    Well, I must admit that I am a wicked sentimental guy, so all of the kind words you guys are saying really mean the world to me. And, Keith, I'm really sorry to hear about your car accident.

    Yes, two years without playing was terrible, but in the six weeks since I think I've regained about 75% of my former abilities. My finger tips were soft, but are now hardening. I won't say that I had to relearn to play, but rather that I feel a little clumsy, yet I am improving daily.

    It's funny that you guys mention the nicer top on this one. I really loved the flame top on my first one, but this quilt top does seem to be on fire, which is pretty awesome!

    Actually, just last week we all had a thread where we were, like, "Where the hell did that Tollie go. Screw him!"

    Just kidding!!! Good to have you back!

    Welcome back, bro! Great to see you around here again and glad to hear your recovery went well and that you are playing again.

    I did all your axes, but especially the pinkburst AL with the clear pickguard!!! More pics of that one please if you get a chance.

    I'd like to share a great experience I recently had with ebmm.

    I sent my son's Axis in for what I thought was a new neck. ebmm was able to fix the truss rod and set up the guitar, and they only charged me for 30 minutes of labor.

    Here is a picture of Eric's redwood Axis:

    EBMM - a guitar like no other.
    Even we mancave noodlers can appreciate the perfection that is an EBMM guitar.

    Thanks, Pete. It was really nice speaking with you on the phone yesterday, too.

    I picked up the Axis last night, and I am blown away. This five year old guitar does not have a single pick swirl or scratch on it. The back is pristine, too. I am really fortunate to get my hands on this bad boy. It is in mint condition.

    Thanks to our forum brother, brandall10, for finding the original NGD thread: Incoming PDN Axis

    Here is an original photo and, as I said, she still looks every bit as good:

    NGD - PDN Honeyburst Axis  (again)-mm_axis_pdn_-jpg

    Now, onto the tone. It came as no surprise to me that the tone was going to be killer. My former PDN Honeyburst sounded HUGE. Think of Neil Schon in his 80's Journey concert days. Well, this one does not disappoint. In fact, it's been so long since I played the old one that I was blown away by the somewhat unexpected three dimensional nature of the tone; you know, like when you play a chord and every note of the chord is singing out individually.

    I like it so much, and it feels like home already, as any Axis would in many of our hands. So, I've decided to use it as my main guitar tomorrow night, with my black sugar Axis as backup. Hopefully, my wife will take some pictures of the band on stage so I can share them with all of you.

    Rockin' my Ernie Ball t-shirt. My black sugar Axis is behind me but I used the PDN all night. It sounded really great.
