    Nice work! Looks like you basically made an Axis Sport that's a top-loader, w/ a floating trem.

    Maybe I'm missing something, but does the FR offer some advantage beyond the double locking setup...

    I can think of one reason why you wouldn't want to do that: it would be a royal pain every time you picked up the guitar to bring it to tune. You'd have to unlock and relock the nut each time with a...

    Maybe you can find someone on Reverb or eBay selling a neck, or a Silo with a trashed body that can donate the neck?

    The history of that Silo's ownership is very cool, indeed. I've admired Billy since Mr. Big (along w/ Paul Gilbert).

    I think any regular guitar strings may be difficult to string up at the 30"...

    Thanks for the review, and as is the saying around here - that top sucks!

    I found the trem to be a little stiffer than I anticipated, and three springs confirms it. My Axis only has two, and while...

    You can't go wrong w/ either. But I do love the Sabre's pickups; EBMM killed it with the voicing. The slightly wider neck also feels thinner (to me) compared to the Axis, which I'm liking more as I...

    It's symmetric (Axis is an asymmetric carve), and somewhat thinner, I'd say. The Axis is more similar to a Fender Strat neck, albeit with the asymmetry. From what I understand about Ibanez necks...

    NGD - BFR Sabre

    I was impressed with the Sabre when it first came out, and I heard the demos. Then, they dropped the Coral Blue BFR with the rosewood neck, and that did it for me. Just arrived today. I threw it on...

    Axis Floyd Rose Noise?

    Hi all - So something I've noticed on my 2018 Axis BFR: the Floyd Rose trem unit routinely makes a knock or clunk when it returns back to level, decked against the guitar top.
