“It is hard to put into words how pleased I have been with my BMI Axius 2 and especially the customer service. This guitar has been amazing! It plays like a dream, sounds fantastic and the construction is outstanding. The best thing however is the customer service. I recently called for advice and Dan treated me like I was an old friend. He handled my issue immediately and professionally .I have never had a more pleasant customer experience. If I ever need another guitar it will be a BMI Thanks guys for everything”
