This Sandberg California TM4 is an impressive bass. Dressed up as a beaten instrument thanks to Sandgerb's Hardcore Aged finish, MOP block inlays and tortoise guard, it features the familiar J/J pickup arrangement, and it does so using the excellent Delano brand of pickups.
The 2 band EQ is great for adding punch and definition and the good news is that in Passive mode the Treble pot acts like a Passive Tone control. We love that.
This is actually one of the few basses that actually sounds vintage in passive mode and modern/punchy but still quite 70's in active mode. Test it and you'll be hooked.
To sum up: a bass with THE looks, THE sound and THE performance. Made in Germany with a susprisingly low price tag
