Herecy? Heresey? - I've stepped over to the dark side...

Hi, all...

As you may have guessed, I no longer lust solely after a JEM of any description... I went to a music shop yesterday and tried out a...

*DAH DAH DAH!* EB/MM Axis

What a guitar. The neck was an offset V shape that got thinner towards the higher strings, and it was SOOOO SMOOTH! It was the perfect thickness and the perfect width. The only problem? Two of them, actually - no carved arm rest, and £1299.

Start saving.

Btw, I've never tried a Jem. :mc:

EB/MM makes great quality stuff...lots of birdseye necks. *I like feel of the Luke, but not a lot else about it.

Herecy? Heresey?

Why is it any shop I've ever seen or read their ads who stock EB/MM NEVER have a Morse in stock and they looks way better than a Luke.

I've got a Luke and a Silhouette Special and love them both. After getting my Jems, my California Strat just didn't seem to compare well in the playability department, so I started casting about for a good "Strat" to replace it with - the Silhouette Special is that guitar, and I prefer it to any Fender Custom Shop production strat I've pulled off the wall in the stores around here (and I must have played 15 of the things!)

The Luke was a fluke - I was actually shopping for a JS1000, but I picked up the Luke out of idle curriosity and left the store with it instead... sorry Ibanez :biggrin:

I've actually tried this one out at a local store... damn expensive. But it plays nicely and sounds great!

The only problem is that it's got too many damn pickups than I know what to do with!!!
