Brand new from MusicMan USA, this is a superb Super Sport in blue burst with a flame maple top.
A stunning example of one of MusicMan's most popular models, this Super Sport features their famously comfortable gunstock finished asymmetric maple neck (this one has some lovely birdseye figuring on too) and rosewood fretboard. This Super Sport plays incredibly quickly with a low action and great balance.
As MusicMan say:
"The Axis Super Sport has all the great features of the Axis guitar with a few upgraded options for ultimate versatility. Beautiful flame maple veneer over basswood with custom DiMarzio electronics are controlled by a five-way lever switch offering split coil tonal combinations unavailable on the Axis. The Axis Super Sport asymmetric hard rock maple neck allows for comfortable hand and finger positions across all 22 frets, while the locking Schaller machine heads make string changing quick and easy keeping the guitar perfectly in tune."
This is finished in blue burst over a flame maple top, and looks fantastic. For simplicity it also has a hard-tail bridge as opposed to the more common vintage trem. For this reason it has fantastic sustain and holds tuning brilliantly.
