I did work on the Sabre and the Stingray models with Leo Fender the
stingray proved to be more popular. Many players love that model.
The magnets on the pickups were strong and the model with two pickups ad tuning and buzzing problems because the magnets pulled on the strings.
One of the things that I recommended to Leo was to reduce the magnetic pull.
He later came out with he pickups that were used on the G&L that had adjustable pole pieces.
This solved the problem by then the sabre was discontinued.
