Your children and spouses, friends and acquaintances, even the annoying people at work who claim to care about you so much but won’t even clean up after themselves when they use the microwave in the break room -- all of these people are expecting you to lavish them with expensive gifts! New smartphones, gaming systems, laptops and tablets, gift cards and those virtual reality masks that are sure to rot your brains... If you’re not supposed to sit within 3 feet of your TV, how is strapping one to your face okay...

Anyway, why not make it a Guitar instead?

This December ADK Guitar is marking down tons of merchandise for the Holiday Season. If you have a guitar player in your life, now is the time to buy! Seriously.

Big News Kids... This Just In...

Before we get to our December sale prices, we have some big news. We have been waiting a year -- an entire year! -- for the Music Man Ernie Ball Family Reserve guitars to start coming in, and now they are finally here!


Introducing the Ball Family Reserve limited-edition Axis RH

The Ball family is part of a dying breed of family business owners who build premium guitars and basses designed to push the boundaries of performance and playability. At ADK Guitar we have partnered withErnie Ball Music Man and Sterling to bring you many of the best guitars on the market today.

Since opening shop in California in 1984, Sterling Ball, with his sons Scott and Brian, have revolutionized the way premium guitars are built, combining the precision of robotics with old-world hand-craftsmanship to develop industry-leading guitars and basses that are legendary for their performance and loved by many of today’s leading guitarists like John Petrucci, James Valentine, Steve Lukather, Albert Lee, and Steve Morse.

The Axis guitar is a mainstay of the Music Man line, featuring a gorgeous quilt or flamed maple top over a lightweight, basswood body and custom DiMarzio humbucker pickups mounted directly to the body to provide the optimal resonance and tonal responsiveness. This combination of tonewood and pickup configuration provides an overdriven, hard rock edge to the sound, with a surprisingly subtle dynamic response at lower volumes.

The Family Reserve limited edition Axis RH comes with a special flame figured maple top in hand-stained custom Blue Steel finish, contrasting with a lighter blue finish on the back of the guitar. This gorgeous ax also features a figured maple satin finished neck with a one-piece maple fingerboard without inlays, providing a cleaner, more streamlined look. Hardware includes a Music Man Floyd Rose tremolo system with Schaller locking tuners and a hand fitted black binding on the neck. This run is limited to only 75 pieces worldwide!

Don’t waste your money on a new exercise bike that we all know will end up in the basement or the garage by March! Pick up the Ball Family Reserve Axis RH -- available in righty and lefty versions! Only 75 pieces are available, worldwide! If you want one of these limited edition beauties you will have to act fast! If you’re interested, give us a call!

In the coming months, newMusic Man Ernie Ball Family Reserve models will be coming in, so check back if you want to keep up on what we have available.
