    Probably until they run into firmware space and processing power limitations. Most likely is that for quite a while you will only see Axe-Fx 3 updates, depends if there are dedicated firmware programmers for handling the Axe-Fx 2/AX8 updating.

    If you have a 2 or are planning to buy one then just get it and enjoy it. It sounds fantastic at the moment. It really doesn't matter if the next gen product sounds even better in a year, the 2 will keep sounding just as great as it does today.

    “There are no returns on close-out merchandise.”

    Speaking as someone who purchased a unit during the previous sale - fully intending to return it if it failed to impress me - I don’t feel slighted by the clearance price. Nobody without that kind of disposable income should be buying these toys, anyway.

    If that number is as low as Cliff’s profit margins can allow without room for return-shipping costs, then I have a hunch it will be fewer than four years before I snag a used III for that price.

    What's the availability like now? I remember even some months ago them going in and out of stock almost daily. I can see asking for more if there is an availability issue.

    I'll probably sell my axe II at some point, as I did my axe standard, but I certainly won't try do do it at the same time as everybody else, that's the worst time ever to do so. Proces will go up again when all that's available new is 3K5.
