    Hi guys. :)

    A good friend of mine Mirza Kovacevic runs this small shop,
    he made me a custom not so long ago so I'm kind of endorser.
    I used to play Musicman Axis and some other guitars a lot
    but after I got my custom Axis&Co went to well deserved retirement. :)

    I'm gonna post few picts of it,
    let me know of your opinion etc! :)

    Cheers
    Muris

    I was deployed to Sarajevo (US Army) in '01. I am very happy to see that the country is doing much better. Looks to be some great craftsmanship in the guitar! Beautiful neck!

    Some really powerful playing on you MySpace page. Very impressive. Welcome to the Gear Page. BTW, was that the MK on your clips or your Axis?

    Nice guitar. Looks a lot like a high quality version of an Ibanez S Series to me.

    Thanks guys! :)

    I forgot to write some specs,here it is:
    Body:Mahagony bottom,Maple top,natural binding
    Neck:Birdseye Maple,Rosewood fretboard,C shape,24 frets(last 4 scalloped)
    Lacquers :polyurethane on neck,Waterbase Polyurethane on body
    Scale:25 1/2 inches
    Hardware:Schaller Floyd Rose System(not floating,only drop one) and Tuners
    Electronic:Stan Hinesley's Rogue(bridge),Lagrange(middle),
    Customized Desperado(neck) and Varitone passive control pot,5 ways switch.

    Yeah,might remind of S series tho I find it looking more like Suhr or som,
    it's kind a "woody" guitar to say the least.
    :rolleyes:

    @grapeshot: Thanks man! Thing are much better now,
    still slow progress but hope it'll go faster in future.

    @Jim Soloway: All audio clips are from my debut record and 99% of it
    I recorded with Axis,yeah. :)
    Right now I'm finishing my second material so I'm using MK a full time.

    Also,Mirza is making me a 7 strings custom,2 humbuckers this time,
    can't wait for it. :)

    That axe is really nice! Very cool. The neck looks like it's 2 pieces. Like the headstock, too, nice change from the normal 6 in-line.
