    I would not pay that for a Sabre without the original electronics. I think it is worth $800-$900 tops.

    I don't think Sabre's were made in 1991, but what Dr. Cheese said is right, if modded the price should be around $800-$900.

    I love Bartolinis but would never put them in a Music Man. Ever.

    If you're in europe that's actually a good price for the bass.

    Thanks for help... I'm from Lettland and transport expenses from US are something about 500$ so I think I'll take it. Owner will give me one day to try this base, then I'll make final decision.

    I would like to know - why no bartolinis on musicman???

    The sound of Bartolinis are the exact opposite of the classic Music Man sound. Barts are fine, but they are very mellow, and Music Man basses are very aggressive. For instance, compare Lakland 55-94s/55-02s with Barts to Stingrays, they are night and day.

    Thank you for explenation... I'll consider that when trying this base. It will be a good reason to bergain.

    Maybe it will be an interesting midway, because I need an agressive soun when playing rock, but I'm playing pop and r&b too - so then I need soft tone. Let it see how this base sounds.
