    Like others are saying, it's just a humbucker in the neck. Kind of Tele Custom-like. That's certainly different though, and not bad. It works for Keith.

    I still think your Axis is awesome, but I see that you're selling it. So I suppose I shouldn't mention it again. If I wanted another humbucker equipped guitar, but not the Axis, I'd go Stingray or Armada, personally (although the pups in either are a bit vintage and aren't as hot as the Dimarzios, afaik).

    I have the boost set on my Valentine to give me a good humbucker sound on the bridge position. Just hit the boost and roll down the tone knob a bit = great humbucker sound.

    I call dibs on that AL. That’s right up my alley.

    I will say if I had to choose just one MM to keep it’d be my Luke III HH.

    I'd just tell you to keep your Axis SS too (looks like a semi-hollow in your avatar?).

    I don't plan on getting rid on any of them. That ASS in my avatar is my latest.

    Nice guitar. Yeah, I didn't take you seriously or anything. Most people wouldn't limit themselves to one guitar (although I myself am silly enough to try from time to time).

    I have come to my senses and I am no longer selling my Axis, as you say they are great guitars.

    Nice. But I do wish you luck on finding another axe. I just thought it'd be a shame if that one went.

    I second this.
    I have an AS MM90 (replaced the bridge with a true humbucker), and for versatility sake, just ordered a Cutlass to cover the singlecoil tones (tracking info says NGD is Tuesday!).

    I briefly considered an Armada (something set neck and the body size could allow for ::gasp:: an after market bigsby) or a SSS Albert Lee (couldn't find any used).

    The roasted maple necks on the Luke 3s are to die for too though...

    You really can't go wrong.

    I do love the Luke 3s. Mine was stolen 3 years ago and as much as I loved it I would like to try something different now. The Valentine with its pup options I think will fit the bill and the natural finish with that neck looks killer. Thanks again all for you input.
