Sandberg Guitars is a musical instrument manufacturer based in Braunschweig, Germany, which manufactures electric basses and guitars. It is well known by bassists for its production of affordable basses of the highest quality.
It was founded in 1986 by friends Holger Stonjek and Gerd Gorzelke. Stonjek was formed as a piano builder at Wilhelm Schimmel Pianofortefabrik GmbH in Braunschweig when the company was founded.
Sandberg Guitars is best known for eight different series of electric basses: Basic Series, Classic Series, California T-Series, California V-Series, Custom Series, Electra Series, Panther Series and Terrabass.
Since spring 2010, Sandberg has also been selling models of mass-produced electric guitars: California ST-H-Series, California ST-S-Series, California DC Series and Florence series.
The California electric guitar series is based on an improved version of the mythical Fender Stratocaster. In addition to the standard range, they also have a Custom Shop that manufactures custom instruments (electric guitars and electric basses), although delivery time is long.
