14.03.2017
Da kauft man sich einen nagelneuen Bass für nicht ganz wenig Geld und dann das: sieht aus wie 30 Jahre abgerockt, Lack z.T. ab und zerschraddelt, Metallteile angelaufen und jemand hat vergessen, seine Kippe, die er/sie an der Kopfplatte unter die E-Saite geklemmt hat, auszumachen! Hat wahrscheinlich gerade ein Solo gespielt?
How can a bass go so low / What a Mess / So sad.

Nein im Ernst, ich will einfach nicht, dass noch jemand außer mir einen *so* krass geilen Bass spielt. Sandberg sind ganz klar die Besten, wenn es um ageing geht, aufwändig, "labour of love" eben. Der Lack auf den geageten Bässen ist etwas weicher, als der auf den high-gloss-Teilen und ich bilde mir ein, dass die HCA-Bässe dadurch etwas holziger/offener klingen. Entspannend: ich habe das Gefühl, dass ich mit dem Teil lockerer umgehe, was die Oberfläche angeht: Wenn ich mit dem Body mal wo dran stoße, kann ich lange nach der Delle suchen. ;)

Ich komme aus der Jazz-Bass-Ecke (fretted und fretless), wobei mir der Hals-Pickup da nie hundertprozentig gefallen hat. Der invers eingebaute Preci-Pickup kommt schön kernig, der MM-Pickup - sehr dicht am Steg - bringt feine, trockene, knurrige Mitten und aber auch solo genug Power und auf jeden Fall auch genug Bass mit der 2-Band-Klangregelung (jew. +- 18 dB). Klanglich ist der Bass *sehr* vielfältig, ich kann damit alles machen, was ich will/brauche: Jazz, Funk, Rock, Pop, Reggae - alles super gut. Eine Groovemachine mit P-, J- und MM-Klangeigenschaften.

Durch das Push-Pull-Volumepoti zum passiv-schalten mit dem Höhenregler als passiver Tonblende kann ich direkt zwei Sounds einstellen und blitzschnell abrufen. Die aktive Blende zwischen den beiden Pickups (ohne jegliche Einbußen in der Mittelstellung) habe ich auch sehr zu schätzen gelernt. Man kann den Klangcharakter damit schnell und präzise ändern.
Für wen ist der Sound des VM4 vielleicht nicht ganz perfekt? Ich denke da an den HiFi-Slapper mit ausgeprägter Hartholz-Affinität: Dem fehlt evtl. ein Hauch mehr Glanz in den Präsenzen.
Der Charakter des Basses ist im gesamten Klangspektrum immer schön lebendig: starke Tiefen, guter Impuls, tolle Mitten und samtige, klare Höhen. Ein super Rockbass, aber *nur* dafür eigentlich viel zu schade bzw. zu gut bzw. zu vielseitig. :)

Der Hals ist ab Werk geplekt, also von Freund Computer-Fräse abgerichtet. Die Saitenlage ist dadurch sehr niedrig einstellbar. Sehr angenehmes Halsprofil zwischen J- und P-Bass, super bespielbar, keine Deadspots gefunden. Sustain geht mit den 6 Halsschrauben bis nach der Kaffeepause. Man kann die Saiten streicheln und seine Finger schonen bei starkem Ton/Fundament und Output. Einfach nur cool.

Für die California II Serie ist die Kopfplatte minimal verkleinert worden und mit extra leichten Mechaniken bestückt. Der Saitenniederhalter umfasst auch die A-Saite. Die Brücke sitzt eine Spur weiter am unteren Ende und der Bass ist insgesamt etwas leichter als in der Vorgängerserie. Hängt sehr ausgewogen, keinerlei Tendenz zur Kopflastigkeit.

Die Brücke ist gut abgerundet, keine Verletzungsgefahr. Die Oktavreinheit ist ab Werk sehr gut eingestellt. Habe gelesen, dass das Einstellen der Brücke etwas umständlich ist, macht man ja aber eh nicht jeden Tag. Die Brücke ist geschlitzt, was ich sehr gut finde, da man Saiten schnell wechseln kann und auch mal Saiten austauschen kann, um zwischendrin einen anderen Sound zu haben, ohne dass man die Saiten beim Abnehmen ruiniert, wenn man sie durch ein Loch im Steg fummeln müsste. Die Madenschräubchen in der Brücke sind übrigens nicht gealtert und laufen sahnig weich.

Also: Toller Bass, bin absolut zufrieden. Habe in meinen gut 30 Jahren Bassismus schon so einige feine Bässe in den Fingern gehabt aber noch kaum einen besseren, jedenfalls nach *meinem* Geschmack.
Der Preis ist für das gebotene voll okay - so don't buy, please.
