1980 Pre-EB Music Man Sabre Bass *SOLD*
£1500
Helsinki, Finland

Recommended Posts

I'm selling my beautiful left handed 1980 Pre-EB Music Man Sabre Bass.

 

Original sunburst finish in excellent condition with only minor wear. Everything works 100% 

The bass plays nice and action can be set low without excessive buzz. There's a slight dip in the neck around 9th fret so the neck isn't 100% consistently flat. That caused some fret buzz when I got the bass, but that has been fixed by professionally leveling the frets. Now frets are slightly taller around that area to compensate the low spot. Got away with the problem and the bass plays now without any problems. When at some point the neck is going through a refret, the fingerboard should be sanded 100% flat before installing the new frets.

 

Specs:

Body: Poplar

Neck: 1-piece Maple

Scale: 34"

Nut: 42mm

Pickup & controls: 2x humbucker // volume, active treble & bass, 3-way PU-selector, phase switch and bright switch

Weight: 4,44kg

 

Bass comes with a gigbag. I prefer shipping the bass in a box with neck detached, but arranging a hardshell case for this beauty is also an option.

Payment via Bank Transfer or PayPal.

Shipping to UK ~80£ (Yes, the Finnish postal service is quite expensive)

 

Price

1250 £ // 1450€ 

 

Regards,

Aleksi K
