Abel Axe guitars is the brandname used by Wyoming guitar maker Jeff Abel. Abel Axe guitars are notable for their aluminium bodies with holes or slots in them. The original production of Abel Axe guitars (with holes in the body) ran from 1994 and 1996. More instruments were produced in 2001, but this time with body slots instead of holes, and the company eventually ceased production. It is estimate that less than 250 1994-1996 Abel Axe guitars were made.
In 2007 Jeff Abel and Mike Delaney of Delaney Guitars collaborated on bringing the Abel Axe back for custom orders only. Jeff creates the aluminum bodies and Mike makes the custom necks and state-of-the-art electronics for the guitars.
