    Golden Axe is the Golden Ticket

    I received my Golden Axe on Saturday, and have not been able to put it down. First off, I would like to say that I am beyond pleased with the service from Sweetwater. I purchased this online on a Wednesday evening and it was at my house on Saturday, double boxed, and almost still in tune.

    The finish on this guitar is amazing, and that is an understatement!! I own other Gibsons and high end Fenders, and the finish on this beats them and it isn't even a contest.

    I enjoy the pickups (I tune down to C# and play through an Orange TH30), they are punchy yet have clear definition on lows and highs. I like the simplicity of one tone and volume knob (my tone knob is usually dimed anyway).

    This is my first Explorer and I like how it balances when playing. It will take a little getting used to how my pick hand rests on the guitar, but it has not been a hindrance. The neck on the guitar is super fast as a 60's style neck should be. This neck plays much easier than my 50's style SG or Les Paul asymmetrical neck.

    I can't wait to put this guitar through its paces at my next show!
