    No, but I don't think it sells like it used to.

    No, it's still on the EBMM website and is one of the historical models of the EBMM range so I doubt we will ever see it discontinued. The Silhouette and Silhouette Special are still available for this reason. The Axis surely still outsells them.

    The Axis is an incredible guitar, that any EBMM owner should have at least one of. I know these days it's borderline blasphemy to praise any non-JP model, but the Axis is *just that good*.

    It seems like all the classic EBMM guitars are not commonly stocked at most retailers. I rarely see new Silo's, Al's, Axis, etc in-stock. I would assume demand for these models is just not very high.

    When I wanted a new AL HH I just ordered one and waited for them to make it.

    Hello again...just revisiting this thread. Although it is still on the Ernie Ball website, the Axis seems to have been permanently removed as a standard "in stock" item on retailers sites. Is it now a "special order" only item now?

    There’s still EBMM dealers that stock many versions... just not the National Retailers like GC or Sam Ash.

    Got to go beyond the big boxes to the smaller dealers. Try DuBaldo or Willcutt -- a lot of the Premier Dealers will have them in stock, and it will probably be a better buying experience. The GCs of the world, for the most part, only stock what sells quickly.
