I got one in Blueburst.
I have small hands and can say that fits me better than my DBK.
Sounds more organic too. I can compare them to a Tele mixed with a Les Paul, plus that modern gain and sound, sice you got 11 pus combinations.
When I bought my DBK in 99, I guess, I got the option to buy one of those EVH Axis and passed by.
Bad choose I did.
Now I got one Axis In Flame Maple Transblue from NAMM 05. Great too !!
I'm very disapointed now with Ibanez since I started to play EBMM.
My DBK remains untouched since then.
Nothing against Ibanez, but just prefer now EBMM
They sound better naturally and play better
For shred Ibanez is better but without personality. You need too much gera to sound really pro and deep.
