Axion Label –
The Axion Label series takes the established elements of modern electric guitar design and push them to new, lesser-explored territory. Similar to how the Bass Workshop series delivers the cutting-edge of bass, Axion Label dives into elements like multi-scale design, ultra-modern pickups from Fishman®, Bare Knuckle®, and DiMarzio®, as well as hardware innovations like the Evertune® bridge. These elements are just the tip of the iceberg for this ultra-modern series, and only the beginning of its ultimate potential.
