Came across one today, in good shape for a good price. LOVED the feel of it. Can't judge the tone, cause the store had ZERO bass amps (vintage guitar shop). I'm a Jazz lover... i've played some MM's and dug them, but not enough to replace my Jazz. I'm gonna see if the store will let me check out the Sabre for a few days so I can play it thru my rig. What do you guys think? if a StingRay or Sterling couldn't drag me away from my Jazz, could the Sabre? Maybe gutting the active BS and adding some coil taps to the humbuckers?
