      Comments about Ernie Ball Music Man Classic Sabre Electric Bass:

      I owned an original Sabre back in the mid 80's and this is a much nicer bass over all. The sound and playability are great and it's much lighter than the original. The five way pickup selector gives you four great sounds (position 4 that gives you one coil of the neck pickup is so weak it's useless IMHO). I love MusicMan basses and this one is a keeper for sure. I would buy it again in a heart beat.

        Comments about Ernie Ball Music Man Classic Sabre Electric Bass:

        Having played on a 1987 sabre bass for about 15 years, I figured I'd give my two cents ...
        It actually does sound pretty close to mine - not identical, but great tone none the less. The feel of the bass is very familiar to that of mine, although the glossy neck back doesn't feel near as comfortable as the worn out back of my own but that only comes with time and use, or sandpaper. The craftsmanship seemed really good, knobs felt solid and all that. The tone is great, fendery with some meat on it. It's really been a do anything bass for me for a long time, and If one of these were worn in a little, it would probably play like a dream. Really solid, two thumbs up, great remake of the original.
