lol, hahah, i have a vintage metal axxe guitar aswell
theyre pure shite! plays like shit, sounds like shit (with stock pups) and the tremolo is amazingly poor, i wish it stayed in tune for once.

150?! my god, you expect to get that much from it, i bought mine brand new in box for 115 pounds. you should lower it or you aint gonna get a sale!

my ''metal axxe'' is my only guitar, and i've only been able to put up with it by sanding down the neck (alot), blocking the floyd rose and by changing the pickups. with emgs it sounds good, but too bad about the rest of it.

mine looks better tho, its like the esp viper, yours is a bc rich beast style shape, altho a bit different

oyea, another shit thing about the metal axxe series is the paint job, it chips like a bitch and scratches easily aswell, there were quite a few inperfections in the paint job aswell.

btw, what pickup is in the bridge, the white one?

Thanks alot fuck-face, I'm trying to sell a guitar, I don't need you telling everyone it's pure shite.

The trem on mine stays in tune fine.

I saw one go on ebay for £120 last week, no I dont expect 150 for it, but people will always haggle, so it's best to start high.
Where did you get one for 115? They retail at about £250.

I believe the pickup is an Ibanez I-2, it came from the bridge of my 1982 Ibanez rocket roll II.

Die shitting.

I see one lying in a pawn shop across the street for a few months now.

And poplar, isn't that a shitty body wood?

Ohwell, good luck selling though..

Cheap enough to buy it and keep it haning on the wall among your other guitars if you like the look

sorry dude, i just dont like people getting ripped off and buying shitty guitars without knowing. the worst thing to happen is recieving a guitar and finding out its shit. i've already been through it with my metal axxe and i dont want others to go through the same thing.

i got mine for 115 from a company on ebay, it wasnt second hand, it came with the tags, the coil tap logo, the warranty card and everything.

how does that ibanez i-2 sound? obviously it sounds better than the stock pickup, but what kinda tones does it produce.

btw, that guitar is pretty ugly, but i guess every1 can tell that themselves without me telling them.

yes. yes it is. which is why you need emgs, the tone they produce isnt effected by the type of wood as much as other pickups. it masks the shittyness!

It sounds OK with the old I-2, sounded better in the Ibanez it came from though. I find it gives really good response in the bass/low mids, not at all muddy.

I don't think the guitar is ugly, which is why I bought it, but I bought it mainly for looks, and the fact that it had a floyd.
The reason I'm selling it is because I'm too lazy for floyds, and barely use the whammy bar anyway. Also I dont like the neck, the radius is too large. I like a smaller radius - to me this neck almost feels concave (it definately isn't, but that would be funny)

My abusive post wasn't serious, I didn't actually think I would shift it on here - everyone knows too much around here. I'll see if some clown will buy in on ebay, or if I can sell it to one of my little brother's freinds.
