    Yes! After waiting for over one and a half year, she's finally home! My Sandberg!

    I had to wait for this thing for so long! I was so excited to open the case and see her for the first time! A complete different experience then getting stuff on demand :) It's awesome!

    First impressions
    It's exactly what I hoped! Such a relief! ;) It's very resonant unplugged. Very snappy. It's such a solid and stiff bass. Well balanced. Light weight. If you play it in passive mode, it gives you that real vintage vibe. If you play it in active mode, it doesn't 'kill' the bass' character. The P/J combination is extremely versatile and just so much fun to play with! I feel very lucky.

    Sandberg California VT Masterpiece, tobacco-sunburst
    Body wood: European swamp ash
    Scale & strings : 5-string 34"
    Fingerboard wood: Maple
    Neck pickup: Delano PC 5 AL/M2 (reversed)
    Bridge pickup: Delano JC 5 AL
    3 band EQ (really happy with the mid option)
