Default new ProAxe



I've been gathering parts for this for several years. I started with the NOS neck from Erik, axebuilder, and finally found a NOS body on the bay, the trem is like new and the pickups are both new - the bridge is the distortion PA and the neck is a stacked single PA.

Here is an impulse buy late at night but I like it and it was a real good deal. Called the NightFall.


Floyd Rose Special, EMG's, ebony board with only a 12 fret marker and a hard shell case. I'll probably put Duncans in it at some time but I like it and it's built very well, says Epi custom shop on the headstock...

Thanks, I put sparkle in the paint and in the sun it really looks good.
Dude, those PA pickups are killer, the bridge is the distortion model. It is one hot mofo.

I just picked up an Epi Les Paul too. Odd but awesome coincidence Mine is a typical sunburst model. I think its a LP Custom, but not sure. I don't know much about them. Since I only own Vs I wanted something different and they had these things at GC used for really cheap. There were 3 of them actually, and I tried them all, but this one stood out as one that felt and sounded really good. One of the other ones was a white one with gold hardware that looked like the one Randy Rhoads used to play, and i really was after that one, but this one just felt better for whatever reason.

Killer Proaxe also dude! But then again you're the KING of killer Proaxes

Thanks, that is my favorite too. I bought a set of black pickups I was going to swap in but decided I liked the white ones better so they stayed.

Very cool, a lefty and a righty twins.

The ProAxe has always been my favorite shredder.

Me too, the reverse is much nicer because you aren't poking things with the pointy end. The reverse just gives you more room around things it seems to me and besides they look cool..

Reverse claw neck would look Rad....best looking neck in my opinion. I don't think they put out Proaxes with the claw neck feature though...still a cool guitar nonetheless
