The one that got away - 1987 Saber S540

I've sold a bunch of guitars over the years. I only ever regretted selling this one:


Sold it right here in the Classifieds for $375.

I never really went actively looking for another one, but I always thought.. if I found another at a reasonable price, I'd undo my error.

This week, on Craigslist, one showed up in my favorite color for these, Desert Sun Yellow. Sent an e-mail, drove a hundred miles... I'm a Saber owner again.

The one thing that's not original... It has a Duncan Distortion.

I'm not in love with it. I will have to find something else.

Is it not as good as your original or have your tastes just changed?

edit - or were you referring to the pickup?

Thanks. Just referring to the pickup.

The guitar itself is great.

I just read the copy from the advert I posted above..... Guitars have been marketed with a lot of meaningless features in the past, but aerodynamic?!

I doubt that's an important feature.
