    Default Did I get a good deal on this Axis?

    Can't believe I won this auction???

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...m=180348808301

    Looking forward to playing this.


    Anyone know if the Axis Floyd copy can be replaced with a Floyd Ping without moving the posts?

    Shouldn't that guitar already have a real Floyd on it? From the pictures it looks like it does. As far as I know, Ernie Ball uses real Floyds.

    Looks like you got a great deal.

    I believe EBMM uses the Gotoh Floyd, which is a fine trem in it's own right.
    I wouldn't change a thing.

    Are the specs on the Axis the same as the EBMM evh version?

    Same specs with the following exceptions (from memory) ...

    * The neck on the Axis is a little wider at the neck heel.
    * The Axis has a bellycut; no bellycut on the EVH
    * The location of the toggle switch.


    Otherwise ... it's basically the same guitar.

    I play a EVH and the Axis neck feels a little bigger to me.

    It looks like its got some player wear, but all around a good deal for an Axis. I scored my '98 purple flame top Axis for right around the same amount and was also quite amazed the auction ended so low.

    The Gotoh Floyd on the EBMM is excellent--a great FR, and not necessary to change (IMO).

    The Axis is 1/32" wider at the heel.
    According to EBMM, this was done to help address some complaints of the high E string falling off the fretboard on the higher frets.

    Though I own an EvH and have never had that problem.

    Thanks guys. Just checking my own excitement. I see these going for over nearly $1500 new - so half sounds pretty good to me. Worse comes to worse I don't think I'd have a problem selling it for the same amount. Not sure if the pictures do it any justice. We'll see.

    Like Andrew said ... it look to be a players guitar.
    Nothing a new paintjob won't fix.
    Hell, you may even be able to put it to a buffing wheel and get alot of those scratches out.

    Got the guitar on Friday. Way better than the pictures indicated. It was perfect other than the two chips on the headstock (mentioned in the listing). Guitar plays great, can't seem to put it down.

    At $750 it was definitely a steal.

    Rock on!
