NAMM 2020: Retailing from $3199, Ernie Ball’s brand-new Sabre series has definitely been turning some heads over at NAMM. The guitars feature a lightweight Okoume body, with a thick carved and book-matched premium maple top and natural binding, along with custom Ernie Ball Music Man humbucking pickups. 

It will come in four finishes: Cobra, Boujee Burst, Honeysuckle, and Blue Moonstone. The neck is made from roasted figured maple and comes with a choice of rosewood, ebony, or maple fingerboard, Schaller locking tuners, a 5-way switch, and Ernie Ball Music Man’s famously smooth modern tremolo system.
