Guitar Center (I know, I know) happened to have a BFR Axis come up on clearance, as a floor model. Seeing as MM has discontinued all Axis colors until later this year, and pretty much all existing stock (in the US at least) has been sold off, and more to the point, GC was offering the Axis at a killer price, I couldn't resist. It just arrived on Friday, and it's stunning:

Not my first Axis - I have a SBMM in white, plus another coming next week (couldn't resist the neptune blue)... but this BFR is a sight to behold, and feels amazing. Unfortunately, it seems to have a bad volume pot that cuts out the pickups at the top of its range, and it's missing the grub screw that adjusts the trem arm friction. But those are minor issues that are easy to resolve.

I get what all the hype is about now!

Great find! That's a fantastic top on that...

The only problem I've found with getting an EBMM is that it makes you want another. And another. And another. :)

Beauty! Great score!
Welcome to the addiction....

fwiw, a lot of my higher end gittars were scored as GC clearance buys years ago... nothing wrong with being a smart shopper!

No kidding about the addiction. Don't tell my wife, but I've been eyeing a Sabre in Deep Blue Burst. Also, can't wait to see what MM comes out with in terms of new Axis colors.

I may need to sell off some unused gear soon... :confused:

Congrats, Blue Steel was an awesome finish package. That is a great looking one. Loved mine but my inability to get along with a floyd brought it's demise.
