i wanna say korean *but i havnt checked yet
after playin for a few days, it could probably use some new pickups, i havnt decided yet tho. the axis 1 humbucker just sounds too overpowering, and the Axis 2 sounds almost a little thin. im still playing with my amp settings too. nice smooth pick attack on both, unlike my RG. but the RG was MADE for distortion (after i was done with it LOL)
one thing that strikes me as odd tho, i have an axis 1 in the neck of my RG. its all black and has hex head pole pieces. the axis 1 on my artist has chrome pole pieces, with a flat head screw driver top to em. did they change them?
