    How would we access the full Game Changer without the use of the USB or MIDI port we see on the Reflex?

    Just wondering.

    If I were to guess...these things were all part of going outside the box with the Majesty, and JP decided to stick with the basics on the pickup configuration.

    Just spitballing here....might be totally off the mark....just love talking about this stuff.

    I'd love to see the 25th/Reflex with quilt tops in different colors return in HH and SSH versions as well as one with the semi-hollow M cutouts. What a beast that would be!

    +1 The tops were so great on the 25th. Granted, I have no idea about the demand from retailers, but I thought the Reflex would be great with fancier tops.

    If I had to guess, it had more to do with size and weight of the majesty. The GC has a bigger body and weighs more than an Axis, so I'm guessing it would have been a problem keeping the majesty's size, shape, and weight the same with the GC configuration inside.

    Start with the JPX....remove the 5-way switch and replace with a black 3-way switch (like on every other JP). Then, don't chamber the body and offer that baby with as many sick quilt top finishes, sparkle finishes, etc. I'd buy one for every tuning I could!

    (Honestly....if just the 5-way was replaced with the 3-way I would buy another JPX right now). I absolutely adored the jumbo frets on that guitar, the ebony board, black hardware, and first time we saw the slimmer horns.

    For me when that 5-way was in the neck position it was constantly in the way of my picking hand when playing leads. The 3-way is never in my way and never had an issue with it.

    Can we get JP to agree to the pickup selector switch?!

    That teal semi-hollow ASS with roasted maple that was for sale on here a while back comes pretty close for me. Unfortunately, I was waaaay over my guitar budget for the year.

    I don't know that I have a "dream" EBMM, but I do have a list of ones that I hope to one day own. I've never been that big on the mix, match and design thing. I could probably come up with a few, but after a week-long business trip, I don't have the brain power right now. Maybe at some point this weekend.
    My stuff:
    2007 Axis Pacific Blue Burst (9/25/07)
    2016 Axis Super Sport Starry Night PDN (11/23/16)
    1989 Fender HM Strat HSS Blackstone
    2016 Gibson Les Paul Studio Deluxe Caribbean Night
    1996 Washburn N2 Padauk Stain
    SBMM JP70 Trans Purpleburst
    SBMM S.U.B. SB4 Black

    Simplicity

    My ideal EBMM would just be a plain Black Axis Super Sport Trem
    with matching Black headstock with a maple neck ,cream knobs and binding.
    I used to own a Black EVH Wolfgang obviously without the matching headstock
    but couldn't live with the Floyd Rose and no tone control but it looked really classy.
    So as you can tell I'm not really a fan of all the fancy flame and quilt tops.

    There is absolutely NO doubt that my favorite EBMM would be a purple EBMM Monarchy Magesty 7.

    Or one of the Axis VH models.

    With Peavey releasing the HP2 (Wolfgang) at Summer NAMM, it really makes me think about the potential of a carved top Axis.
    Hey, who would have thought EBMM would do a semi-hollow?!?

    BFR HHAL would be amazing, mahogany body with a maple top in pinkburst. I'm 50/50 on a rosewood neck or roasted maple.
    -the 3HB orange one that they showed as a prototype would do here as well)

    HSS Silo Spec in Buttercream with a tort pickguard and a roasted maple neck would be amazing. (The did a run for the German Market a few years ago)

    An open roasted maple neck run like the "return of the rosewood" run would be nice.

    I would like the chance to order a PDN Honeyroasted or PDN Neptune blue again. Either of those on a BFR L3 (HH) or Axis would be a nice addition to the addiction.

    I'll take Employee pricing on a JP15... easier on my wallet and prob easier than adding a ton of options to the production line... what do you think Casey? Doesn't hurt to try
