Music Man BFR Axis Super Sport Buckeye Burl

This limited edition BFR version of the Axis Super Sport has some elegant upgrades over the standard model. The showcase Buckeye Burl top on our example is mesmerising to look at! The perfectly glossed wood is left natural and has a marble like quality to the finish. Another upgrade over the standard Basswood is the use of two piece African Mahogany for the body. This guitar sustains for days and has a comfortable weight of 3.3kg or 7 lbs 5 oz. Now lets talk about the neck. The neck on this guitar is to die for! A piece of super flamed Roasted Maple has been finished in an ultra-light satin polyurethane. The feel of this neck is seriously moreish, you will not want to put it down! Another special mention has to go to the perfectly hand fitted black binding along the neck which matches the body. 22 flawlessly finished stainless steel frets adorn the neck making it a joy to play and bend on. This has to be one of the nicest necks we've ever felt and the tiger stripe flaming is a work of art.

DiMarzio humbuckers, custom black hardware and Schaller locking tuners

Plugged in, the Music Man BFR Axis Super Sport Buckeye Burl immediately impresses. There is great clarity and variation in each of the 5 pickup positions. This guitar can do it all, from hard rock to country style chicken pickin'. The plugged in tone from this instrument is worth every £ of the asking price, it is truly special. Music Man have used custom satin black covers for the pickups which match the all-black hardware and sets this apart from any standard model. Everything from the trem system to the Schaller locking tuners is top quality and all work in harmony together.

Number 19 of 85 was born 18th March 2018 and is now ready for a lifetime of enjoyment. This Ernie Ball Music Man BFR Axis Super Sport Buckeye Burl will instantly become the favourite of whoever is lucky enough to purchase it. If you can afford it, do not hesitate!
