    I was never a huge fan of the Artisan series, but that one would have changed my mind. Very nice.

    That's the street price I saw quoted on them elsewhere. Can't remember where that was at the moment.

    I wouldn't go near the red one unless I could get it for half or less of what the seller wants, and even then I'd only touch it with gloves on until it was scrubbed. (Blech!) But I think the purple...

    I wipe with Wonder Wipes at every string change, same process as Stratty -- let it sit a minute and wipe off.

    Once in a blue moon (maybe every other year or so), I'll work the neck lightly with...

    I've seen Custom Made plates a few times, and I'm not sure what it means. EBMM doesn't have a custom shop, so any one-off custom order would have been either an artist guitar or for a special event....

    There are a couple of Axis Sports on Reverb now for $1K with the option to make an offer, so you could possibly get them closer to your range. Both need a good bit of TLC. (In fact, I'm not sure I'd...

    That's a tall order, but if you find a place, let the rest of us know about it. :D

    Your best bet in that price range is probably to look for a Sterling AX40D as Stratty suggested. They're pretty...

    Not impossible, but definitely not easy. There was a guy on the EBMM owners FB group who repaired and refinished an Axis that got busted up in a home break-in. It came out looking pretty good, but it...

    That's a saddle, and you definitely don't need a whole new guitar. :D

    Is the block grooved (the black square that actually holds the string to the saddle)? I break/lose those every now and then,...

    That purple nebula Majesty in Pete's videos is screaming for me to go in debt. :D

    Lots of goodness in what I'm seeing. Sadly, not lots of goodness in my bank account.

    Same. There are a couple of stores where I travel often for work that carry EBMM, but they're always under lock and key. I did make one of them unlock a Majesty for me a while back just because I'd...

    I tend to prefer the darker colors myself. It does hide a little bit of the quilt, but I'm just a darker person kind of guy. :D

    And $1399 for the Majesty. At those price points, I'm probably going to be looking for used EB for a little more. I mean, I bought a loaded JP6 for $1,200 a couple of years back.

    The neck profile...

    That purple Majesty looks pretty sweet. Wish it had Illuminators instead of the CL/LF combo. Looks like Sterling is upping its game from what I've seen. I'm guessing these are all going to check in...

    I suspect they'll be shrinking the price gap a bit, too. That's got to bump the JP150 up near the $1K mark, if not over.

    That blue moonstone Sabre definitely looks interesting. Might bear further...

    Nice. Enchanted Forest is the Majesty that tempted me this year. But two Axis models tempted me more. :D

    My 2007 blue is fairly dark (the pic in my profile used a lot of flash to bring out the top) and has no fading. If I recall correctly, I think the fading was related to the stain that was used on...

    I don't know specifically about the Cutlass models, but the neck profiles on the ones that I have compared directly are very different from the Sterlings to the EBMMs. I've never played a an EBMM...

    That is correct. I wanted SS frets on a JP6 that I bought that turned out to have quite a bit of undisclosed fret wear. It was a no-go.

    I'll go with the majority in saying that I love SS frets....

    Nice. Looked at one of those last night, along with an electric shimmer AL, a kinetic blue Majesty and a nice deal on a teal JP15. If I'd had any money at all, I would have spent a lot of it. :D

    I can see why it would cause concern, but it looks like wood grain to me. In the wide shot, I see some other similar streaks in the neck.

    Gorgeous. Congrats.

    I've been looking hard at the quilt one he still has, but too many bills and too much uncertainty on the work front at this point.

    Yeah, my JP6 neck is super-thin. I don't know the measurements, but it's the thinnest neck in my collection. A very light fine-grit sanding is normal on unfinished necks. I do it on all mine when I...

    It is kind of interesting that he puts up three pictures of a real Axis that someone else has for sale in the listing. Anyone who compares them can clearly see that his is not real.
