    Sounds right, my BFR has black binding, and appears to be finished with satin poly, not gun oil/wax. No complaints here, it's like the finish on my strat neck, or my Taylor. They all feel great. I'm not a huge fan of gloss necks, although I have several.

    ...and some other, lesser, non-MM guitars.

    That would be my old Axis Sport! Around 14 years ago I bought a Blue Dawn Axis Sport w/ tremolo from Glenn and it came with a maple/maple neck. I was lucky enough to find a neck with rosewood fretboard and black headstock, and swapped it on. I don't remember who later bought the guitar from me, maybe Sweat?

    If I'm not mistaken, that neck came from me

    I was lucky enough to find a bunch of Axis Super Sports necks for sale locally, years ago. (This might of been the one I had on a Luke II for a while.)

    Well... hold on, the neck in your photo is labeled Axis Super Sport, and mine is Axis Sport. I don't think its the same. Lemme see who I bought it from...

    OK, I bought it on 4/26/2015 on eBay from Brian Baggett... The serial number comes up on EBMM Serial DB as Axis Sport HH Tremolo, no color listed, mfg 2/21/2002.

    Interesting on the headstock, that name rang a bell and after looking it up in my records Brian purchased that guitar from me on May 7, 2012. I wonder if he swapped necks (again) or just refinished the headstock with a waterslide decal.

    If you ever pull the bridge pickup there might be an original build sticker inside the cavity. The build code on that guitar would have been ___-33-10-00 with #33 being Blue Dawn, and #10 being Maple neck & fretboard, natural headstock

    Great thread! Thanks for posting all of the insane Axis&rsquo; in your collection, Jeff! I guess with the passing of EVH my appreciation for the greatness of all of the Axis models has really increased. Cool mystery afoot for sure Glen!!!

    No wonder it's so hard to find a cool used Axis, Jeff has 'em all - literally.

    I'm still stuck on whether to look for the regular axis, the super sport, or the sport. All depends on the color I guess. Gotta have a trem though. Those pickups were voiced for a Trem.
