  • This guitar rocks!

    As reviewed by David Kline Jr. on 2/4/2013

    I bought this guitar after having owned the real ones and now since I am a father on a budget, this guitar was okay for me. I did however file the fret edges and replaced the pickups to Seymour Duncan Hot rodded set of humbuckers. SH-JB4 in the bridge and a Jazz Neck. it sounds incredible. plays well and stays in tune, I beat this thing up. as for the color it is far more a fuschia pink than a purple. So, consider this an amazing guitar for the price that you can upgrade little to none for a great guitar. there are new colors coming out too. so I plan on grabbing another.

  • Impressive import from Music Man - The AX40 rocks!

    As reviewed by Rafael Reyes on 1/7/2013

    Walked in to GC to buy a Line 6 Spider 15 with the gift card I got from my wife for Xmas. As usual, I drooled along the wall of guitars, and this purple AX40 instantly caught my eye. I pulled it off the wall, plugged it into the spider and jammed away. It felt great and gave out all the fun tones I would expect on the metal channel. I really liked it and I was on the fence when the salesman told me that I would get a deal if I bought the guitar and amp together. Sold! I asked for a brand new unit in the box. He brought one up and after a quick inspection, the deal was done. After playing it for a week, I can say that it is a solid guitar that is very close to the original EBMM Axis. I have owned an Axis and Axis Super Sport in the past. I have also owned an OLP Axis. This AX40 sits firmly between the two. It doesn't have the birseye maple neck or the Dimarzio pickups of the Axis, but is better made and finished than the OLP. I stretched the strings, tune up, and locked the nut. It's been in tune ever since, even with heavy string bending. I did have to use the fine tuners, but not much. I dive the bar hard, and it returns to pitch. I like that it only dives, this helps keep it in tune. The pickups are generic, but they rock pretty hard. I don't see a need to upgrade. Hardware is good, electronics are solid. I like the pearloid tuning pegs and matching headstock. The only thing I noticed is that the maple fretboard tends to get dirty quickly. It actually looks cool though, and I can see where the majority of my playing is! This guitar was set up well before it was shipped out. Intonation is on, no buzzing, nice low action, pickup height is good. There are no sharp ends on the frets, though I have read about complaints. The quilt veneer top looks pretty good, I can't tell much of a difference from the original Axis finishes. The back has the same body contours and neck pocket of the Axis, as well as the 5 bolt neck attachment. The OLP only had 4 bolts. Regarding the purple color, mine looks more on the pink side. But that's ok because I bought it in the hopes that my one and a half year old daughter will some day decide to learn Eruption! Plus it costs less than the other finishes! I am very satisfied with this product, and if I get out to gig again, I will plug directly into my Mesa Recto and go at it!

  • Very Nice, for the Price...

    As reviewed by Russell Davis on 4/6/2013

    I was looking to buy an EVH Wolfgang or a Peavey Version, but, i did not want to order one "blind" online. So I went multiple Guitar Centers and they NEVER, EVER have an EVH in stock, so my guitar tech suggested I give this guitar a whirl. Boy, and I glad he did, this is very nice guitar. I only have one major concern, the frets are not filed off properly and they wreak havoc on my hands, so I will need to get them filed. Also, this is not a true Floyd Rose, so, i can presume the steel is not high quality, and I will probably be looking to get a new FR soon. The pickups and electronics sound good and i have no plans to replace the pickups, i will save my money for a new FR- when I need one. I would buy this, if you are looking for a nice price point EVH... I did.
