An up to date take on Leo Fenders ubiquitous bass from the 1960s that has had a modern makeover including: high specification pickups, flexible and natural sounding active/passive preamp, precision bridge and stunning German build quality. The over all spectrum of tones with the dual coil rear pickups makes it ideal for rock/pop/soul/indie/funk - a super versatile bass indeed! There is currently a nine month waiting list for a new Sandberg bass.

This High quality German Handmade Bass is a alternative to a P-Bass, with a slim neck, somewhere between a Jazz and a Precision and enough detail to keep it away from the Jazz Bass design but to keep the P-Bass purists happy.

Featuring a 6-bolted Maple neck with 22 High quality frets and a zero fret underneath the nut. The VM4 features one Seymour P-Bass Pickup at the neck and one Seymour Duncan MM pickups at the bridge giving you an amazing amount of tone options.

What is a Plek?

The Plek is a computer controlled fret levelling machine. It can level frets to within .001 mm accuracy. This kind of precision can not be matched by doing the job by hand.

How to get the best playing guitar?

Most players dream of having comfortable, smooth action on a guitar. With the PLEK, the most optimal string action possible for any instrument can be realized. This gives the individual musician an instrument that plays exactly the way he has dreamed of. Optimal playability on a guitar makes it sounds better with notes that ring true and clean. There is no fret buzz under normal playing conditions and the intonation problems that occur because of high string action, are eliminated. You can hear and feel the difference.

Plek scans neck with strings up to pitch?

When we take a look at a guitar neck, it is important that the guitar is under string tension and in playing condition when measured. The Plek measures the instruments neck and fret height with the instrument strung up to pitch. The computer ascertained a 3-D like graph of the fret board surface, including the position and height of the strings. Thanks to the PLEK SCAN the relief of the neck made by the string tension is taken into account while calculating the process-parameters. The operator then has the ability to manipulate the parameters to give the player an optimal playing instrument.

Can any guitar or bass be Plek'd?

Almost all acoustic and electric instruments, from any manufacturer can be put on the machine.
