Player's Perspective

Music Store Live is proud to present this Music Man Ball Family Reserve Axis! This guitar was clearly designed to never get in the way and to simply let the player play. With just one volume knob and one 3-way pickup selector to worry about, the guitar gives you everything you need and nothing that you don't. This one, in particular, was put together by Music Man's finest luthiers in the Ball Family Reserve department. There are only 75 of these in the world so chances are you'll never run into someone else with the same guitar as you have.

Its smooth contours and seamless composition are immediately impressive the first time you pick it up. Continuing with the idea of staying out of the player's way, this guitar is incredibly comfortable and balances perfectly. There's no neck dive, no weird spots on the body that jab into your forearm, upper fret access is a breeze... it's just built to shred. The body sits more than comfortably and the neck profile and joint combine to forge a truly inspiring feel and playing experience. The control layout remains simple so that you may focus your attention on your playing and not on a barrage of tweaks and turns. This guitar was designed with a grip it and rip it approach and it does an excellent job of providing that.

The tone of this axe is full and clear while providing a perfect starting point for the player to color their sound depending on amp and pedal preference. The Axis is a terrific guitar for a variety of genres including rock and hard rock, fusion, funk, metal and jazz. Sounds great clean, or pushing the front end of an amp with some distortion!

Manufacturer's Description

Limited to just 75 pieces worldwide, this BFR Axis features an exclusive blue back and a flame top finished in a translucent Steel Blue color. The black binding on the body is matched by a black binding on the neck. The neck and fretboard are made of highly figured maple. Also setting this Axis apart from production models is the clean look of no fretboard inlays and chrome humbucker covers. Each guitar comes with a numbered certificate of authenticity and hardshell case. 

A one-piece maple fingerboard without inlays gives a cleaner, more streamlined look.

Flame figured maple top in hand-stained custom Blue Steel finish, with contrasting lighter blue finish on the back of the guitar.

Satin finished, figured maple neck with Schaller tuners and hand fitted black binding.
