AXN Model 1

AXN™ MODEL 1 GUITAR MADE IN CALIFORNIA USA

Our new AXN™ Model One is a modern Strat shaped guitar with a fixed bridge and it will rock your world.  This guitar has a hardtail bridge which strings through the back of the body. This provides sustain, the ability to change tunings quickly, and the familiar sound of a fixed bridge guitar.

The AXN™ Model One includes a hand made mahogany neck, our proprietary "LP" neck profile (  reminiscent of a vintage Les Paul ). It also features our exclusive jumbo M1 fret size ( equivalent to Dunlop 6000 ) as standard. We refined the body thickness and girth as well as the woods used in our Model one to achieve a marvelously smooth hard rock tone.

The misconception that one guitar should cover a multitude of sounds contrasts sharply with the fact that professionals use a specific guitar for each style of music they are performing. The AXN™ Model One will transcend the gap between Alternative & 80s Metal, 1970's Hard Rock and todays Metalcore. An AXN™ Model One is made to do one thing... Rock!

The Model One is more than just a Les Paul killer. Its ready to to replace your most tone-full neck-through and set neck guitar. It will become your number one go to axe.

Since its inception we’ve fine-tuned everything including the exotic woods used. We hand pick the timber with our own eyes from local California USA suppliers from which to make our Model One. We balanced resonance and sustain against each other while adjusting clarity, bite and response. This guitar is designed to drive tight, articulate and well rounded modern distortion and magnificent sound to your amp. Its perfectly suited to progressive players familiar with higher volumes and aggressive playing techniques.

2017 AXN™ Model One - THE DIFFERENCES

The AXN™ Standard Model One, the MetalCoreST™ and The AXN™ Model 1X are very similar. They all have our hand made mahogany neck with super jumbo frets and a resonant swamp ash guitar body. The AXN™ Standard Model One resembles more closely the body shape and features of a vintage stratocaster.

The AXN™ Model 1X will include our modernized strat body shape. A modern ABM German made Machined Hardtail Bridge or a Vintage Hardtail Bridge and a boutique or name brand pickup are just some of the features within our unique AXN™ Model 1X. 

Limited additions such as the AXN™ MetalCoreSTand our AXN™Junior™ will have virtually the same features as a Model 1. Yet these model will have specialized choices such as pickups and tuners. The AXN™Junior™ will launch in 2018 and will have a P-90 pickup and 50 style wiring for that 1970 rock-n-roll vibe! Keep a lookout!

 Our MetalCoreST™ will launch in Summer 2017

This special version of the M1 the guitar can deliver tunings effectively to Drop A-Sharp and A tunings. A MetalCoreST™  Model One is designed and voiced for Lower Tunings. Using a 25.5” scale the extra 3/4” helps enable this range when compared to common set neck guitars.
