I recently bought this bass to compliment my Sandberg Oliver Riedel VM-4, this one having a completely opposite look with a maple neck. While I do love the looks, as well as how it plays and the tone, the Riedel bass gives me everything I want and then some. So, sadly, I can't justify keeping this VM-4. No issues whatsoever, plays and sounds excellent. Comes with non-original hard case. $1675 shipped CONUS. PayPal and personal check accepted. Please pm me with any questions.
