    What's the deal on this Axis?

    MUSIC MAN axis super sport Used Electric Guitar FREE Shipping | eBay

    MM90s, piezo, interesting color. I don't remember this color being available. Refinish? Maybe something only available in Japan? Or do I just have a bad memory?

    I remember that. I believe it is original, but a weird color for sure. Piezo is cool though.

    I remember that color. Can't remember the name. Late 90's guitar by the look of it.

    The purple shade was Lavender Pearl. Green Pearl, maybe?

    Yes it's an original color that was out when Lavender was out as well, like early to mid 2000's I believe.
