Sandberg Introduces the Electra M4 Bass, California DC, and Electra DC Models
Electra M4

The Electra M4 is designed for modern rock players and sport a single humbucker.

Germany (May 8, 2014) -- The latest offspring of our budget series is called the Electra M4. Unlike its family members "Vs" and "TT" it comes with a humbucker, which was especially designed for modern rock sounds. Neck and body of the M4, as with all Electra models, are produced from selected manufacturers in Korea and then assembled here in our workshop in Braunschweig/Germany. Similar to all our Electra models, they go through the same strict quality control as our regular in-house-made instruments. The Electra M4 is available in Redburst Highgloss only. It is now available from all official Sandberg dealers.


California DC

For years you've asked .... now it has become reality! The California DC is a classic sounding rocker with modern features. Equipped with 22 frets and rosewood, maple or ebony fretboard, Kluson locking tuners and our new Vintage Power Singlecoils that can also be connected in series by using a push / push pot. The California DC leaves nothing to chance. You can choose from our wide range of matte and aged color finishes.


Electra DC

We are so proud of our new California DC that we decided to bring out a similar Electra DC model at the same time. This guitar is exactly the same specs, only the neck and body are produced for us by selected manufacturers in Korea. The assembly, as well as the final quality control is done in our workshop in Braunschweig/Germany. Those who buy the Electra DC, get a high quality instrument for the smaller budget. You can choose from models in Black and Butterscotch, each with alder or swamp ash body and maple or rosewood fingerboard.

When you consider stompboxes that have achieved ubiquity and longevity, images of Tube Screamers, Big Muffs, or Boss’ DD series delays probably flash before your eyes. It’s less likely that TC Electronic’s Stereo Chorus Flanger comes to mind. But when you consider that its fundamental architecture has remained essentially unchanged since 1976 and that it has consistently satisfied persnickety tone hounds like Eric Johnson, it’s hard to not be dazzled by its staying power—or wonder what makes it such an indispensable staple for so many players.

While Monolord has no shortage of the dark and heavy, guitarist and vocalist Thomas V Jäger comes at it from a perspective more common to pop songsmiths.

Melodies, hooks, clean tones, and no guitar solos. Are we sure this Elliott Smith fan fronts a doom-metal band? (We’re sure!)

Legend has it the name Monolord refers to a friend of the band with the same moniker who lost hearing in his left ear, and later said it didn’t matter if the band recorded anything in stereo, because he could not hear it anyway. It’s a funny, though slightly tragic, bit of backstory, but that handle is befitting in yet another, perhaps even more profound, way. Doom and stoner metal are arguably the torch-bearing subgenres for hard rock guitar players, and if any band seems to hold the keys to the castle at this moment, it’s Monolord.
