Axis of Evil

I just picked this baby up. Any other Axis players here? Opinions?

I love it, looks sweet! *

Ever since the Petrucci came out, I have paid more attention to the EB stuff. *I am of the opinion that only the AXIS and the JPM are the EBs for me. *I especially like the simplicity of the single volume and toggle switch, add that sweetass burst to the Birdseye maple neck and you've got a winner with a Floyd Rose!

See why paying ENDORSERS to promote and advertise their equipment is an effective business strategy.

Nice axes, just not my mug of coffee ... glen

I like those guitars a lot. *However, I still think I prefer the toggle switch location of the old EVH model better. *Either way it rocks.

I bought my Axis about 2 and 1/2 years ago. *I don't play it much any more as I've made the leap to 7's and primarily play my Carvin DC747C and my RG2027 but it is an awesome guitar. *Great neck, pups, trem, and beautiful woods. *EBMM makes great stuff. *Wish I had the coin to get an EBMM Petrucci 7. *



Here's some pics of the flame maple neck:

Good point Glen. *

But if Petrucci had played Jackson or Fender and switched to MM, I probably wouldn't have been as *interested. *I guess it depends on the individual's niche, however I do agree that it is a good marketing scheme.

I guess that's why so many hang our around here.
