    I'm letting go my 79 Sabre bass. It's all original and comes with OHSC. The neck is fantastic and pickups sound incredible. You get a much wider tone selection than with the Stingray. There are some wear spots in the finish and checking marks. Let me know if you have any questions. Asking $1900 shipped. PRICE LOWERED $1750 SHIPPED

    I am trying to pick my jaw off of the ground. I just bought a dead mint 79/80 fretless Sabre. This would make a perfect match. Damn home rennovations.

    Free bump. This will make some one REALLY happy.

    Wow that is nice. I've never been a huge EB/MM fan but if I had to get one, this would be the one to get. Love the double pickups.
     
  7. Do you have more pics? Some high resolution versions of the above and maybe showing close ups of the wear spots? Also, what's the condition on the frets? Are there any marks or scratches on the back of the neck? Is the neck straight or does it have any bumps?

    oh this is mine... oh yes.

    Ya hear that footie????
     
  14. I own the very same bass (year, sunburst, alder body, etc.) with the exception that mine's neck is stock fretless ebony fingerboard. Everything else matches this bass.

    I have held on to this bass since 1989, for the simple reason it is absolutely KILLER!! top notch quality, huge sound

    I have owned 2 Laklands, 1 EB MM, and tried many G&L's ... Let me tell you, that 1980 Sabre will cook them for breakfast!

    4 string players don't pass this opportunity, cause these are super rare in that great of a condition

    Atrapp: Congrats! Welcome to the Sabre Club. It's a very, very bad addiction.

    Bass is a problem... one or two more and I'll be able to play a different bass every day of the month!
