Overview

With the SBMM Double Locking Tremolo and lock nut, zebra DiMarzio AXIS Humbuckers and 3-position selector with single volume control, this AX40D is a pure rock guitar. The top is a beautiful book-matched, quilted maple that is enhanced by a luxurious translucent finish with a matching painted headstock.

DiMarzio
Furthering the relentless pursuit of tone, yet still maintaining an affordable price point, the AX40D is factory loaded with the very desirable Music Man proprietary DiMarzio AXIS pickups, which, until now have only been available in the Music Man AXIS guitars. The "Bang for the Buck" factor is through the roof with the AX40D.

Comments about Sterling by Music Man AX40D Electric Guitar:

Save your self and buy the real thing. This guitar was disappointing. I was not expecting music man quality, but for the price it could have been closer. The guitar looks good, mine is the red burst. It has the dimarzio music man axis pickups, they are great. The neck pickup is so clear and thick sounding. The bridge pickup sounds warm. I find myself preferring the original ax40 though.The neck on this one is chunky and uncomfortable. It doesn't sound much better than original
Ax40. It does stay in tune and harmonics are endless but its too expensive. The EVH Wolfgang standard is a much better deal. The body is better and the neck feels amazing. I played the axis and this doesn't even come close. I can see why they stopped making them. The only value is the pickups.

When I received mine, everything was loose. After a setup, it plays ok, just not great. I think my EVH Wolfgang standard was a better deal.
