I played a Sabre in GC a little while ago when I was picking up another guitar. Long story short, the guitar I bought got returned due to a microphonic pickup. Unfortunately for my wallet, the Sabre was still there and my regular sales guy made me an offer I couldn’t refuse.
I haven’t seen much out there about these, but I can tell you they’re awesome. The neck is on the thin side, but definitely feels more full than the Ibanez wizards I’ve played. Much more comfortable.
I don’t know what magic ebmm worked with the pickups, but they’re perfect. I know it’s honeymoon time, but I can’t find anything I don’t like about this guitar. Setup was spot on straight off the rack.
I’ve got 25 years playing music man now, ever since I got my first guitar as a teenager.
Well done, Ball and Co!
No real beauty shots yet, been distracted by playing it.
