dude selling one, says he doesnt know what it is. After googling, I agree. Nothing really pops up.

Looks like a bc rich warlock USA. Its bolt on, bare wood appears to be a 5 peice sandwhich of maple, walnut, and mahogany. seymour duncan pickups, ebony fretboard 1 peice maple neck.

any info would be appreciated.

Re: What is a "Kimaxe"

Everything google has on "kimaxe" usually reveals they're korean, supposedly built at Sang Jin. Saw a lot of reviews on kimaxe basses and one random youtube video of a guy playing a kimaxe les paul copy. Also more than a few results with an LA address that is supposedly Kimaxe Guitars. I'd call the listed number for kicks. You probably know all this cause it's all google has hahaha. 90,000 results and only the first 4 pages are related guitar stuff.

Man "Kimaxe" just sounds like something i'd hear in a 90's guitar toy commercial. Rock out with your Kimaxe! Kimaxe Kimaxe Kimaxe

Yeah that's a delay effect vBulletin style.

Re: What is a "Kimaxe"

No prob. Though I was sure you found most of that I honestly was just wondering what could possibly be dug up on this elusive Kimaxe. I'm guessing production stopped pre-internet popularity days.

I noticed that in all the reviews and ads I looked at. Quite odd. They all seem to have name brand pickups and Floyds too! You come across that expired craigslist posting about a kimaxe warlock copy? Says the model name is "Storm".
