1984 Musicman Sabre Vintage White *SOLD*
Clonmel Ireland

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Time to thin out the herd as they say (hope I won’t regret this 🙄), so reluctantly, first up is my rare vintage white Music Man Sabre from the first year (1984) that Ernie Ball bought the company. Further info can be found here http://www.musicmanbass.global/


This bass plays great, truss rod turns easily, has all the features of a pre-Ernie ball (with the exception of fret marker on the 21st fret), skunk stripe, original head stock decals front and back, horse shoe style bridge etc 


4 bolt Maple neck with lovely patena running through, there are a few chips in the finish which I’ve tried to capture, Body is dated 29 May 84, Neck is dated 6 Dec 84. Sold with hard case. Serial number C006214


I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves. 


Not looking for trades on this one as I’ve too many basses (for me) currently. 


Priced at £1390 incl. shipping to the U.K.

      Got these to upgrade a bass I no longer have so time to move them on.
      Both in used but alright condition.
      Got some spare screws I can chuck in now I think.
      £45 posted uk for the Delano.

      Next up on the GAS relief project is my SB14.  This bass has a couple of significant upgrades.  Firstly it has the J East MMSR 4-knob, 3-band preamp and also the pickup is a Seymour Duncan SMB4A; the one with Alnico magnets.  I bought it like this so don't have the original bits.
      Other than that in very nice condition.  By my scales the bass weighs a nadge over 9lbs and will come with a decent gig bag.
      As ever I'd prefer to meet up and am happy to jump in the car and meet half way somewhere rather than risk a courier if humanly possible.  Courier would be the last resort and will be at cost to you.
      If you have any questions please ask, or indeed if you want any more pictures.

      This is my first five-string bass. I am a classic example of someone who took this on far too early in their bass-playing career. As a result, it has barely been played since its purchase from new in late 2013. Reluctantly I am looking to sell this beautiful piece of kit manufactured arguably by the best house in the USA.    Currently sporting Rotosound Jazz flatwound strings, which were recently mounted and calibrated by a local guitar technician. It comes complete with a spare set of roundwound strings which were factory supplied and barely played.    This is a versatile instrument and needs a loving home. Active humbucker pickups are great (battery easily replaced), the maple neck feels good and not too cumbersome even with smallish hands like mine, and the rosewood body is a dream to look at. Usual EQ and pickup selectors are all working great and produce rich and varied sound depending on your needs.    It feels like a forced sale because I would ideally keep this bass guitar until I am truly good enough to play it, but in reality the best outcome is for someone to pick up a nearly-new bass at a discounted price and for me to use the proceeds on lessons with my 4-string.    Collection from Bristol or posted via courier to the UK (cost included in the price). Please get in touch with any questions or make me an offer!
