    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...

    I have an SBMM Axis and an EBMM Axis. Both have the asymmetric carve profile, but the SBMM Axis is flatter - 12" radius per their website, vs. 10" radius on the EBMM, per their website. The SBMM Axis...

    Hey, that's my combo - Sabre and Axis! And, congrats, that's a beautiful score.

    I don't envy having to make that choice, but if I _had_ to choose, I'd probably have to go with the Sabre, only...

    My $0.02 worth, and having done more handyman work and carpentry than I care to consider: Wood is an organic material. It's entirely possible the frets were just fine when they left the factory, but...

    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...

    Ah, sounds like it's just normal with that particular design. I can live with it. Good to hear that it doesn't seem to be marring the top finish. It's my only guitar with a Floyd Rose, and none of my...

    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.

    I'm running two...

    I'm not a floyd fan, but I don't mind it on my Axis (especially considering the deal I got). Mostly my complaints are the pain it is to change strings, but I can't say my Bigsby is significantly...

    I think colder temps would be more of a problem if the guitar had a nitro finish. Those finishes will check if the temps are changed too quickly (then again, my understanding is that's part of the...
