With the Sandberg Electra VS, seen here with a high gloss black finish, you get an electric bass which combines the precision engineering normally associated with Sandberg, with an asking price that aspiring professional players will love.
You'd be forgiven for thinking that this is "just another Precision Bass copy", as on the surface that's exactly what it looks like. However, as we all know, taking any kind of instrument just on looks alone can often lead to some surprises when it comes to fully experiencing it.
Featuring a Sandberg designed P-style split coil pickups with high-grade AlniCo5 magnetics, and solidly constructed with a canadian hardrock maple neck and basswood body, the Electra VS is most certainly a bass to be reckoned with.
The ergonomically designed curvature of the Electra VS's relatively lightweight Basswood body ensures that it rests comfortably against you whilst you're playing, helping make even the longest of live shows, rehearsals or studio sessions pass by that little bit easier.
This combined with the awesome looks, and the solid hard-wood construction makes repeatedly playing this bass for extended periods of time seem like more of a pleasure than a chore.
This pickup has been specially designed by Sandberg for use on the Electra VS, and is perfect for purveyors of that classic P-Bass sound wanting something a little more. Just imaging: a meaty P-Bass style tone with an in-your-face Stingray type attack and you'll get an idea of just how awesome the Split coil pickup is.
The larger-than-usual poles you see adorning the pickup help to capture the full movement of each string, ensuring that no frequencies are lost, even when playing with heavily down-tuned strings.
