Thread: I think I made the wrong choice... now what to do....

    I think I made the wrong choice... now what to do....

    So I'm one more payment away from picking up my mint 2011 Axis from my local music shop. I should have it on 6/15. I'm super excited to get it but this past weekend I made a trip over to guitar center to try out a JP6 as I've never played one before and my local shop doesn't have any in stock.

    I instantly fell in love.... It was by far the greatest guitar I've ever played. Now I think I made the wrong choice by getting the Axis instead of the JP6 and I'm worried I'll be disappointed.

    Has this happened to anyone else?

    No worries... it's a common feeling with EBMM guitars. Enjoy your Axis, then add a JP, then you'll want to add a Luke, then an Al, then a.....

    Most of us here have done the same thing

    Man if I only had the cash I would be heading to GC to buy it right now!

    Now I have to decide if I want to try to trade the axis for a JP or not.... decisions, decisions...

    I've never played a JP, but I'm pretty sure you won't be disappointed with the AXIS. It's one of the best guitars ever made.

    Both are good. But if you prefer JP6 -- mostly due to the necks being different, you need to do a trade or something.

    I like my Axis (97), it's a true workhorse rock guitar with versatility.

    I'd say that something like that happened to most of us at one point or another. If I were you I'd look forward to finally getting the Axis (which is an awesome guitar) and then take your time to see how you like it. After a while, in case you feel like you'd prefer the JP, you could always sell the Axis or probably take it in for a part-ex...things like that happen all the time when you're searching for the one that you simply can't do without

    Not exactly THIS - but very similar...

    I get a guitar that I've been lusting after - and sometimes even before I have that one in hand, I'm lusting after yet another.

    Yup, this happens regularly to me!

    That's a tough one...I'd say to give the Axis a little time at home with you and then decide.

    Keep the Axis for sure!

    like others have said...save for the JP or get one when Sweetwater does the 36 months interest free option.

    Yea you guys are right.... I'll just hold on to the axis and save for the JP. Unless I just can't click with it then you will probably see it for sale on here

    It should not be hard to sell a slightly used Axis. Now, I would never sell mine! Found out two day's ago that Oz Noy's favorite guitar is his old Axis.
