Description

An original, classic design that is familiar to all fans of great guitars, the Sterling by Music Man Axis traces its roots to the Ernie Ball Music Man Axis, the venerable single cutaway guitar that took the scene by storm in the early 90’s. Four conductor pickups wired to a 5-way selector, asymmetrical neck, and vintage style tremolo.  

A dual Humbucker pickup configuration with 5 way switching, and Tone/Volume controls give the Axis tremendous versatility and value at an incredible price point.

Also featured is a fully adjustable fulcrum tremolo - the vintage style tremolo bridge has a comfortable area to rest your palm, and the solid saddles offer adjustments for height and intonation.
