The all-new BFR nitro-finished Axis Purple hearkens back to Ernie Ball Music Man’s initial production period celebrating one of Music Man’s earliest artist-inspired guitar designs. The BFR Axis features a beautiful nitro-finished hand-stained translucent purple figured maple top over a lightweight basswood body. Contrary to the original black back, a unique purple-shaded back and sides are beautifully accented with cream binding. The electronics package includes dual proprietary Dimarzio Zebra pickups, a 3-way toggle switch, and a single 500k volume knob. Each guitar has a numbered certificate of authenticity and a G&G hardshell salt and pepper case.
