    2005-ish Axis Super Sport Rosewood Owners - Tell me about this guitar Please

    I just purchased a fairly beaten one on Reverb. Pros/Cons? I think, given my experience with 2 AL models with these pickups and a Rosewood neck, this will be a killer guitar I will not worry about playing out with...given it is already pretty beat up. Here is a pic:

    So first gig last night with this SS. I spent a couple hours cleaning the guitar up, it really is quite beat up, but functionally fit. I did change out the saddles for the Highwood Vintage Contoured. Even pulled the pickups to verify they were original.

    I have to say, therein lies the problem...the pickups sound a bit thin, especially the neck and I spend most of my time on the neck. Not at all like the the ALs I have/had with the same pups. Wiring does not appear to be modified.

    I just happen to have a couple Dimarzios inbound (Air Norton/AT-1) in B/W Zebra that might take a test run in this guitar.
