hELLO MY FRIENDS,
WELL.... I'm (Don Mare) the NEW guy who's been doing all the custom set up stuff for Eric & Rome's stage guitars since they started the new project..
I know that Eric used Jazz and P's on most the CDs from old Sublime
The Sabre was "not well loved" Eric played it cause its what they had. but preferred Jazz's and P's in the studio...
we tried to recreate a Sabre like instrument for the new reformed bands tour, using Music man parts and a P bass pickup and a Aguilar Preamp OB1, but we pulled it off the tour midway thru due to complaints of UN-comfy neck/back shape..
( I own that bass now, I had over 30 hours of repairs and test work on that monster!)
we then concentrated on the CYLINDER (Celinder) basses from Denmark he owns, their Custom made P-basses ones Pink ones white
they both have my hand wound pickups I made for Eric a 10k fatter/ taller coil- its my version or my take on what P bass pickups should be ( I hope) LOL and the Aguilar OB1 pre-amps on-board both..
THIS IS WHAT the PINK Celinder bass LOOKED LIKE PRIOR TO THE buttons being artfully glued on to it and the pickguard is removed
there's a ton of guys after Eric sound with bases similar to the Sabre but its not really whats on those hit songs..
