but I need your help identifying this guitar. This was just sent over by my grandma after she found it in a shed. The hard part comes from not having a neck, and as a result, no serial numbers whatsoever. Any and all help is appreciated.




also, apologies for the cellphone pics

That looks like the Musicman Axis-shape, to me... I have no about their history whatsoever though, so I don't know if they've ever made on in this configuration, let alone if MM's generally have serial numbers in their neck pockets. It couldn't hurt to give them a call, though.

yeah, music man although it also looks like a indie?

purdy though.


ROCKNEDIT:
yeah, looks like some kind of an indie standard shape. 3 hloes (2 knobs 1 selector) http://www.gosbellguitars.com/id83.html

Well, technically it could be done, but only in the same way that you could change a cat into a hamburger. It's an unpleasant process, and nobody is happy with the result.

The part where the neck meets the body is larger than the indie in the pic. And it also has a different horn shape to me. It has an extra curve if you check the upper one. Right where it starts.

Sorry for my english.

i still think it is an indie, it doesn't look too different? also I have seen standard indies but with varied body shapes.

I'm fairly sure it's not an indie. This was actually my Dad's; he bought it in '02, and was lead to believe it was a Peavey.

Wow she found this in a shed? Why don't those things happen to me? What are you planning to do with it?


I was planning to put a Warmoth neck on it, but was told it wouldn't fit the neck socket, which is a bummer. So I'm now thinking of a decent neck (any recommendations would help here, btw). Also thinking of some Seymour Duncan pups and an OFR.

Oh so you are planning on making it a functioning instrument!

It would make some pretty wall art for me.

Thanks; now that I think about it, it probably is an older model Axis. Can anyone help with somewhere to get a half-decent neck that'll fit the bracket that delivers to Aus?

Music Man neck joints have 5 screws, not 4. It doesn't have the pickup selector on the upper horn so that Peaveys have. The shape also doesn't match. So it's not an Axis and it's not a Wolfgang.

Christ, is there a chance this is a fake?

could also be an OLP which was a budget version of MusicMan, sort of like what Squier is to Fender.

edit: ^yeah it could also be a 'vintage' but they usually alter the body shapes a little to avoid copyright infringement. It's hard to tell when it's just the scrap of wood that makes the body of the guitar, whether the shape is 100% accurate to the MM spec.
I like analogue Solid State amps that make no effort to be "tube-like", and I'm proud of it...

...A little too proud, to be honest.
