Description & Specs

The Ernie Ball Music Man Sabre HT "Duello" BFR guitar features a Black limba body, thick 3/8" spalted maple top, and custom Music Man HT humbucking pickups, delivering a big dynamic sound with plenty of sustain. The Sabre's premium spalted maple top is adorned with a tinted natural finish and a thin black burst with contrasting natural binding, which elegantly highlights the raw beauty of the spalted maple wood grain. The roasted figured maple neck and fingerboard are delicately bursted and accented with multicolor pearlescent Atlante block inlays and 22 stainless steel frets. Equipped with black Schaller locking tuners, a 5-way switch, and Music Man's super smooth, modern tremolo system. Each guitar is outfitted with black/gold hardware and ships with a certificate of authenticity.

We're right off the CTA Brown Line 'Paulina' Stop Just North of Belmont and just West of Ashland.

We’re all musicians here at Chicago Music Exchange and we want you to love the gear you get from us. We understand that sometimes you get a piece of gear that doesn’t work out for you. That’s why we offer an easy return policy to take the stress out of purchasing from us.

If you decide you'd like to return an item, please contact your Sales Rep, chat us, or give us a call.

If you placed your order on Amazon or eBay, we advise issuing the return request from your account on the platform of purchase - our Customer Service team will process a refund upon receipt of the item(s).

Most new items may be returned within 30 days of delivery and most vintage & used items may be returned within 3 days of delivery for a full refund, exchange, or store credit. Please pack the product safely for the journey back to us. If the product was shipped for free, the charge will be deducted from refund, unless the reason for the return is outside normal circumstances.

Please contact us as soon as possible if your order was received incorrectly, damaged, or defective. Most times we will give you an RA number (Return Authorization). Why is that number important? This will allow us to speed up the process of the return.

We reserve the right to charge a restocking fee based on the return condition. Some items we just can’t take back for returns, due to a one time function like strings or drums heads and other times it’s not sanitary to do so with microphones or harmonicas. If you aren’t sure if what you bought falls into a category like this, call us (773) 525-7773!

We strive to get your return processed quickly. Most of the time we have it done within two business days. Funds going back to credit cards usually takes two to four business days. CME strives to make sure all customers are happy with their experience. It is our priority to provide great service along with great gear. We always want to be helpful, and open to your feedback.
