I'm really developing a severe fondness for these guitars. I scored both of these at a great price.........just under $1,200 for the pair. If anybody hasn't tried one of these yet, do yourself a favor and give em a go.

The one on the left is a Silohuette.....maple board, loaded with three EMG SA's. Beautiful neck, although I gotta lower the action some. I'm not overly fond of the SA's output.....at least as a bridge pup. I'm thinking of either ordering another pickguard in an H-S-S configuration, and dropping an 81 in there, or just doing the 18volt mod. I had a Zion with that setup, and it sounded great.

On the right is an Axis Super Sport. This was somebody's main player....not mint, but not completely trashed either. Playability and sound are through the roof on this one.......seriously, one of those guitars that just feel like "home", for lack of a better word.

I was just in Guitar Center today, and saw both models there. $2,495 for the Axis, and $1,250 or so for the Silo. You should have seen the nasty looks I got from the two drones at the desk when I told them I got both models for under 12 bills.:eusa_danc

Yep, those EBMM Axis guitars are nice. I have not tried the Axis Sport model yet though. I had the standard Ernie Ball Axis with the Floyd Rose trem bridge with the birdsye mapleboard neck and silver Schaller tuners with the pearloid knobs. :drool2: Had an orange flametop finish. Wish I still had that axe but like the trans amber quilt top ones even better.

That one you had sounds nice Jeff. The three that I have are all hardtails, I'd like to get one with a Floyd.

I'm sure you can find one. :icon_wink
Try to find one in trans blue or purple.
You don't see very many of them around
and the colors are :drool2:.
