    you are too old -haha

    Axe has been slang for guitar for at least 30 some odd years. Shredding at term since about the 80's meaning to play very well, ie., at an expert or virtuoso level.

    So the phrase basiclly means those who wish to be guitar experts or virtuosos.

    asypr is selling us out

    Notice that even though it's a PC/MAC release it only says PC on the box. It probably says for Mac on the side in legal disclaimer size print.
