It's the best of the best. It can honestly replace your entire rig in one rack mount unit and give you more predictable results in live situations. It's a big step to abandon ones amps/pedals, but it's the trend of the future smile.gif Pros are heading that way ahead of the curve a bit just due to the ease of travel. Of course, there are millions of players that won't let go of their individual pedals unless someone rips them from their cold dead hands! You gotta respect that smile.gif

I'm very happy with my axefx. It's really great for patches which blend multiple amps and cabinets. The quality of the amp sims and effects is great and the control features are exceptional. I've tried a lot of amp sims and the axefx is the one I've settled on. It's not the ultimate rig though. For example the Avid Eleven has integration with proTools that is brilliant. When you record a track, the patch settings you used on that track are automatically saved in the song. The amp sims don't quite have the quality of the axefx though IMHO.

Ironically, after spending $2500 on my axefx, I still sometimes use my Johnson JStation, which can be found on eBay for about $50. The JStation was way ahead of its time and has a great dual rectifier emulation among others. It also has a feature the axefx doesn't have: an acoustic guitar emulator.

If you search the Axe FX Forum, under preset exchange, you will find many patches which simulate an acoustic guitar, to very good quality....

also check this clip of Marco Sfogli using the acoustic sim on the AXE FX 2 one of his songs... from James LaBrie's solo album

Check out my recording above of acoustic guitar and violin, done on electric guitar with the Axe Fx Ultra, in a band situation the acoustic guitar emulation is fine for me, I would just use my acoustic guitar in any other situation

I think both the line 6 and axe both sound pretty good, granted I like the sound of the axe more so. It just seems to have a less boomy sound to me. But I'd love to have an axe personally. Just the price tag kills it for me.

Hey Alex we'll see you in a few months then!!!

You'll spend a few weeks jamming on the factory presets then you'll start to delve deeper making your own. Sometime in March you'll realise you haven't eaten or been to the toilet since you got it!!!

Axe II is ordered. I'm having it shipped to a friend in the US. I'll see it July 6... at the start of my vacation but won't be able to play it until July 19th when I arrive back home. I'm not complaining, it's going to be a kick-ass vacation.

My 5150III 50W head sold in a record 3 hours on my local craigslist last night. (Yeah I'm going all digital with my QSCK10 powered speaker for sound.) My Boss GT-10 is my rehearsal/practice rig in the meantime.

No wait list. I ordered yesterday it shipped today. I got myself on the waiting list a while back so I had the wait list discount code. However they have stock and there is no wait.

Let me rephrase that. I didn't have to wait as when they announced the Axe 2 I got on the waiting list right away. My name on the list came up and I got a code to buy about 1.5 months back but didn't buy then and the code expired. Since I was on the waitlist previously, I emailed and they gave me a new code.

If you are not on the waitlist already, you do either 1) pay full price, don't wait or 2) get on the waiting list now, and probably have to wait a few weeks. (The price difference is $800 to get wait list price... versus full price... worth the few weeks to wait.)

I'm still very happy with the Ultra over 3.5 year with it now.
