I played a musicman Sabre at my local used gear store today. Wow! I loved it. Possibly the best bass for slap I ever played. It was a 70's three bolt, maple fretboard, three knobs three small blade switches. Ugly yellowish colr that was very worn. I played about 10 minutes, loving it and giving it a realy good spankling, it sounded so good. I put it back in the rack and grabbed abother bass to check out. Well some young guy walks up behind me grabs the bass and walks away. I had to go look and he waws standing at the counter with his wallet out. I had to ask, are you buying that bass? He shook his head yes. Man. I didnt have the money at the time $699. but I was sad. Anyone own one? If you do I envy you. And my band is gonna cover aeroplane by red hot chili peppers! would of been perfect.
