California VM Nighthawk

"Sandberg’s MkII California series doesn’t ditch all its original Fender references, the bodies being subtly remodelled, creating intelligent and visually appealing variations on the classic templates with a strong identity.

"The standard active electronics with Sandberg preamp are hooked up to the Splitcoil pickup in neck position and Powerhumbucker at the bridge, although sans the coil-tap switch of the TM for obvious reasons. Controls number volume (pull for passive mode), balance and a two-band EQ.

"We found that, whilst imbued with decent width and aggression, there was a wirey quality to the VM’s basic noise, almost a slight weakness in output, so we reached for the bass dial. Half boost creates a more up-front sound with depth and power, growling at the bottom end, and dark and aggressive in the midrange with plenty of slightly stunted top-end clarity.

"Dialling in treble provokes a snappy, slicing edge to thinner strings and more overall harmonic life – perfect for metal. Whilst soloing, the neck pickup brings hints of the P Bass, while the VM has more authority, with much more rasp and aggression across the neck.

Boosting the treble gets more snap before re-awakening the wiry clank on full boost – it’s fun and almost pick-like. Bass boost also uncorks a warm, fat gurgly funk tone at the bridge, where your note is given real purpose."
