The Music Man Axis Electric Guitar comes as a limited edition model in a striking Neptune Blue finish. Built using a selection of high quality tonewoods and kitted out with superb onboard electronics, the Axis offers a dynamic range of tones that can cover various musical genres. With only a small number of these guitars available, we recommend you act fast to avoid disappointment!
The Axis is constructed fine quality wood, using African mahogany in the body joined by a figured maple top. This is an ideal tonewood pairing which contributes to a comprehensively full-bodied sound. The Axis also comes in a limited edition high gloss polyester Neptune Blue finish with cream binding. The body profile facilitates access to the higher registers on the neck thanks to the cutaway, while its curved shape feels comfortable against the player's body.
A 25 1/2 inch scale length asymmetrical neck is firmly fitted to the Axis guitar via a 5-bolt neck joint. A select roasted maple is used in the neck and fingerboard, and the luthiers at Music Man hand-rub a mixture of gunstock oil and wax into the wood for a much more comfortable playing feel. The neck offers 22 high profile medium width stainless steel frets with dot inlays to guide each transition from one note to the next. Due to the neck being asymmetrical, this has a slightly thinner feel for optimised playability.
Music Man have employed a pair of DiMarzio humbucker pickups in the neck and bridge positions to amplify the Axis. The DiMarzio pickups are custom wound, offering a high output humbucking sound. Shaping your tone could not be much easier with just the one Volume pot and a 3-way pickup toggle switch. Whatever your preferred genre, the Music Man Axis can provide a more than satisfying tone for everyone.
A great feature of the Axis is the double locking tremolo bridge. This will retain precise string tuning regardless of how hard you use the whammy bar. Diving and wailing tones are easy to achieve, and with it locking up at the neck, you will never have to worry about going out of tune. Tuning accuracy is further enhanced by the Schaller M6LA tuners with pearl buttons.
The Music Man Axis brings together a wonderful blend of materials and electronics, all encased in a compelling limited edition Neptune Blue finish.
