    1) I honestly couldn't tell if I'd rather play a Cutlass over my AL's. I've never tried one. (Nor do I feel any desire to.) But truth is I prefer my AL's to all the guitars I've ever owned.
    - Parker Fly's
    - Tom Anderson's
    - Ibanez Jem's
    - Robin's
    - Various and countless high-end/signature strats, teles, les pauls, es-335, ...
    - All the ones I've long forgotten...

    2) 5 AL's...is just noob-level , some "quieter" guys own many more and more "precious" AL's!

    3) I don't see the AL SSS as a super strat. It is ...well... an AL. Kind of a mix between a strat and a tele with its unique personality. Just as the AL HH is, IMHO, a mix between a Les Paul and an SG. (Much more than that in fact)

    4) As stated in countless forums, I've lost the desire to experiment any further or to keep hunting for a "better" instrument. I have found MY model and will happily stick with it!
    I suck as a guitar player anyway!

    Honestly, I haven't tried it. Noone stocks Music Man here in Denmark (there's hardly any music stores left), so both my JP6 and JPXI has been bought used. My two JP's (my only guitars) are the best I've ever played, so I figured the JP15 would be a great addition - I love the looks and specs. My JPXI is easier to play than the JP6 because of the radius and SS frets, but the unfinished neck on the JP6 feels great.

    What style of music do you play? Assuming heavier stuff? I feel like the JP crowd has been underrepresented in this thread. Seems like the general consensus has been the AL as a second instrument, but I also like the looks of the JP.

    Technically not an HSS - Super Strat, but more of an S guitar on steroids - PRS - NF3. (3 Narrow Field humbuckers)

    Actually, I play a wide range of genres. I do like a bit of 'chugga chugga' sometimes, but it's mostly straight ahead rock. I even use the piezo on several songs live (hence my initial love of the model - I'm also a huge Dream Theater fan, of course). Even if the JPXI is probably one of the more 'metal' models in the range, I find it extremely versatile.

    Either one, I currently have an SSS modified, an MM-90 and an HH, all good but prefer the first two mentioned. Will be listing my HH soon

    This is exactly how I feel about the Axis. I tried them all...had several PRS (mostly Singlecuts), then went to a Duesenberg Starplayer, then a Gretsch White Penguin, then a vintage Gibson LP Junior.
    There was always something missing. I let the Junior go for a Luke 3 and cash and I fell in love with that neck. Ended up trading the Luke for my first Axis, an MM90. Added a Cutlass SSS, but was missing the ability to switch to a humbucker, so I traded it for a PRS CE-22 and used the coil splitting to get the "strat-esque" sound I wanted. Then loved my second Axis HH so much I sold the PRS and just bought an Axis HSS.

    Find what feels and sounds the best for what you need - whether that's one model or several. That's going to be different for everybody, as long as it has Ernie's name on the headstock.

    "Welcome to the addiction!" is now patented by Koogie2k......if used by anyone other than Koogie2k....you must mail him a US nickel for each time said/typed or signed.......

    I think something traditional like a Silhouette(which I have already got),and then if I thought I deserved it something as different sounding as possible? - like one of those futuristic looking 7 string Majesty guitars. Would'nt necessarily buy new though
