If I had one wish, it would be for a regular trem bar on the modern tremolo. I'm not a fan of the thin, vintage bar with the tip. Small gripe though, love the guitar. May end up getting another one down the line.
    What would you compare the pickups to? I'm really curious about the Sabre. The neck and the pickups are really what I'm curious about.

    Thanks!

    The pickups feel like med output, they’re bright but not thin, a lot of clarity. The neck pickup is really clear, even with a good amount of gain. The neck profile reminds me of my JP15 neck, but with the rounder fretboard radius (10” vs 17’ on the JP), it feels more comfortable to me.

    EBMM - a guitar like no other.
    Even we mancave noodlers can appreciate the perfection that is an EBMM guitar.

    That is a beautiful guitar. I'm curious about the Sabre but totally sold on the 1 5/8 nut on my LIII's and Cutlass. Even my Suhr, which I still love, takes a few minutes of noodling around to get used to the wider nut. Great score on your part.
