The Sterling by Music Man SUB Axis Electric Guitar in White will be familiar to all fans of great guitars with its unique shape and storied heritage. Based upon it's more expensive Music Man cousin, this guitar has similar main features at a far more palatable price point.
The Axis features the iconic single cutaway body comprised of solid Basswood. Basswood sits well in the midrange of the tonal spectrum, which makes it great for players who want to cut through muddy live mixes. Its balanced nature makes it great for all sorts of playing and it is a relatively lightweight wood, lending itself well to energetic performances.
The Axis has a unique asymmetrical Hard Maple neck to help enhance lead playing. With the treble side thinner than the bass side you get all the heft of a typical neck when fretting chords alongside the slim shape preferred by shredders the world over, enhancing playability. Married to the neck is a Jatoba fretboard, a hard, high-density wood that makes for a stable playing performance, with similar properties to Rosewood, marked by White Dot Inlays.
Specially Voiced Humbuckers
The Axis houses two specially voiced, Sterling by Music Man designed humbuckers with 5-way Toggle Switch to give you a host of tonal options making this guitar just as good for searing leads as it is for rhythm playing. A simple set up comprising of a single tone knob for sonic sculpting and a single volume knob for dialling back the gain gives you further options for tweaking your tone whilst still keeping things simple.
The iconic Music Man '4+2' headstock is present and accounted for with Diecast Tuning Machines to give you steady tuning stability and easy adjustments. The Fulcrum Tremolo bridge lets you add texture and shimmer to your playing with flutters, dives and raises, whilst helping to maintain intonation and tuning integrity in conjunction with the Tuning Machines.
The Sterling by Music Man Axis SUB Electric Guitar in White is a fine addition to any discerning guitarists arsenal, at a fantastic price point. Combining the looks of both a Telecaster and Les Paul with a raft of high-quality appointments, this guitar is a player's dream.
