Nice. I'd love to see what one of those newer lever switch Sabres are like. I've only had experience with my own 83 with the older toggle switch set up. Mine weighs 9 lbs even on my digital scale.

The Owl Farm Sabre landed in my post office box downunder, this morning [smilie=grinning-smiley-003.gif]

I scrounged a key-ring screw driver at work and managed to get the neck and the machine heads on without drama. Taking her home in 15 mins to string her up with a new set of Slinkies and check the intonation etc. Looking forward to giving this one a workout [smilie=grinning-smiley-044.gif]

Thanks! I would be VERY reluctant to part with this one... a really honest, toneful, musical bass. It just sounds and feels "right".

Cheers
