    Hi there, can someone tell me why these guitars are listed so cheap ?

    1) Ernie Ball Axis #1

    2) Ernie Ball Axis #2

    3) Ernie Ball Axis #3

    I know that they are not the EVH Music Man model, but I still thought that the AXIS fetched a fair hefty price. Last one I played was a turquoise one that was listed at just over £1000 (that's GBP Sterling). I hated it, it played like shit, but that's not the point here.

    I mean, from the same seller is this Axis that is a lot more :

    Expensive AXIS

    Plus, this looks cheap to me for a proper EVH Ernie Ball guitar.

    I expected the AXIS' to be this price.

    Am I missing something here .... or just not up with the times. ???

    These are NOT Ernie Ball guitars, they are from a company called OLP, they are cheep knockoffs & have been getting mixed reviews all over the internet. If its an Axis you want, make SURE it's a REAL Ernie Ball

    Hey Dave,

    Those first three are OLP guitars that are made in Korea and licensed by Ernie Ball to use their body shape, peghead, etc... They're cheap because they're made cheap. Cheap woods, hardware, pickups, and the quilt top is a photo top. Meaning that the quilt pattern is like a picture of a quilt top glued on to the top of the body. For $199, I guess it would be ok for a kick around bedroom guitar or a beginner guitar, but its light years away from being a real Axis.

    Ah, thought I must be missing something here. They didn't look quite right when I saw them.

    Mind you, I haven't found an AXIS or EVH MusicMan that I have liked apart from the first MusicMan I played (which just happened to be the first one to come into the UK).

    So if I haven't found a proper one that I like, I'm not going to like a cheapo version am I ?

    I guess I'll have to keep looking until that cheap Wolfgang Special turns up for me to purchase and then stripe. Oops, did I say stripe ? Of course I meant leave untouched and play as is. [img]graemlins/sssh.gif[/img]

    Cheers for the help though guys....

    They are made in china. Dennis at Ernie Ball had one on his desk the same day I had neck finish questions. He said If you take the time set it up properly, it is a pretty nice guitar for the money. It does seem like a good guitar for a beginer. I would rather have one of these than a squire.
