One look at this limited edition BFR Axis in Steel Blue and your world will be spinning on its axis. This amazing design is limited to only 75 pieces, so you can be sure each one is painstakingly crafted to be damn good looking and sound great. With a strikingly cool aesthetic, premier Ball Family Reserve features, and blazing sound, this is an instrument that expert axe wielders, as well as collectors of limited edition guitars, won't want to miss.

Strikingly Cool Aesthetic
Limited to only 75 pieces worldwide, Ernie Ball Music Man brings you another awesome guitar from its special Ball Family Reserve line. Notice the beauty of the flame maple top, finished in a custom translucent Steel Blue finish. The back of the guitar is basswood and sports a solid blue coloration. Black covers give a nice contrast to the blue, in combination with the metallic neck plate. The neck itself is also a site to behold. The light, clean look of a maple neck and fingerboard is highlighted in a sweet black binding. The fingerboard looks especially fresh, with no inlays and 22 high-profile medium-width frets.

Premier Ball Family Reserve Features
Besides looking really well put together, this axe was made to be played. The centerpiece of this limited edition BFR Axis is the Music Man double locking tremolo bridge with fine tuners. The tried-and-tested bridge design lowers the pitch with one easy pull of the pop in trem arm, so you can wah and dive bomb as much as you like. The Schaller M6LA tuners with pearl buttons will keep the guitar in tune with ease.

Blazing Sound
Ernie Ball Music Man outfitted the Axis with some real hot pickups. These things were made to rock. The Axis features two Music Man custom designed DiMarzio humbucker pickups which can range from classic rock tones to heavier sounds. The pickups themselves are mounted to the body for increased sustain and the chrome covers give these DiMarzios a look as solid as their sound.
