A schematic is on the last page of the owners manual: http://www.cbtricks.com/radios/browning ... bre_om.pdf

I'll dig out my SAMS to get the hi-fi mod made up.

I'll post the mods shortly. Here is the SAMS schematic:

You can right click and save the pictures to your drive to blow them up full size. They are 300dpi so they are large and clear.

Receive:
Change C39 to a 1uF mylar/polyester or non-polarized electrolytic


Transmit:
Change C87 and C85 to .22uF or .47uF or 1uF, mylar/disc/polyester or non-polarized electrolytic


Transmit & Receive:
Change C72 to .22uF or .47uF or 1uF, mylar/disc/polyester or non-polarized electrolytic

More highs on rec and trans:
make C73 lower in value

The reason I posted a range of values for the transmit caps is you have to be careful how low you go on radios with audio transformers. I've never converted a Sabre before so I can't give exact values. Experimenting is half the fun!
