PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

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 maintains treble frequencies 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 Graphtech Tusq nut, and this guitar is 100% stage ready right out of the box.

The USA 1216 Classic model features all of the above but substitutes AXL Alnico pickups and is offered with factory bridge/tailpiece and no "volume kit."
