By far the bass I have ever played. If you disagree, give me yours then.
cedricdegruyter, 18.04.2018
I got to know Sandberg a few years back, when I had the chance to play a custom relic'd California. Instantly sold, but given the price tag of 2500+, this was not an item you buy in a heartbeat.

When I was in the market for a new bass, this California was just what I wanted. Readily available at a decent price, I ordered it with Thomann.

For the last year, this has been my main bass, recorded 2 releases with it, played a number of shows. It is wonderful.

Perfect bass
NorbertDrums, 05.11.2018
After the first years of an entry-level model, it should now be a professional instrument.
I picked up the California II (along with some other well-known basses) and was immediately impressed by the pleasant feel, the light feel and the perfect balance on the body.
The sound is extremely versatile as there are many possibilities with the different pickups and treble and bass controls.
The design has chosen my wife like all my instruments (drums, bass). My initial concerns that the bass might look a bit rough or heavy due to the many blacks were immediately dispelled when unpacking ... the bass just looks classy!
