FS: SANDBERG CALIFORNIA VM4

Post by CosmoRhythmatic » 23 Mar 2019, 07:58

Here's my Sandberg California VM4 bass.

I'm the second owner, but as with the previous owner, it's had very little use. After a couple of weeks of my getting it, a 1975 AVRI Jazz bass came my way and because of it's more curved radius, I bonded quite substantially better with it. The only reason I'm selling it is because I find the 7.25" to 10" radius much more to my liking.
It is revised body shape with P/MM pickups, punchy and crisp sound.

Selling on ozbassforum for $1800.

I'd also consider P bass variants of similar or higher value for trade.
Bass is located in Seabrook, Victoria. It can be shipped.

Many thanks for looking!

Thanks!

Nah, I saw the original receipt, I might still have it... They decided to treat it like a stand out feature :D I always thought it was supposed to be that way though. On a practical side, I only noticed it when switching the strings and there was a piece of G missing! :)

Look's like the upside down headstock option rather than a lefty neck ?

Sandberg did make a few reversed headstock ones. I've seen a few 48's floating around as well as a couple (at least) VM4's. Why? Apparently, it's because they wanted it that way :cool: :)

Yep - I reckon I played this one (or one like it) in the bass centre a few years ago. Reverse headstock is a factory option.

Sandbergs can be whatever you’re willing to pay for, there’s heaps of options that aren’t on the website 😎

But damn I’ve seen this pop up a few times and I love that reverse headstock and orange

It may well have been this same one! It was originally purchased in February 2017 from Bass Centre.

Same here! If it was a bit curvier radius, I'd be keeping it for sure. I posted it elsewhere, then took it off, decided I'll keep it, but after a couple of practice sessions I just leave it alone again. It needs to be played, but also, something else is poking my eye, so... :D
