    If you're going to fake an Axis...

    The least you can do is spell San Luis Obispo correctly. This thing's awful. Reported to eBay.

    "I am guessing late 90's first generation Ernie Ball music man axis in purple quilt."

    For the love of Gaaahd, it says OLP on the darn neck plate!

    Thanks for reporting guys. The rest of you keep reporting!

    Does it count as a "rare HSS" when the rarity is down to the limited number of people that would brazenly whack a single coil in humbucker cavity? bellend

    Back in the 90s a colleague of mine had a son called "Bellend", though it was pronounced "beh'LEND". His family were Iraqi Kurds, I worked with his Dad. Lovely family, nice memories. I think of them every time someone types that.

    He really would not cope with that name over here, as Trapper says it is a somewhat common term and not that polite!

    I gave him the benefit of the doubt, he may not know and just may be ignorant.

    Sent him an email, told him he's got an OLP body with an Axis neck.

    I think he’s got a re-decaled OLP neck with that spelling mistake on the back

    Yep. That's not an Axis neck. This guitar is a modified OLP with decals. I thought the guy might have gotten taken and didn't know as well, but anyone familiar with guitars should be able to see that neck cavity wasn't meant to hold a single coil and the neck plate says OLP.
