    New to the Forums...

    Hey everyone. I'm a new jack around here, so I figured I'd introduce myself to you guys. I bought my first Ball this past March, a brand-spanking new Luke. Love that guitar! It wasn't the first MM I had ever played, though. I used to rock a friend's Axis back around '99-00. I am absolutely convinced that Ernie Ball crafts the finest guitars in the world. I was an Ibanez man, but now that I've stepped into the world of MM owners, I'll never look back. I'm currently stacking some cash so I can pick up an Axis Super Sport HH sometime early next year, but first I need a new rig. I'm looking at the Bogner Alchemist line of amps right now. I'll most likely go with the 40W head and a 2 X 12 cab. If any one has any advice on the amp front, I'm open to suggestions. See you all around!

    Welcome to the family! I concur that Luke's rock. They've sounded fabulous through everything I've played them through and they are easily dialed in.

    I'll get some pics up as soon as I can. Unfortunately, I'm deployed with the military in the Middle East right now and don't have any with me. When I get back home next month I'll post pics of it along with the newest member of my MM family - in the 2 days since I originally posted I've decided to forego my search for a new rig and pick up a new Axis SS! I'll be ordering it on the 1st of January. I've not been able to take my eyes off of a Cherry Burst hardtail since I first saw it. Only 2 weeks and change 'till she'll be mine!!

    Oh, and thank you all for the warm welcome!

    As a fellow service member I think we should cut gorehound a little slack. What say you mates?

    What branch are you with? And, if you don't mind me asking, what is a gorehound?

    Welcome to the forums. The Axis SS will be a great addition. Not sure if you have any use for it. But, do yourself a favor and get the piezo option for the ASS.

    P.S. Stay safe over there and keep your head down.

    Good lookin' out man! Anyway, I'm Air Force, been in for 4 years, and a gorehound is a horror movie buff.

    By the way, I figured out a way to get some of my Luke pics while I'm over here. I'll try to get 'em posted tomorrow.
