NGD!! Axis Sport Case Queen
It is in MINT condition! No scratches and zero fret wear!
The orange guitar you see is one I bought in July 1997 and has been my #1 since then. I can’t believe I found this “new” blue one in mint condition for way less than I paid for the orange one in 1997! It was listed on Washington DC’s Craigslist. I found it because i routinely search Richmond’s Craigslist for gems as I travel there to see family. When I said to the owner that if he didn’t sell it in a month, I get it my next trip to Richmond in October, he said he would hold it for me since I had its orange sister.
I have never found a clean sound I love better than the neck+middle combo in this guitar. My second favorite clean is the neck+split bridge on this guitar which sounds like the middle position of a telecaster.
I’ll be putting clear pickguards on both really soon to show off the ash grain. I am not sure if the black tuner buttons, three-pickguard, or the black volume & tone knobs are original as my orange guitar has none of those. I’ll be changing the tuner buttons and knobs to match the orange one, or maybe pearloid buttons.
And the orange one is going to now become my platform for modding. I’ll be putting a Dimarzio Air Norton S in the neck position, with a coil tap on the volume knob, giving me 10 different pickup configurations. Also, I’m going to put on Wilkinson locking saddles on the bridge. I’ll make a post about that when I do that mod over Winter Break.
