Forgive me if this has been asked before. I ran across a mint AX-2E in natural finish with the ESP OHC and bought it after playing around with it.  I did as much research and know that it is an 08 model.  This is a gorgous guitar and a real player at that, very versatile.  I can only find that these were only produced in 08-09. Other than that information I cannot for the life of me find out anthing else about these, I can only assume since there were less than 3 for sale on the internet over the last several years, that there were not many sold and or the ones that were are not re-sold.  I am wondering were these just a bust and discontinued or were they very popular? according to the limited information on the web I am thinking they were not popular.  Can anyone please shed some light on these beauties?

Thanks for the reply. I am curious why they discontinued? Does anyone know how many were produced.
