    Ngd sabre

    Hello all. Im new to the forum and also just got my first Ernie Ball. A Sabre in the Cobra color. still haven't got it dialed in action was high as hell. Not sure about the pickups they are wood mounted and sit pretty low with no adjustment and seem a little weak.. May try a little foam under to raise them. Top is a Beauty though.

    Thanks for picking up a Sabre! I recommend starting with a truss rod adjustment first.

    Finally finished setting up the Sabre. The bridge pickup gets really sweet and aggressive after i raised about an 1/8 of an inch. action is pretty good got it at 1.5 MM from top of 12th fret to bottom of the string on the low and high E if i drop high E to 1.2 MM it frets out. not sure what the factory spec is. holding 1st fret and 12 fret i can slide a business card under the 7th fret so that should be good for neck relief. any suggestions on my setup or if i have it all wrong let me know. The guitar is a real beauty and is a keeper for sure.

    I have my action a little higher than you, but I also play 8s. I have my relief set at 0.25mm at the 8th fret
    Always very personal stuff, so YMMV

    Beautiful guitar. I saw a Musicman, a Sabre in a shop about three weeks or so back and can’t stop thinking about it. The materials and workmanship were just amazing. Prior I had not seen one before, hence, I’m here now to learn. Congrats.

    It is indeed. That color on the top combined with the wood hue of the roasted neck and the matte black hardware, very classy.
