    Long live boring black. I recently got a single P90 Japanese Moon Reggaemaster in black with matching headstock and pickguard and it feels so right. My duo-mate is waiting for an Axis Sport to be delivered, and it is a limited finish for the Emergenza contest (sorry to say but it is ugly as hell) and we are thinking about blacking it.

    Its funny, I was playing my Sport today and thinking I'd love to have one with the new nut on it. Everything else is perfect. I'd love an MM90 one if we are going that route. Sold mine years ago because I didn't appreciate the pickups when I had mine.

    I sold my Axis SS about 10 years ago, because we had a car repair to pay for. Back then, they were going for $800 used, I figured I could just grab another one when I had the money. A few years passed and when I went back to look, all of a sudden they’re $2500 new and $1600-$1800 used.

    The Axis SS is hands down the best playing guitar I’ve ever owned. It was perfect for my hand size, the medium frets felt awesome, action was incredible and the feel of that wax/oiled neck was phenomenal. I’ve purchased a few guitars since then, and every one has ended up returned or sold because it’s just a disappointment compared to the Axis SS. I just can’t and don’t really want, to play anything else. I don’t even have a guitar right now.

    It seems my dreams of owning another of my dream guitar are going to stay just that, dreams, for a long time. EBMM made such a masterpiece of a guitar, to me, that it’s ruined every other guitar on the market for me.

    I regret selling my original Axis SS every day.

    Clone, there are deals to be had, if you have some $$, check Reverb and such, watch the For Sale and EvilBay threads, you might just luck out.

    Keep looking Clonexx. There are deals to be had if you check often and beat someone to the deal. There are even great deals to be had that just sit there.

    I paid $1000 about six months ago for a MINT Axis SS. Minty mint. It’s Lavender Pearl. I’ve lusted after that color for years.



    I know Glenn will love this picture because of all the sparkles.

    Hahaha, it’s my favorite model now that I don’t feel like dealing with a Floyd. They lack a little bit of that Axis bite due to the tone knob, but I use a tone knob often so it’s a worthy trade off.

    Tollie, absolutely man!!!!! How do you like the AL HH that way? I think it looks super clean without the pick guard. And Emerald reminds me of the holidays!!!

    Burnt Apple, is such a super subtle color, but for me, classy as well.
