What do you guys think of the AX-7's???
Nitpicking aside, i think it'd be nice to have some more contemporary models in set-neck or neck-thru construction. I really don't like the pointiness of the RG body style, so will likely never own one.
A non-bolt-on S Classic would be awesome. I did realize that a gussied-up set-neck AX would really be very much like an Artist. I find the current Artist series offerikngs a bit too "classic" for my tastes. If Ibanez did quilted/flamed tops on these with scraped binding instead of plastic, and some more funky modern transparent stains and colours, these would probably be very strong "PRS killers".
I think the AX series is a nice alternative to the super-strat body style and has some great potential.
