    These skinny-neck Sabres are to die for. Most comfy necks I've ever played.

    So gorgeous.

    I love a skinny neck. I find the new StingRays too wide to be comfortable. May have to try a Sabre at some point. Not that I have that kind of money right now...

    Stunning. Possibly the very best production basses ever made by anyone.

    These play like butter. Great comfortable basses from Leo's creations. I traded a Fender 6 back in '63 for mine. Still have it!!

    Amazing. I've always wanted one of those (especially in that colour). Sadly I'm not in the position to buy one at this time.

    This has been a “dream bass” of mine since my teen years. I had a black / maple 78 Stingray (foolishly sold) but always wished it was a SABRE

    Good luck with the sale!
