Sandberg California DC hardcore aged in Candy Apple Red - Hardcore aged by the leading experts in professional aging but in excellent condition (i know this sounds weird) ... Anyway, there is virtually no fretwear, electronics work fine. I have replaced the original PUs for a combination of a DiMarzio DP 384 ("The Chopper", check out Richie Kotzen for reference) at the bridge and a Lollar Royal-T at the neck ( :// ). This combination was over €200,- and has really opened up both the clear and slightly overdriven sounds. The DiMarzio can still "do the TWANG" but also knows how to drive an amp. The Lollar Royal-T is just amazing ..... Should anybody want to buy with original PUs, I can put these back in place - but actually, it is very much improved now. The tone control is push/pull action and when pulled up it puts the bridge and neck PU in parallel position, bypassing the switch. this could of cause also be used to reverse polarity should anybody want to do this.

The neck is a compound radius but modern style maple neck with thick rosewood fingerboard. It is less chunky than on a standard 50s style telecaster and plays extremely comfortably. It is strung with new D´Addarios 10-46, the truss rod is adjusted and string action is rather low. 

Sandberg is based in Braunschweig, Germany and is best known for on hand-building very fine bass guitars (:// They also have a lesser know but equally well built line of guitars which are still hard to find in shops or used. This is a very unique instrument, extremely comfortable to play and super versatile with the current modification of the PUs. It comes in a padded soft-shell bag and will be shipped well protected in a padded box.
