I've ever played, it's just a shade heavier than my 30' Rob Allen Mouse. Incredible bit of kit. Pickup from Southend, delivered to you by me (reasonable distance obv, try me) or mid-way meet. Here's a couple of my snaps...
