Alright, I am about to do it. I found this '77 Sabre that I can not resist getting. I understand that it is pre-EB so it is the 2band eq with the toggle/phase switches. I have never played or heard a Sabre so I need everyone's input that I can get for this one. I would be dishing out a s###load of money so i want to get as much info as I can get...about $2200. If anyone can lease tell me specifically the differences in sound and playability of the pre-Eb Sabre's and the later 80's let me know. Also I would like everyone's comments and opinions about the Sabre. I currently own a Sterling but I am looking to have just one Musicman that can rip so that I can also later get a nice fender jazz. I play reggae,ska, punk kinda music if that will help.I love that deep bottom end bass. Help me out everyone.
