    NtmGD - ASSSh (Axis Super Sport Semi-hollow)

    I've been curious about the ASS semi-hollow and pulled the trigger on this one recently. It's in perfect shape and the top is just wild (that top sucks, right? ) This is the first ASS I've played with a rosewood fingerboard - aesthetically, I prefer maple (esp with a painted headstock) but this is a nice piece of rosewood so it's all good.

    I'm preparing for a huge move so I haven't had much time to really play it, but it did remind me of my biggest frustration with the ASS that I had conveniently forgot about - no height adjustment to the pickups. I usually lower the pickups quite a bit in all my guitars, I just prefer the tone. I'm also trying a set of Slinky 10's instead of the D'Addario 9's that I usually use. I was hoping for a deeper, woody tone but I need to fiddle with it some more.

    Enough jibber jabber, here's some pics:

    I love my ASS MM-90 semi-hollow, but there are times (such as when looking at that sucky top above!) when I miss the HH one I traded away. Sigh...

    Love that finish on the ASS semi. I have the same finish on my MM90 semi. Beautiful. Congratulations!

    And how about the weight. The semis are so light. Love it.
