    I messed with one of these last night at Guitar Center...It looks good, and the one I played was pretty nice...

    I take it this is an Ernie Ball product...

    Can anyone else provide some info on these guitars?

    Thanks!!

    Wiping your ass with John Wayne would make better circuitry than an OLP offers

    True, Eddie or Yngwie could wipe anyone's ass on here with a Squier....but an OLP is a true slap in the face to any phrase involving GUITAR....

    It's made in China, and been slammed in pretty well every serious review it's had.
    The common verdict is, avoid it like the plague.
    There's no connection whatsoever between it and the Ernie ball company.

    I played an OLP the other day and I thought they sucked! I think the Axis is a pretty good guitar, but the OLP is NOTHING like the Axis. Earlier today there was an OLP body on Ebay and the freakin' thing was going for $150. You can buy the whole thing for that! Someone is gonna be pissed to find out they bought a piece of junk.

    Chinese made? thats a notch above Korean. still shit, IMO. nice sparkly colors over who knows what kind of wood. at least with a Danelectro you know it's supposed to be fiberboard-style stuff. checked out the OLP's a couple weeks ago at Guitarget, i wasn't impressed either. i bet the windowsills i made the other day were built of a better piece of wood...

    holy shit, i remember talking to a guy at the store who said they smoked. kinda interesting...
    then i noticed the price difference from the axis and the OLP.
    but i'm sure that they do have something to do with ernie ball. the dude said that the pickups were the same.

    I finally found out what OLP stands for: Officially Licensed Product. That leads me to believe that EBMM is some how involved with this piece of crap. I thought it was just a Korean knock-off, but I guess I was wrong. After the things I've read about the Axis (compared to the EVH) and now the OLP, EBMM's stock is falling in my book.

    the guy told you the pickups were the same for one reason, he wants you to buy it. by the time you find out the pickups are shit, he'll be working at McDonalds.

    You got me intrigued about this OLP deal now. I guess I'll have to check them out.
    They are probalbly shit, especially if they are made of fiberboard crap.
    So I'm assuming they are covered with a print of a quilted top too, right?

    They're covered with a foto flame top, which is a computer generated "picture" of a nice top. It's less than paper thin, and a good scratch will go right through it. I believe the body is basswood, but basswood sells for about .75 a linear foot here, and probably less in china.
    OLP should stand for Oficially Licensed Peiceofcrap.
    EBMM should be ashamed for having anything to do with garbage like that.

    Those Radio Shack people really are annoying. Yuk!

    I have at home a reject body from a manufacturer. It's for a bass, and it has a leopard skin top, with a sunburst on the edges.
    It looks pretty cool, and is a photo of course. It's covered with heavy coats of clear, so I don't think that a regular scratch would actually hurt it...
    I may put that bass together someday if I come accross the missing parts.

    This is total bullshit, here I go again, i've only read rave reviews about it. Check it out at harmony central. there's only one totally shitty review from a guy who doesn't know what he's talking about. The thing looks good, plays good and also sound pretty good. And it rediculous cheap. So, yeah check it out. No I don't work for them, but I also don't work for Peavey, if you know what I mean
