    Wow! Really nice! What's the neck profile like? Is it similar to any of the EBMMs?

    They're not that similar. I've had my modern for about a year, but neck profile, body wood, pickups, hardware are all very different. Neck is deeper on the modern, fretboard is flatter up high as well, jumbo frets vs the tall medium on the Sabre. They're both really light. I prefer the pickups on the Sabre, really clear & articulate. I replaced the gotoh 510 bridge on my modern with the new wilkinson w locking saddles, and also swapped the SSH+ in the bridge for an SSV+. I love them both, but they're pretty different.

    As far as the EBMMs that I've owned, I find it most similar to my JP15, but with a little more depth & a rounder fretboard radius. When I go from my Axis to the JP, it takes me a minute to adjust, but the Sabre is kind of in between the two. Really comfortable.

    Thanks! No one has one in my area to try out. Do you notice the neck width compared to the Axis?

    Thanks for the detailed reply, the modern was the only guitar in your list that I've played. Guess I'll just have to try out a Sabre myself.

    I know the neck is slightly wider at the nut, but it’s such a minor difference, I can’t imagine it being an issue for someone. The Axis neck carve is a little deeper as well, but again, not a huge difference.

    Do you hear or feel any differences between your two Sabres?

    Eh, that top sucks.

    LoL. I can’t agree more with Glenn, that combo on the Sabre is amazing. That’s a gorgeous guitar. Well done!

    Curious how much does each weigh? Was always my concern about the Sabre being too heavy.
