Can anyone help me identify my Axe?
« on: September 22, 2017, 12:12:02 PM »
Hey guys,
Can anyone help me get more information on my instrument, the serial number is 9404192. I bought it brand new here in the UK in the early 90s and I was told it's a "one-of-a-kind" so it's not part of a series, all that is written on the head is "made in USA"...I can't even remember the type of wood used to make it, I assume the usual mahogany/rosewood combinations? Give me your email and I'll send pics as I can't seem to attach any to this thread  :(

And ideas/theories would be very useful thanks!

JK

The model number may be on tbe neck-block inside the body of the guitar. That would help us a lot if you find it there.

Pics became almost non-existent here when Photobucket got greedy and demanded a $400 payment to host photos. Most of us just let Photobucket delete our photos rather than pay Photobucket's exorbitant ransom demands.

Cheers!
