As a premier Sandberg dealer, we're stoked to present this limited edition Sandberg signature bass with BassTheWorld.com's Gregor Fris! Based on Gregor's own Masterpiece TT-4, this collaboration brings its tastefully chosen specifications to the masses.
Based on the classic "J" platform and dressed in a beautiful Matte Black over a a lightweight and well-balanced piece of swamp ash, this TT-4 is effortless to play with flawless fretwork and a smooth satin-finished maple neck. It's got an excellent tonal package as well, featuring the venerable Kloppmann '61 JB pickups pushing out fat low-mids with a full tone that sounds absolutely dead-on to the storied vintage "J" basses of old. The choice of the Gotoh vintage bridge on this bass also stands out as an excellent feature, making the bass' specification both more vintage-accurate and more functionally stable.
Like all Masterpiece builds by Sandberg, this one features both their proprietary thermo and vibration treatments. The thermo treatment essentially "roasts" the swamp ash under heat, resulting in a more stable, durable, and resonant piece of wood. The frequency-based vibration treatment "ages" the body in a similar manner to a real vintage instrument, even further increasing its resonance and forward acoustic response. We've directly compared the Sandberg basses we've had in here at the shop over the years, and while all have been nothing but stellar, we definitely notice a difference in the instruments that have received these treatments and have generally preferred them every time.
We're excited to be one of the very few dealers worldwide carrying this truly special instrument.
Sandberg Guitars was founded back in 1986 by Holger Stonjek and Gerd Gorzelke. Since then, they have been producing hand-made instruments at the highest quality. This BassTheWorld signature bass features Sandberg's California II TT-4 body shape. The body is made out of ash and the neck is Canadian hard rock maple. Lacquered Kloppmann '61 JB pickups and a traditional J-style wiring loom work together to provide stunning vintage bass tones, while a Gotoh vintage-style bridge rounds off the hardware package nicely.
We're proud to be an authorized Sandberg Guitars dealer. Along with our amazing inventory, we can custom order any Sandberg bass or guitar you'd like.
