Sandberg Guitars was founded in 1986 by Holger Stonjek with his friend Gerd Gorzelke. Stonjek had been training as a piano builder in Brunswick at a piano factory with the address of Am Sandberg in Ehmen - he named the company 'Sandberg' after that address. Sandberg Guitars manufactures several series of bass guitars including the Basic Series, Bullet Series, California T-Series, California V-Series, Electra Series and more. In addition, there is a Custom Shop for electric guitars and bass guitars.
