    What is this case?! (& NGD)

    Hey everyone!

    So, my new EBMM Axis Super Sport got delivered this morning and it's absolutely fabulous! I've been a huge fan of EBMMs for years and, after selling my old hardtail Axis a while back, I was hankering for a new one. This one was at a really low price (for UK prices at least) on eBay so I went for it.

    A few nicks here and there but it's exactly what I was hoping for.

    Anyhoo, that's not the point of this thread. The guitar also came with what must be the coolest case I've ever seen. It's a semi-hard snakeskin kind of affair and I wondered if anyone had any details on these? I'd definitely be interested in checking them out and potentially buying a couple more!

    The only marking on it is 'Talon' on the zips (the brand of zip...) and I can't find anything on Google... The guitar was shipped from Denmark if that's any help? I messaged the seller but he didn't seem to understand my question.

    I tried to attach a bigger pic but the file was too large

    Cheers

    Talon is a company that makes zippers - and are sold to thousands of companies, so that's no help...

    Is kind of a cool looking bag - well padded or possibly hand built by somebody?

    I know, it ain't half bad that guitar It has barely left my hands all day! The finish is more blue in the photo than in real life, it's got that nice hint of green to it.

    As for the case... Hand-built was my best guess too. It's got a padded black lining inside and some kind of backing to make it more sturdy but I can't find any labels in there...

    I'll have to give it another once-over tomorrow, I've asked around in a few places today and found zero information! I'll be sure to share anything I do find with you guys! Cheers

    Nice Super Sport! Congrats!

    If I am not mistaken, that is not the stock EBMM trem on it. Looks like an aftermarket trem?

    Wow, good spot! Yeah, the previous owner decided to get a luthier to change the trem to a six-screw vintage strat one (which was fine by me, I'm a big vintage strat fan so it's familiar territory and it meant I could get the guitar a bit cheaper!). Strangely, he didn't have the guitar set up with the trem floating, which you'd think was the point of changing to the new bridge. It came with the original bridge too so I might even swap it back, I'm not a bit trem user anyway and those four extra holes will be covered up...

    What's almost impossible to spot in the photo because of the way the colour has altered slightly, is that the knobs are new too. They're a kind of pale mint green colour and look cool with the blue finish. The original knobs were included too but are full of cracks, I'd imagine this guitar has seen a few gigs over the years!

    Lovely Axis SS. Great colour and I love a matching headstock.
    Not keen on that case though.

    Can't beat a EBMM vintage trem, so it's good you've got the original bridge, as well.

    Congrats.
