    What the ...

    This looks like a legit Axis to me, but why? I actually kind of like the recessed switch, but the circles ... to each his own, I guess.

    These are reverse weight relieve holes.. maybe they glued the maple top to the bottom of the body.

    Doesn't look like it, looks like they used a hole saw, you can see the pilot hole in the center of each hole.

    Sad, but it's cheap, but it looks like it'll need a lot of love to bring it back to something nice.

    Not even sure how you'd fix it, short of a completely new top.

    You could also store spare strings and maybe picks in these holes.

    Yup or you could have it filled and paint it, it would look weird with the painted headstock. The sad thing is that someone thought that was a good idea. Someone made it their own and decided that it wasn't for them.

    V_S, hahahahaha, I know man.

    I've got a new hole saw that I want to play with, now what can I cut with it. Oh, I know, how about my very nice, very expensive guitar.

    I'd give $500 for it if I had the skills to restore it and wasn't going to resale it. Otherwise, no way.

    Poor Axis
    The Serial is G08953, would be interesting to know the Date of Birth.
    If I had the time and cash I'd take it, fill the holes and put a new top on there. Maybe a Buckeye Burl or just paint it in a cool color.
    What's Toneking supposed to be BTW?

    Sad, I would love to buy this, fill the holes and the neck pickup, plus that horrible teen rout, and paint it white. Make it like an axis "junior". I'm gonna keep my eye on it. Sucks that too is gorgeous.
