    Ive been out of the loop for awhile, is it true that axis's no longer have birdseye?

    Someone told me that new production models have rock maple necks? Please tell me it isnt so.

    Not to my knowledge. It is true however of the Silhouette, Cutlass, Stingray and the Reflex/Gamechanger.

    I've seen every model with a plain neck at some point. BFRs are no exception.

    Same here. Seen lots of models with plain looking necks, have had some too. I was under the impression, it's the luck of the draw. Some necks are really beautiful and others are just regular maple.

    There's always 'some guy' that knows everything. I should start getting my stock tips from him.

    Btw, you can always email the MM guys and ask directly.
