    The Axis is funky!!! Like the inlays as well, they are different.

    Real curious about the tones from the Axis. I like that it is not smack-dab centered, but closer to the neck.

    Yeah that Axis is very jazzy looking, and the pickup seems to be about midway between where a middle and neck pickup would be on a 24 fret. Look forward to hearing a demo of it for sure!

    Yes, these are all pretty cool combos this month, and I've got some of everything on the way! The Axis and passive Ray will be arriving first, I'll try and cook up a demo.
    Have you got G.A.S. for another EBMM???

    I think I must be the only one that doesn't like that Axis. That pickup placement would drive me nuts.

    Not everyone likes everything that is put out. I think it is great and the only guitar to come out that is close to the old Axis hardtails from years ago.

    Plus only 30 total, have a feeling they wont last long

    Some interesting ideas in the December BFR collection.
    The passive Stingray bass with natural satin finish is appealing to players who want a passive bass with a no frills look.
    The Axis is like the St Vincent. First I look at it and think "What in the world would I play on that?". Then I give it some more thought and I realize it might sound great doing clean ambient guitar soundscapes, and it's a badass blues guitar. Sweetwater is listing the BFR Axis as a jazz guitar. It will be interesting to hear it.

    One thing i just noticed, how does the stingray have a push/push volume boost if it's all passive?

    Thinline-esque Axis = Tasty!

    Not sure on pickup location but I definitely like the rest of it. Would be interested to see this with other pickup configs in the future as well.
