    Product Description

    The Axis is a modern classic, adored for its tasteful singlecut body shape, comfortable neck and powerful dual humbuckers. The Sterling Sub version gives you the fundamentals of this popular Music Man guitar design, but at a far more attainable price.

    As a pure rock axe, the Axis is formed from a lightweight Basswood body with a bolt-on Maple neck. The Basswood serves as a fantastic tonal foundation for the thick-sounding humbuckers, ensuring a balanced tone with a particularly strong mid-range.

    The Maple neck provides a bright and vibrant top-end, with the bolt-on design giving some extra bite and snap to notes, making sure that you feel an immediate response. Adorned with a Jatoba fingerboard, this gorgeous material offers a super-sleek feel under the fingers, working well in conjunction with the modern neck profile to deliver amazing playability.

    Electronics & Hardware

    The high-output SBMM humbuckers project a powerful tone, and are truly in their element with overdrive or high-gain distortion. With a clear and focused sound, cutting through in a mix shouldn't be an issue with these potent pickups.

    Master volume and tone controls allow you to tame the output and highs respectively, with the 3-way pickup selector switch letting you enjoy the unbridled bark of the bridge humbucker, the smooth and creamy sound of the neck coils, or the best of both worlds for full-sounding cleans.

    The Music Man-style tremolo offers a smooth action thanks to its low-friction two-point design, letting you add gentle warbles to chords for some surf-rock sounds, or even pull off some EVH-esque divebombs!

    Mr Scott Hardie30th Apr 2020

    Exceptional value for money. Such a range of sounds, very versatile and a joy to play. Seemed set up exactly as I like it straight out of the box. I find the tremolo arm quite stiff but that seems to help its tuning stability. I'd recommend one of these guitars if you are a beginner or an advanced player. It feels like a much more expensive guitar than it is. They look great too. The only trouble is choosing a colour, which genuinely came down to a flip of a coin.

    Been wanting one for a while saw the vid on you tube, the price on the site thought why not. Not disappointed at all, In fact for the price its one hell of a little guitar. The neck is a bit thicker to what i prefer but that's just me nit picking. Play it for 10 mins and i adjust to it. And for what i want it for its doing the job perfectly. Again BIG thanks for the setup out of the box.
