    I've got a purple Axis with a beautiful quilt top and I just started to put it next to the window so it could get some morning sun to fade the quilt because it looks black with out the sun on it. I hope this is not a bad thing to do.

    Oddly enough, my headstock is halfway faded (3rd photo). I asked the dude I bought it from if the headstock was like that when he bought it or did it fade and he said it came like that.

    Anyway, yours look like a very cool, kick ass quilt-top, if possible, take a photo with it in the sun so we can see the quilt detail.

    Those photos are in the sun so it looks good. It looks very dark, almost black out of the sun. I was just wanting to lighten it a little. LOL

    Anyway, I think I got that black Axis from you! I bought it off of ebay in 2005 or possible 2004.

    Jesus..lol, that's one hell of a collection. only about 4 or 5 guitars i would like to owne in the lot, but that's still an impressive collection. Switch the Woflgangs with Les Pauls and the Jacksons with Strats...and that would be MY dream collection.

    TO be honnest, i never tried an axis, and never seen one in person, not popular guitars in Quebec realy.

    I sold my purple flame top Axis just a couple of months ago. It was a damn nice guitar, and I miss it. But I still liked the Wolfgang better, and when taxes came due something had to be sacrificed.

    I'm a self-employed musician, so unlike someone on a payroll system federal and state taxes are not automatically deducted from my "paycheck." When I file my annual tax return I always owe money. Big picture, it's not that much (usually around $3,000), because my deductions take a big bite out of my overall income. But to have to cough up that much money in one sitting is tough, and this year I had to sell a guitar to come up with about half of it. The Axis was worth a lot and not really getting any playing time, so it was the one. Ironically, it went to a guy in Canada.
