    NGD Sabre incoming

    Found a great used deal on a Sabre, should be delivered in a few days. I’m so psyched about this one. The Sabre had not been on my radar. I just placed a custom order for something else, but I couldn’t pass this up. Sabre owners, tell me what you love about it!

    Super nice! Does yours have a birdseye or flamed neck?

    I've noticed that some of the newer Sabres I've seen have birdseye instead of the heavily flamed maple, but I much prefer the flamed ones. I'd be sad if MM got through all of their flamed stock and are switching to birdseye for these.

    Light flame on the back of the neck. The fretboard doesn’t have any figuring, pretty dark.

    Received my Sabre a couple of days ago. After a new set of strings, it plays perfectly, no setup adjustments needed. I checked the serial # and it was just built on March. Only strange thing is the previous owner swapped out the strap pins for some crappy ones. I ordered some EBMM replacements & then it will be pretty much perfect.

    After a few days with the Sabre, I have to say I'm liking it even more than I thought I would. Neck is super-comfortable. Actually feels right in between my JP15 & Axis necks. Both pickups are outstanding, I'm especially impressed with the neck pickup. They both have great clarity, they're bright without sounding thin & they feel like medium output, which I love. 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.

    Man, I am loving this guitar more each day. I’ve owned (and still own) several EBMM guitars, so I shouldn’t be surprised, but the Sabre just has so much mojo. Fighting the urge to order another one in the deep blue finish.
