Sabre - twin neck 6+12 string

Only ever seen 1 of these in 20 years and (as previously mentioned) I foolishly passed up the chance to buy it.

So question is - does anyone on here own one of these? Have never seen another one and as I understand, there were only 3000 ever made!

I've still got mine. Was going to sell it in my big liquidation, but it was one of the few I kept.

There are some pics of it in my collection thread. It's in storage right now, so I can't get you any new ones. Remind me again in 3 years and I'll take some fresh pics for ya...

I want that Sabre if he ever sells

Next on my list to replace the 540PII will be a Desert Yellow S540 - rare but I have a several months to look for one!

I think I ended up keeping 17? A lot more than I expected to keep, but in the end, I'm glad. I've got tremendous heartache from parting with the ones I did sell. Ended up putting most of them in storage anyway (which I was trying to avoid!), but I had to store a bunch of furniture too, so... The only ones I'm bringing to Hawaii are my AT100, one of the Kotzens, and my RG560s. Oh, and one bass.

Just waiting on a trip to Japan to start rebuilding the collection with J-Customs!

Managed to pick this up a few months ago.



The guy I bought this from in Sydney ran it on eBay twice and it didn't sell so I got it at a reduced price - Sometimes I must be the only one crazy enough to buy the whackiest Ibanez guitars that appear on eBay here in Sydney.

He told me a story that there are only 40 of these worldwide and only 3 in Australia. You've got a figure of 3000 worldwide, how do we find out how many were actually produced ?
