HAYWARD, CA- The new AXL USA guitars got a lot of attention at Summer NAMM 2011. The SRO Classic was awarded NAMM's Best-in-Show honors, standing out in a field crowded with great products. It's our version of a true American original - an unbeatable combination of American assembly and awesome value in a guitar that's ready for the stage, right out of the box.
Hand-assembled at our workshop in Hayward, CA, the SRO Classic is simply the best value on the market for a handmade instrument. The solid alder body and maple neck with rosewood fretboard provide the perfect foundation for our luthiers to go to work. We hand press every fret with some of the highest quality fretwire available; then level and dress them for flawless playing in any register. Our great-sounding AXL Alnico single coils give players classic vintage-style sound in any position on the 5-way switch. CTS pots are connected by cloth-covered wire, and Orange Drop capacitors give a creamy, classic tone.
We finish the SRO Classic with a Graph Tech Tusq XL nut, Grover mini-Rotomatic tuners and a finish unlike any other available; all you need to do is plug in and play - the sound and feel are truly unheard of at this price.
The SRO Classic has a street price of $299.99, an unprecedented price for a US-assembled instrument.
