I see these going for around 6-$700 on reverb, I remember when they cost easily $2k. I have no experience with the Axe Fx but is it worth getting to play around with for what they're going for today? I would probably use it primarily as a studio tool. I am more of an analog guy, though I use Bias Fx 2 Elite with great results. I do use a lot of metal tones but lately I've been more into the kind of slightly boosted/compressed cleans ala chon, polyphia, AAL.
