A classic Music Man resurrected with a myriad of tonal options and styles.
A Music Man favorite is back in action. After 20 years the Classic Sabre bass has been reissued much to the surprise and joy of the Sabre faithful. And although this is a classic design it has all of Music Man's modern goodies to bring it up to speed in the 21st century. It features a beautiful Ash body and Music Man top loading chrome plated hardened steel bridge plate with "Classic" stainless steel saddles and adjustable mute pads. It's got a 2-band active preamp and controls for vol, treble, bass and a 5-way lever pickup selector.
The Sabre comes with a standard 16 pole humbucker with Alnico magnets and solid black cover and 8 pole humbucker with Alnico magnets and solid black cover, with patented Music Man “Silent Circuit”, which reduces hum and retains true single coil sound.
