NGD – Diablo Blue Axis – dare I call it a BFR? Someone had to.
Hello, my friends.
It’s good to be back in the world of guitars. I lost the ability to play on March 3rd, but I’ve since had bone spurs ground off of my spine and cadaver bones forced into my neck, held in place with a titanium cage. I’m getting back the ability to play now, and I’ve rejoined my band. I’ve been with them for three years. I gave my solos to the other, non music man playing, guy 😮 since they fatigue my hand too much. I can play rhythm for four hours, so I’m back on stage with my ebmms.
I’m playing again just in time to receive this amazing Axis Super Sport from Pete DuBaldo. I’ll immediately gig with it. It’s so light and, in true Music Man fashion, perfectly balanced. I’m pretty sure he has only one left in stock at DuBaldo Music in Connecticut. This run is only available at his family’s store.
I dare to call it a BFR because of the amazing combination of woods we have here. But, before we talk about wood, let’s take a look at the back of the Axis: Pearl Blue instead of the expected black. The first couple of times that I put it on to play, I forgot the back was blue and I’m pretty sure I giggled a little out loud. Okay, I know I did, but the finish is that cool. My three legged Chug thinks so, too.
