The Ernie Ball Music Man Sabre HT guitar is the newest edition to the ever-growing family of Ernie Ball Music Man instruments. Featuring the familiar shape and feel of the original Sabre, the Sabre HT showcases new custom Music Man pickup technology inspired by over a decade of guitar string research delivering an incredibly dynamic and responsive playing experience. The pickups are able to achieve an ultra-high-output, powerful low-end response while retaining a distinctively clean, clear tone and definition at lower volume levels. The HT (Heat Treated) bridge pickup utilizes patent-pending heat-treated pole pieces with a large ceramic magnet and an overwound coil that gives the pickup higher frequency harmonics and excellent touch sensitivity. The Sabre's custom-wound neck humbucker also features a large ceramic magnet and has been wound specifically to pair with the Sabre's HT bridge pickup. In addition, the electronics package includes a push-push adjustable 20dB boost function and a transparent buffered output for complete tonal consistency wherever your volume control is set. In other respects, the Sabre HT shares many of the original Sabre guitar specifications but also features a contoured Okoume body with a thick book-matched plain or roasted maple top(depending on body color), plain and roasted maple neck options, and 22 stainless steel frets.

Inspired by over a decade of electric guitar string research

Incorporating the principles and insights that contributed to the development of Cobalt and M-Steel Slinkys resulting in a new material-based innovation for pickups

More Output and Dynamic Range

Outperforms normal spec pickups by providing extra output and excellent touch sensitivity

Stronger Low End and Extended Frequency Response

HT pickups display a more powerful bass response and expansion of higher frequency harmonics

Sabre HT Bridge pickup

The Sabre HT (Heat Treated) bridge pickup outperforms normal spec pickups with more output, dynamic range, and excellent touch sensitivity. The pickup not only achieves ultra-high output but also garners a powerful low-end response while retaining a distinctively clean, clear tone and definition at lower volume levels.

Sabre HT Neck Pickup

The custom-wound neck humbucker also features a large ceramic magnet and has been wound specifically to pair with the Sabre's HT bridge pickup.

Push Push Boost Circuit

The Sabre's HT preamp boost is activated by a push-push volume knob and is factory set to 12db. Via a trim pot inside the control cavity, the preamp can be adjusted up to 20db if needed for heavy rhythm parts or high octane soloing whenever the user chooses.

Transparent Buffered Output

No matter where your volume control is set, the transparent buffered output preserves your signal from high-frequency loss and keeps your tone bright and strong.
