Just enjoy looking at cool, funky, unusual guitars? I AM NOT SELLING THESE ITEMS and you cannot contact sellers via the comments section of this blog. These 110 RD's are incredible little two channel amps that have dual 6L6 output tubes, seperate eq for each channel, a single 12AX7 for one channel (phase inverter and distortion) and somehow push 50 tube watts thru a single 10 inch ceramic speaker.
You must click thru to the original Craigslist postings. This stands up well against a Super Champ, though the distortion is less high gan - oh and did I mention it also has footswitchable REVERB!
It was moderately successful in the 1980s, but the Sabre never matched the Stingray's popularity and it was discontinued in 1991.
This amp is 50w it has lots of power and is very easy to haul around.
Everything works as it should, Great for playing out.
Leo and co were never afraid to test an idea, refine it if it could be made better, or scrap it if they were just not on the right track. After selling the Fender guitar company to CBS in 1985, Leo went on to work as a consultant for Music Man before starting G&L, and the innovations didn’t stop.

From what I've seen on the quick search of the market, they seem very reasonably priced. I fell in love with my bandmate's 210 RP about 30 years ago. Just played through one at a jam and it was a perfect match for my dyna equipped gretsch.
About 15 years ago I scored one and it's been my go-to amp ever since. Never had paid these any attention till now but they are clean, warm n punchy and not too scooped.
Music Man listed the following features when they launched the Sabre bass in the late 1970s: Body Music Man described the Sabre bass as follows in their 1982 catalog: "The Sabre bass offers tremendous flexibility to suit individual playing styles, action characteristics, and string selections.
Incorporating many of the same quality features described with the Sting Ray, the Sabre bass is meticulously crafted to provide exceptional tonal range and control. each is registered, with the serial number stamped right on the bridge.
Meanwhile, the Cutlass serves up an alder body, maple neck with 25.5" rosewood or maple fingerboard, as well as a Music Man Modern vibrato, Schaller M6-IND locking tuners and a trio of Music Man mid-60s-style single coils.
Now, although these particular incarnations are new, both of these designs date back to the very early days of Ernie Ball: the Sting Ray Guitar from the mid-70s back when Leo Fender was still involved in the company, while, according to our archives, the Cutlass guitar never actually went into production, although a bass variant existed in the early 80s.
Just played through one at a jam and it was a perfect match for my dyna equipped gretsch. I know I've played 1 or 2 but forgot what I thought of them.
