    I very rarely pick up an acoustic, but I have a koa Taylor that I love. I seem to be drawn to Taylors. I like the playability even though Martins arguably sound a little fuller.

    That said, I also...

    Yep. I use it at every string change on all of mine, maple or otherwise.

    If I really liked the guitar, I'd have a local luthier/tech take a look at it before I gave up on it.

    On a new guitar, I agree, things like that shouldn't happen (but everyone has a bad day)....

    What I've discovered is that, at my house at least, a guitar stored in a case gets played less than one hanging on the wall. With a climate-controlled room, I would definitely leave them out.

    My JP70 pickups are not bad at all. I planned to swap them for DiMarzios but ended up liking them enough to leave them. As dalto mentioned, it's going to be tough to get Petrucci tone out of a Cube....

    Interesting. I guess I need to open up one of my EBMMs and look around. :D Clearly I'm no help at all.

    Doesn't the ground wire usually connect to the bridge? And aren't the stock covers plastic? Maybe I'm confused about what you're asking.

    I admit that I've never had a need to open up one of my...

    I have a JP70 that very rarely sees the outside of its gig bag because I'm just not a 7-string guy. That could be the case for you. As Vadauco said, it requires rewiring your brain a little bit, and...

    Could be the frets. Seemingly little things can make a noticeable difference. For example, the bound neck on my BFR feels slightly larger to me than the unbound neck on my standard Axis. I've never...

    Yeah. No worries with people legitimately looking for help. It's those guys who ramp up immediately to rants, accusations and defamation before they've even reached out to customer service who get me.

    If the fretboard is dry, it will definitely make it appear darker once you hydrate it. As far as long-term darkening, I doubt it. At least I haven't seen that on my guitars.

    Because outrage. If you actually call customer service and they take care of your problem, you don't have a reason to rant and rave. Isn't that what social media is for? :D

    A popular product will have more complaints because more of them exist and it's in more people's hands. The more electronic components you add to a guitar, the more points of potential failure you...

    That crack at the nut = return. If they didn't disclose that, my assumption has to be that it happened because of the poor packing in shipping.

    Congrats. My first Axis spoiled me for any other guitar -- best necks in the world. I, too, have an LP that I'm reluctant to let go, but never leaves its case. :D

    The JP70 is a solid choice on a budget. I own one and have no issues with it. It is not comparable to an EBMM, though, and JP70 to Majesty is not an apples-to-apples comparison. They're very...

    Some of the recent BFR runs had mahogany bodies, and you can occasionally find them lightly used within your price range. Those BFRs also all have SS frets, I believe. But there is no 24-fret Axis,...

    No need for panic. Most likely a high fret. Minor issue and easily fixed. I had a couple on my semi-hollow when I got it -- $30 to my tech and a couple hours later, it was good to go.

    Generally speaking, if you want a really low action, you have to deal with a little buzz. I used to crank my strings down right on the frets and let it buzz away. As I've gotten older and don't play...

    My favorite super strat is my HM Strat. Checks all of the boxes for me. My favorite guitar (obvious from my tag line) is the EBMM Axis.

    I only really have one rule. If I like it, I play it. On one...
