    I just joined - Opinions on the LTD Axxion Dave Mustaine Guitar ?

    Hi Folks,

    thought I`d break my duck here with a discussion on a pretty rare guitar circa about 2005. I have a bunch of guitars and this one is probably the best one. It is the version with Duncan SH-4JB and SH-2 Jazz pickups ( there was a version with Active LiveWire pups also ).

    It`s made of Mahogany with a Rosewood finger board. It has a through neck and sounds gritty in a good way, plays & detunes real nice too. I like the weird one off body shape ( although some people hate it ) and find it comfortable also.

    You wouldn`t want to use the bridge setup for anything other than Metal, although the neck pup has a nice mellow sound to it.

    Anyone got any opinions on this guitar ? or does anyone actually own the hand built ESP LTD version ? ( costing 1000`s of pounds ! )

    I played one in a store a while back. Body shape was comfy, but unutterably hideous

    Played and sounded pretty good too, but I already have a guitar that does what that one does, and looks quite a bit better to me, so I passed on it.

    Too many guitar lessons lead to jazz-fusion

    I'd have to disagree with you about the JB. I've used that pickup for loads of other purposes, and it does great.

    Never played the Axxion, but I've played a few LTD's and they're generally good guitars. The JB is a decent pickup too and it's more versatile than just metal, I mean Jeff Beck's a rock guy and it's his signature pickup
