    Since everyone else is doing collection shots, I might as well post mine too.

    The one that's all "wood"colored in the front row has been parted out and no longer exists...it was an experiement.

    In it's place is this one:

    A lot of people think it ugly... good, that was the intention, it was fun.
    Balls..... everywhere!

    Hi, Yeah she's a beauty. She's been gigged for a while so she has that "broken in" feel. Just about ready for a fret dress though. Here's the link to the ebay auction that the guy I bought it from had set up, he took some closeups.

    She didn't sell at auction so I made him a private offer and now she's mine.

    It's a Blueburst which apparently was a limited run colour for the Silo's.

    Yes I like Silos. Like I said before, Silos are a my guitar can do more than your guitar kind of guitar. 24 frets and then 3 of them have split coil EMG’s and that cool Steve Morse bridge toggle switch. Since I got the Petrucci back I have been playing it exclusively. Then last night I picked up one of the Silos and played one chord. It won’t be to much longer before the Pet finds it way back to the case. The Blue Dawn Silo has the piezo on it so there are 22 different pickup configurations listed at the thread
    Ernie Ball's most versitile Guitar
    and is my favorite guitar.
    The Silo Bass is a pure toy. It is just fun to play. I have tried to play other brands of baritone guitars and they all are just difficult to play.
    In taking this picture I found that photographing metal flake finishes with a Pac Blue Burst axis is tough. Also the color on the purple Silo Bass wants to wash out to look black. What I found was if I use a flash the Blue Dawn and the Burnt Apple look great but the contrast on the quilt top axis just doesn’t show up. To me the top on the Axis is the prettiest piece of wood I have ever seen on a guitar. Without the flash, the way this picture was taken, the Blue Dawn and the Burnt Apple just don’t sparkle. (FYI mine are the rare sparkly ones even though the pictures don’t show it.) What I ended up doing was bringing every light in the room and uncovering all five windows and no flash.
    I am really proud of this collection and I worked really hard to get each guitar. I am also really glad that Ernie Ball provides this forum so that I can share this with you guys. The only people in the world that can appreciate my geek habit.
    I really Love My Ernie Ball Guitars and Ernie Ball!

    Thanks for your compliments. The bullseye is a GMW, made by Lee Garver, who used to work for Charvel back in the early 80s. Lee makes some incredible guitars.

    *Finally* got around to taking some pics. The happy family (doesn't include the project guitars in the basement or acoustics ...):



    My "strat"- homemade body, Warmoth neck, Bill Lawrence pickups and Q-filter (gives a piezo-like sound), series/split/parallel switching:



    Washburn N4 with Bill Lawrence pickups:




    Jon's old Axis Super Sport. Note the all-black pickups and awesome birdseye neck. Looooove this baby!




    Tommy in Delaware's old 6-bolt Morse. Now has a series/split/parallel switch for both HBs and a Bill Lawrence Q-filter (for a piezo-like sound):



    Luke with an awesome birdseye neck!




    Also- Burnt Apple Silhouette Special (it's for sale):

    Axis SS Pacific Blue Burst

    Here's my new Axis Super Sport w/piezo, Pacific Blue Burst, with premium quilt top. I took a closeup with both flash and no flash to try and better capture the color.

    I've had the Luke for a few months. Just got the Silhouette , used (it's a 1991, I believe). What would you call that color? Not quite tobacco sunburst, not quite vintage sunburst...anyone know?

    Again, many thanx got out to Jon, (The neck is like glass), for pimping it out and getting the Axis Sport knobs to work and changing the pup covers from black to white.

    YOU THE MAN!!!!!!

    Here is a before picture, borrowed from SteveLINY:
