I'm selling my Sterling Music Man AX3. Music man describes this guitar as the following.
The AX3 borrows the classic single cutaway body style of Music Man's Axis guitars. An original, classic design that is familiar to all fans of great guitars. The S.U.B. Series version uses a solid hardwood body topped with a bound quilt maple image top. The neck and body are mated with the same 5 bolt neck joint found on the Silo3. Sculpted and contoured for a super comfortable joint that allows easy access to the upper register.

The Asymmetrical neck carve on AX3 is sublime and has enough girth for grip and thin enough for easy playability. The 25.5" scale maple neck & fingerboard has 22 medium sized frets and is super easy to play. The neck is seamlessly integrated to the body.

2 high output "Zebra" coil humbucking pickups are direct mounted to the body. The special wiring of these pickups offer 5 distinct, versatile tones via the 5 way selector switch. Different combinations yield chicken pickin single coil tones to throaty, huge humbucking rock tones. Single volume and tone controls. It's all there in one guitar.

Vintage style tremolo bridge has a small area to rest your palm while picking. Individual saddles offer height and intonation adjustments for dialing in the perfect set up.

This style ax was Eddie Van Hallen's choice for many years, so do what Eddie did, and buy this guitar:) It is in near perfect condition, and currently wears new'ish Ernie Ball Slinky 9 gauge strings. I want to buy a Sterling Luke LK100, so I need to sell this guitar (and a couple others that I also have listed), as well as a Fender practice amp. I deal strictly person to person, and accept only United States cash. These sell new for $299, and this one is actually better than new, for a lot less money. Please either reply to this ad, or send me a text / call at 860 - nine, four, four - 5190 to get more info or to arrange a view. Thanks, Dave
