Win the AXL USA 1216 Artist

Hand-Assembled in Hayward, CA, With Pro Components and Gig-ready Right Out of the Box!

HAYWARD, CA -  August 2011 — AXL - Don't miss your chance to win the AXL USA 1216 Artist at! From now through August 31, we're giving away one of the critically acclaimed AXL USA guitars that are hand-assembled right here in our Hayward, CA workshop. Enter now to win the guitar praised for “excellent playability and versatile sonics” by Premier Guitar magazine (PG, June 2011).

The AXL USA 1216 Artist features Seymour Duncan Seth Lover pickups - one of the most authentic sounding PAF-style humbuckers made today - co-designed by Seymour Duncan and the inventor of the humbucker, Seth Lover. Under the hood, CTS pots are connected by cloth-covered wire, just like the famed original guitars that inspired this version. We use Orange Drop capacitors and feature a unique “volume kit” that keeps the treble frequencies at the same level the player desires even when the volume pot itself is rolled off.

TonePros’ tune-o-matic bridge and tailpiece are used to get the most tone and sustain possible, as well as the added convenience of the TonePros' locking mechanisms. We hand press every fret with some of the highest quality fretwire available; we level and dress them for flawless playing in any register. Add features like a solid mahogany body and set neck, Grover Rotomatic tuners, and a Graph Tech Tusq XL nut, and this guitar is 100% stage ready right out of the box.
