    God dammit. Here I thought that I had escaped GAS, at least temporarily. Any idea as to when we can order these?
  2. They are to debut at summer NAMM so I guess shortly thereafter orders will be taken.

    Guess I'll have to start saving my pennies now!

    I've been wanting to do this to my StingRay 5 for some time now! This is big news!!!
  6. These basses are gonna SELL man... I can't count the number of times I've heard people ask for a reissue of the Saber, but they just skipped that step and went straight into dual Hummer Stingrays and Sterlings. I hope the bridge pickup placement stays the same; either way, I see a fretless in my future. Damnit Sterling... :)

    These basses sound cool but I wonder if the Stingray sound can be maintained withe new pickups added. My experience with single coil humbucker basses is that they sound very little like Stingrays.

    IMO these new models will look like jazz MM type of basses, the neck pickup will be more a rounder sound .. This will kill dan lakin if it is like that

    Just when you thought the GAS was cured....

    It's utterly hopeless. My towel is thrown in.
  11. I'm gonna be going for the HSC Sterling i think. Hopefully they'll take my suggestion and go with a translucent canary yellow :), if not translucent orange or red will do i guess =)
    White ice I already have my order waiting to go to long and mcquade!

    Here's the HH SR5 Bovine photoshopped...


    That just looks so right ;)
  13. Wow, I love that one, but I think the electronic will be different!!!
    Sweet SR5....

  14. Ohhhhhhhhhhh yeah. I've been GASing for a Sabre reissue since I heard Eric Wilson of Sublime used one. A dream come true this is...

    Oh, man...that would be insanely beautiful. I, too, would go for that color, if it were available. I wonder if they do a split-able neck pickup, will doing the single coil option on each give an overall Jazz vibe, or would we have a semi-Lakland thing going on?

    I was actually considering replacing one of my SR5's with a Bongo HH, but now . . . I'll just wait for one of these!
