A Fresh Take on an Iconic Single Cut With a Familiar Look and Feel, but an Ultra Modern Sound
The Sterling by Music Man Axis AX3S pays tribute to its close cousin the USA Music Man Axis but at a very affordable price point. Featuring a lightweight Basswood body in a fresh single cutaway design, the Axis AX3S has an asymmetrical satin finish Hard Maple neck with a 22 fret Jatoba fingerboard that is easy to play and ultra comfortable.
The awesome and surprisingly versatile tone of the Axis comes from a pair of beautifully voiced Music Man spec humbucker pickups with a 5-way pickup selector switch that allows you to split humbucker coils and blend neck and bridge voicings in unique ways, making the new Sterling by Music Man Axis a sonic wonder.
Hardware includes an ultra smooth Music Man spec fulcrum tremolo system with diecast tuners for tuning stability. The white body binding really makes the black finish and hardware pop, giving the new Axis a killer look to match its awesome rock sound.
