Thought I would celebrate my win with you guys. I was recently looking for a hardcase for another guitar, and I came across an auction - a hardcase, with an Ibanez Sabre, I didn't bid but post auction they did a fixed price offer $350 NZD.
I had never even heard of the guitar, and thought nothing of it until I collected it. I now can't believe my luck of acquiring what seems to be a quite rare guitar. It had no pickups in it, and wiring was completely gone. I did some research and with the help of a friend we've wired it back up and it sounds great. It's going to need refretting soon but not a major - someone obviously played this guitar a lot!
It's a 1987 Ibanez Sabre 540s. Missing the Ibanez backstop unfortunately. I left the locking nuts at work so they're not in the picture, but I do have them. Missing the tremolo arm - but should be easy enough to replace. Would love the beehive knobs, but just not sure I can justify the cost to myself. I wasn't too sure about pickup selection, but what I have in there I'm happy with. I havn't restrung it yet (when I do the posts winding will be a lot tidier!)
Neck pickup - Seymour Duncan Lil Screaming Demon
Middle pickup - Seymour Duncan Cool Rails
Bridge pickup (Set up for coil tapping) - Seymour Duncan TB-4
Hope you like what I've done!
