The EBMM Sabre Guitar Is A Feelings Machine

Ernie Ball Music Man has made some of the most consistently flawless guitars that I have had the good fortune to try in my career as a gear reviewer, and their new-for-2020 Sabre is no exception.

In the above video, I struggle to explain the effect the Sabre had on me as a player, and how it inspired me to play differently, and in a lot of ways, better, than I usually do.

Click the video above to get a glimpse into what the Sabre sounds like and some thoughts I had on whether this guitar is a Strat or a Les Paul or, like, what the hell is it anyway?

As Editor-in-Chief of Gear Gods, I've been feeding your sick instrument fetishism and trying unsuccessfully to hide my own since 2013. I studied music on both coasts (Berklee and SSU) and now I'm just trying to put my degree to some use. That's a music degree, not an English one. I'm sure you noticed.
