    Axis with Pick Guards Yes or No?

    I've been looking at some of these and purchased a pick guard from Pete's shop (DuBaldo Music Center)

    It's just sitting on the guitar, but they do look pretty different with it.

    Yeah, it's definitely a different look. Some people love pickguards. Some hate them. I have guitars with and without.

    Is that an Axis Hardtail? When did they make those? Must have been before they started using the Super Sport name.

    Yes, it's a hard tail. These were early on, and the following was posted by one of the mods in 2008:

    We offered the Red, Purple, and Gold in a non trem version starting 1/96

    January 97 we offered another option in a non trem Sunburst! (Honey Burst now)

    April 97 price list shows all 4 colors and a new rosewood option on all Axis Models.

    For most of 97-98 this stayed the same until Jan 99 the non trem Axis was only available with a maple neck and Trans gold only! By 2000 the Supersport arrived and the Non trem Axis was history!

    Well like TBone said, they look different, I like them without myself. To cover up the Fuchsia would be a crime, hahahahahaha.

    I'm actually liking it on the hard tail, but more than likely it'll be put on the ASS. Doubt I'd actually screw it on too. Maybe some adhesive that's reversible.

    I think they look cool with a pickguard.... but only the solid coloured ones and natural headstock.
    That's just me.

    Personally, I like them. But they change the personality- they make them more telecaster-ish.

    It's cool, just different.

    I am a fan and have had many sports with guards. This Axis is from 99 and has a factory guard.

    Here is another one I did.

    Reflex one off with factory guard

    This is a one off super sport, one of my favorites.

    I much prefer covered hum buckers. Zebra coils don't do it for me -I like the clean aesthetic of a covered humbucker. That black quilt with guard and chrome covers looks great

    Are you using double-stick tape on the guards with no screws?
