    Wondering about the sabres original pickup lever?

    Was the original Sabre pickup lever a three way lever or a four way lever? That is was top, middle both and bottom bottom? Or was it one of those that can split coils and stuff! Restoring a Sabre and wondering!

    But what does it mean?! Does it mean 4?

    The above came with a 1987 Ernie Ball Sabre Bass. It's the same as a Pre-EB Sabre. The switch is a five way.

    Position 1 (neck pickup, both coils) starts with the lever, at the end of its travel, towards the neck. Position 5 is at the bridge end of its travel.
