    1987 EBMM Sabre, 3 or 5 way switch?

    I recently acquired an 87 Sabre and the selector switch is plum worn out. No clicking or detent, it just moves freely. It has a three band preamp and Iím just curious if it would have been a typical three way switch and could I use a generic replacement?

    EBMM OEM replacement items are priced very affordably.

    Just contact customer service and bada bing bada boom !

    Hey Scott. It's a 5 way. Ditto what Golem said. I'm sure they would also help with wiring and control schematics if you need them.

    Found this in my archives, it came with a 1987 Sabre that was sold on Talkbass in early 2009.
