    Killer, I mean KILLER 1990 USA made Musicman Sabre. She's been upgraded with a Made in England Status carbon-fiber neck. Neck is dead-straight, frets level and action LOW and free of any buzz. Also, no dreaded Musicman deadspots on the D&G strings that plague most Stingrays and Sabres thanks to the Status neck!

    Factory 3-band preamp and 5-position coil selector switch. Sooooo many different tones. Extremely versatile. Reasonable weight too considering she has an ash body and carbon fiber neck. Just 9.6 lbs according to my postal scale.

    Other changes/upgrades are and acrylic battery cover, and a heavy Lakland style bridge. I don't have the original neck or bridge. The bass is no closet-queen and has dings, etc.

    The bass plays and sounds absolutely incredible. $895 split shipping. CONUS shipping only please. Again, no trades please. 20171203_154019-1.jpg 20171203_154044-1.jpg 20171203_154052-1.jpg 20171203_154110-1.jpg 20171203_153930-1.jpg 20171203_153942-1.jpg 20171203_153953-1.jpg 20171203_154010-1.jpg

    Very tempting. I happen to have a Sabre bridge and a pair of the Sabre pickups from this era. Plus I love carbon fibre necks. I own seven composite neck basses at present. Let me think on this, always wanted a Cutlass and this is darn close to it.
