  1. 1988/9 Sunburst Sabre 8.1 lbs
  2. Nice! Tell us more - which years etc?
  3. Something like this, perhaps? 😎
  4. Are you sure about the weight? That would be 12.8 lbs.
  5. That site still seems available, as far as I can tell.
  6. Only what I've downloaded over time They're mostly a collection of spec sheets plus some price lists etc going with it.
  7. Indeed. Fire Engine Red (stamp REDFE) was a (short-lived) production colour in the late eighties. It's listed in the 1988 catalogue and also in the spring 1989 edition but by the summer 1989 edition it's gone. Pretty rare. (And beautiful!)
  8. I think you mean the resistors. The reissues do have capacitors - it's the resistors that are missing.
  9. I enquired with EBMM Customer Service and there's only four of these coming to Europe - one each for Germany, Italy, France and the UK. There's some excellent info on the website from the Project Lead Engineer about the build process. Apparently he spent two years working on it, the attention to detail is amazing, and with the very limited numbers I'm not surprised it's expensive. All proceeds going to charity, so what's not to like!
  10. As drT said, Trans Reds from the '90s are usually over alder and tend to be a bit darker in colour. You can see the difference here: The one on the left is a 1987, the one on the right a 1990. (The SR5 is from 1989.)
  11. OK a bit of unobtainium, just for you... 😀 1988 Peach
  12. Great basses, too right! 1989 Sunburst, 1990 Vintage Sunburst
  13. Lovely! The best period for EBMM. Classic colour combo, too!
  14. Matching headstocks were standard on custom colour Jazz Basses - with the exception of the Blonde finish - from late 1962 onwards for the rest of the Sixties.
