    My battle axe is a Solar E1.6 FBB. I got it last october, and I count it as my first real guitar. Before that I played an Ibanez Gio GRG121DX, but I sold it. My Solar is everything I need in a guitar at the moment. It is pretty heavy (probably heavier than any Les Paul), but well balanced, neck is thin and flat, but not too thin or too flat, the stainless steel jumbo frets are easy to play and won't show any serious wear in a long time, the locking tuners + evertune system is just a nice quality of life improvement on tuning stability, as long as you don't switch tunings all the time (I keep it on Eb standard, with some excursions to E standard, so evertune stays set up in Eb).
    The Seymore Duncan Solar pickups are nice and warm, and I'm getting a lot of tones out of them that I like. Recently I'm going mostly for Slash-like tones. If I'm ever getting a Les Paul, I might switch the Solar pickups for fishman fluence modern active pickups, and go full death metal with it, and use the LP for Hard Rock tones instead.
    But yeah, thats my babe.
    It looks really cool :D

    I just have one for now, a Squier Bullet Mustang (bought June 2020). It's kind of super basic and cheap, but honestly so far it has been able to everything I want it to and I'm just a sucker for offset guitars so it was kind of an easy pick really :D
    But also I won't lie and say I don't already have my eye on a dozen other guitars I want but don't have the money or space for 😂

    Selling things provides money AND space! Helpful hint!

    Nice, Ids! Great top on that! And an interesting neck - tell me more?
    It's a chapman ML-1 Hybrid cali.

    The body is mahogany with a quilted maple top and the neck is roasted maple.


    The pickups are Chapman Sonorous Zero in the bridge and Chapman Venus Witch Zerø Single-Coils in the neck and middle position.

    It has Graphtech TUSQ nut and a two point tremolo.

    Quite a good bang for the buck I would say
