High Quality, Affordable, and Versatile

Sterling by Music Man guitars are designed and built to offer players a budget-friendly alternative to their incredible core lineup.

In this particular case we have a Sterling SUB Axis - an affordable take on a truly iconic guitar, made famous during the 1990s by one of the best guitar players in history.

Don't let the price tag fool you though - this guitar can easily hold its own with the big boys, and will last you well into your playing career.

Asymmetrical Neck

One of the hallmarks of the Axis guitar is its asymmetrical neck shape. This neck is designed to be thicker on the bass side (towards the lower strings) than on the treble side.

Many guitar players who have played an Axis remark upon the neck, stating how it fits perfectly into their hand, and makes easy work of both chords and solos.

High Quality Electronics

In addition to a pair of hard-rocking humbuckers, this guitar features a fantastic 5-way switching system, giving you plenty of tones to play around with.

In addition to the traditional Bridge, Middle, and Neck humbucker sounds, this switch will activate single coils from each pickup in positions 2 and 4.

These two extra positions give you a couple of different, classic single coil pickup voicings, making the Sterling SUB Axis one of the more tonally versatile guitars available in this price range.
