Sandberg Guitars Announces the Lionel Short-Scale Bass
Sandberg Guitars was on hand at the 2020 Winter NAMM Show to display several new products, including a new short-scale passive bass called the Lionel. Featuring a 30-inch scale, the bass is based on the company’s California VS model.
The bass is built with a six-bolt Canadian hard rock maple neck with two body options: European ash for matte finishes and alder for aged finishes. Sandberg fits the small but mighty axe with all their own hardware and electronics. Its single split-coil pickups are matched to a 2-band active/passive EQ complete with a passive tone control.
The Sandberg Lionel bass debuted at NAMM with a TBA price point.
