Product information - MUSIC MAN BFR Sabre Coral Blue Burst #G98698

Electric guitar with flamed maple top, rosewood neck and custom wound pickups, including case and certificate

The Music Man BFR Sabre Coral Blue Burst convinces as a limited model of the Ball Family Reserve with carefully selected tonewoods and a number of special appointments. With the especially evenly flamed maple top, the exquisite rosewood neck and custom wound pickups, the electric guitar turns out to be an absolute collector's item with outstanding sound and playing characteristics.

Noble tonewoods

For the construction of the BFR Sabre Coral Blue Burst the Luthiers from San Luis Obispo rely on the classic bolt-on construction and precious tonewoods. While the okoumé body lies comfortably on the player thanks to the generous Tummy Cut, the arched curly maple top in blue Burst finish underlines the noble look of the electric guitar. An absolute highlight is furthermore the fivefold screwed rosewood neck, which promises a clear and singing sound. In addition, the silky oil-wax finish of the neck together with the slim neck profile guarantees the best playing characteristics up to the highest registers.

Custom Wound Humbucker

As pickup for the BFR Sabre Music Man chooses two Custom Wound Humbuckers, which deliver a surprisingly wide sound spectrum thanks to the 5-way circuit. The neck pickup, equipped with Ceramic 6 magnets, promises a warm but clear sound for clean chords or singing solos. The bridge pickup, on the other hand, features Alnico V magnets and a slightly increased output for juicy overdrive sounds with precise representation of every note.

Modern Tremolo and Locking Tuner

The bridge on Music Man's BFR Sabre Coral Blue Burst is a modern 2-point tremolo, whose smooth handling allows lively ornamentation of melodies and chords. The edge-free crescent cover also provides a comfortable rest for the heel of the hand. Behind the saddle with compensated string rests that support a clean intonation of the empty played strings, Schaller M6-IND locking tuners ensure an exact and stable tuning, even when frequently reaching for the vibrato lever.
