- A rare left hand instrument from the strictly limited "Music Man PDN Honey Roasted" series. These are guitars and basses, some of them unique and one-of-a-kind, built to individual specs exclusively for the Music Man Premier Dealer network. Using selected Music Man guitar and bass models from the current production as a basis, all these guitars and basses share unique features such as a mahogany body in the special "Honey Burst" finish, Pao Ferro fingerboard, stainless steel frets and MOP inlays, and on top of that, as a special extra feature, an extremely beautiful figured neck made of "Roasted Maple" and a color-matching headstock. These instruments are priced very moderately, considering the numerous extra features, however, they will be instant collector's items!
- Ernie Ball Music Man Premier Dealer Network is a select, international group of high-end retailers, dedicated to the Music Man brand and stocking a wide range of Music Man instruments, with the exclusive opportunity to offer special, limited-edition models with special features that showcase the highest level of quality and workmanship inherent to all Ernie Ball/Music Man instruments.
- An instrument with excellent tone and unbelievably ergonomic handling.
- Crafted in San Louis Obispo, California by the famous Ernie Ball Music Man team, using a combination of latest guitar building technologies, high skills and meticulous craftsmanship.
- Finish: Honey Burst, High Gloss Polyester - a special PDN finish, warm and transparent, to highlight the fine wood structure. Contrary to the usual MusicMan Axis Super Sport instruments, the rear side of the body comes in the burst finish as well, which makes this PDN series the only Axis Super Sport configuration with the "burst" rear side. The instrument looks simply awesome! With chrome hardware.
- Body: Mahogany, with an amazing quilted maple top.
- Neck: Best birdseye maple, roasted - this new special treatment by Music Man allows the performance of the neck to benefit of a thermally modified microstructure: It increases dimensional stability, resistance to temperature and humidity changes and subsequent warping, reduces density while maintaining stiffness for a lighter neck with sufficient strength, yields a microstructure similar to naturally aged woods with lower moisture content, results in more resonance and less damping, eliminates the need for hazardous chemical treatments.
Vibrational testing indicates that roasted maple exhibits clearer tone with a stronger fundamental than untreated maple samples. Back of the neck unpainted, hand oiled and waxed for a smooth satin feel. Music Man guitars are particularly so famous among musicians, because of the outstanding quality of their necks.
- Scale: 25.5" - Standard.
- Fretboard: Pau Ferro - a very noble look and feel, while the tone is somewhat similar to the more commonly used rosewood. A medium-flat (12“) fretboard radius supports fast playing and easy string bending. With mother of pearl dot inlays.
- Frets: 22, high profile, medium width.
- Headstock: Matching the body color.
- Tuners: Schaller tuners with pearloid buttons - hardware of highest quality, in the compact 4+2 design typical for Music Man guitars.
- Bridge: Original Music Man non-tremolo, strings-through-body.
- Pickups: Custom DiMarzio Humbuckers (bridge and neck). Very rocking in their nature, dynamic and absolutely quiet. Note that these pickups are not available separately. They were developed by DiMarzio exclusively for these instruments and are only factory-installed in Music Man Axis and Axis Super Sport models.
- Electronics: 1x volume, 1x tone, 5-way switch.
- Absolutely outstanding quality of selected woods, craftsmanship, handling and sound!
- The guitar comes with a high-quality original Music Man USA formfit hardshell case and all factory accessoires.
