    Basic Ken Taylor 30th Anniversary

    Some places list this as a VM5 30th Anniversary and others as a Basic KT 30th Anniversary. It's referred to as VM5 30th Anniversary on my receipt and the paperwork states:

    California VM2/5s, limited No. 13/30

    Beautiful bass!
  5. Pretty bass! Weight? I've never liked Sandbergs headstocks. This one is sweet! Rarer? Thanks.

    Would you take a picture of front of the bass showing pups and controls?

    Pic added.
  10. Totally confused about your specs.
    Sandberg says the 5er is 35 scale.

    Might you post correct and up to date specs with weight, scale, nut width, spacing, electronics configuration etc...?!? Thanks.

    Man, I would blind the audience for sure, with the stage lights, and those big hunks o' chrome called pickup covers. Nice bass.
