    Calling all rockers!!! Here she is. It was a one-off made for some guy in a band, but I bought it off another forumite. I love this thing and have said this in other threads. Although it uses the same pickups as the Axis line, the Reflex just sounds more open and warm. The chambered body just soars. Don't get me wrong, I absolutely DIE for the tight tones of the Axis hardtail, but this Reflex simply covers more ground. It's amazing.

    The color is called Classic White, but it looks very Buttercream almost. Usually, I'm not a fan of Rosewood necks or fingerboards, but I couldn't resist this 1-piece and it does add to the warmth of the overall tone. I just changed the pick guard screws to black and will change the pickup screws next time I change strings.

    I really wish it had gold (or even black) hardware, but it doesn't. I know EBMM sells tuners in other colors, but I don't believe they sell bridges.

    Have you had the guard off of it? Is it routed as you'd normally see for pick guard-mounted pickups?

    I have not yet taken the pick guard off. Soon. I'm guessing it IS routed.

    these are nearly exactly the words I´m thinking of, when I compare my reflex to my Morse (replace the word "Axis" in the quote with "Morse")

    I think there was some love for the reflex here lately, wasn´t it?

    Oh man. Time to change my pants. lol

    THAT THING IS A CLASSIC BEAUTY!!!

    Love the colour, the guard and the black binding.
    Not a fan of the rosewood, I'd be in guitar heaven with that with a maple or ebony neck.

    Thank for the pics!

    One thing I like about the Reflex, as compared to the Axis SS, is it is *so* comfortable -- maybe even more so than the Silhouette.

    That's certainly a great catch. Congratulations!

    I really miss that guitar, Radrock! It is a special piece to be sure. I have been through a couple Reflexes and that one was the best by a mile.

    You'd really love it now. There was a tiny twist in the neck on the high strings, so EBMM re-planed and re-fretted the neck. It plays like a dream now.
