Now if we could just get an OLP Triaxis made in China for $199 that would be great!

He says on his site that he's debuting it... could it be perhaps at NAMM?

someone on the petrucciforums emailed olp about it and they said it is doubtful they will have either 7 string or piezo options. They almost definantly will have cheaper pups and probably a different bridge, i'm hoping for a nice hardtail and cheap pups so with just a change of pickups it'll still be a mean axe

Oh. Well a seven would have been nice, but I'm sure you could pop on a Wilkinson, some locking tuners and some Dimarzios and still only pay a third of what a real one would cost.

Seven or Six I am still getting one if and when they come out. Lets just hope they are available to the UK. I seriously cannot wait. I like the OLP guitars and think they are great for the $$$.

My guess is that it'd be roughly the same specs as the OLP Axis. Same generic pickups and switching (i wouldn't bet on having the split option in the middle), same generic vintage trem, but with the Petrucci body shape. It'd be great if they included the arm scoop, but again, i wouldn't be surprised if they go with a standard arm contour.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure they are coming out at NAMM. I'm definitely going to check around there.

I have been recommending OLPs to my students for the past couple of years. I've always hated to see beginners get stuck with a Squier Strat that falls to pieces and is impossible to tune. But I have one student with an OLP that stays in PERFECT tune. So much so, it's better than many other more expensive guitars. Plus, the guitar plays well and doesn't sound too bad, so I've been sold on them. Having another OLP option like the JP one is cool. JP even tried out the prototypes to make sure they are decent quality.

Yeah I really like them. For students or learners they are ideal. The price is brilliant for what you actually get. And they really are suprising guitars for the $$$. They sound good, play good.....All I gotta do now is wait for a JP model of it.

the exact same body shape and arm contour, 3-way switch and 24 frets are the must! I'm sure a luthier I know could build me (expensive though) a trem like on Parkers!

I just cant wait to see what it will be like compared to the actual model. Even with the different hardware and pickups and inlays. As long as they get the basic shape, feel and look out of it.

Apparantly though John Petrucci himself has gone through several concepts and models of the guitar before the final version. And he had alot of input and he wanted it "just right" apparantly. So it should be cool.

I just wanna get it, then mod it a bit!
