    Allan Holdsworth is the only guy I know who uses the SynthAxe. He's used it on practically every album since the mid 1980s to some degree to another. He's even released like 2 or 3 albums that use nothing but the SynthAxe. I've heard that he's always on the lookout to buy more of them since they're so rare nowadays.

    Apparently, those things go between 10K and 15K.

    This video makes me uncomfortable. Dude's deadpan delivery might have something to do with it.
