    Most Underrated guitar solos of all time

    Hello All, Well, I've had the Axe II long enough to form my opinion on it and...well...I LOVE IT! It's been several months since I've had my Ultra but I can already say how much easier it is to dial in. Most everyone has said this so it feels a bit redundant but I was very pleasantly...
