    Axis SS Neptune Blue Roasted Maple Neck Thoughts?

    Hi guys,

    I hope you are all well and keeping safe. I just wanted to ask you all something. I might have the opportunity to buy an Axis SS and have been looking at the regular Bulboa Blue Quilt top with maple neck neck and fretboard. I also recently saw a private sale for a limited dealer run Axis SS in the Neptune Blue finish with roasted maple neck.

    Did anyone ever own one of these? What do you think of them compared to the normal version? This one I've seen is brand new and never been played but is a 2015 model and the price they want is just above £2k. Worth it for a 2015 guitar? I'd obvouisly ask if they'd drop the price but what do you think is realistic?

    Cheers guys
    Paul

    Get the Neptune Blue. You won’t regret it, the roasted maple necks feel amazing. You can always get a “standard” axis super sport new or used down the road. These PDNs are getting harder to find

    Thanks for the reply, I think I'm decided on the Neptune blue anyway. I prefer the roasted maple necks. Fingers crossed I can buy it.

    Was it a rosewood board on those ones guys? The one I'm looking at seems to have one. Does that sound right?

    Either rosewood board or full mapple. Both were offered.

    PS
    The neptune blue was the most fantastic run ever!

    It's my best axe. By far!

    The PDN will also have stainless frets... smoother bends, lasts 10x as long without any maintenence. I have an Axis PDN BFR from this run AND a SS PDN with mm90 pups and standard trem from the same. Love the Neptune run! As good as the 2012 honeyburst run!

    We did agree a price in the end and we should be finalising it all this week. Had an email from the seller last week saying he was having 2nd thoughts and he wasn't sure if he wanted to part with it for obvious reasons.

    He offered me his other Axis 2019 model in Balboa Blue and it had some nice figuring on the neck but it was a hard tail and I wanted a Trem. I'm glad to say that the seller has decided to sell the Neptune blue one so we're all good again.

    I'll post some pics as soon as it's all sorted and the guitar turns up.

    Very nice! You will love the Neptune Blue.

    That was yet another great BFR run... I’m beginning to think that I love all the BFR runs because every time I see one, I say the same thing.

    Do you guys think it’s worth paying for insurance when the guitar gets shipped to me? I have to arrange it myself and I’ve been quoted £100 over here in the UK for next day delivery fully insured.

    is the guitar in the UK now Paul? Or is it shipping from overseas?
