Sterling by Music Man AX40 Guitar in Trans Gold with Trem

If you're after a guitar that looks and sounds unique, is full of character, but doesn't compromise on tone or playability to get there, check out a Music Man. The Axis series brings together a stylish Basswood body with flame maple top with a modern, asymmetrical neck that allows an extra-fast setup on the high strings without fretting-out the lower strings. Perfect for playing in any style.

This model is fitted with a double locking tremolo, with only one small chamber in the body for the electronics to ensure maximum resonance and warmth.

Here's what Music Man say about the AX40

Axis of Tone! This version of the AX guitar uses a Sterling Double Locking Tremelo bridge and locking nut. The bridge is mounted on top of the body for a stable platform to rest your picking hand without tuning warbles. The easy to use tremolo has fine tuners, and an adjustable arm for loose or tight arm tension. The locking nut matches the fingerboard radius and offers excellent tuning stability. 2 humbuckers are mounted directly to the body without mounting rings for better depth of tone. The 3 way switch offers, bridge, bridge and neck combined and neck pickup positions. The center position is very versatile and offers a single coil vibe with more output and lo noise.
