A unique electric guitar with a rugged, vintage flair, and outstanding playability.

The AXL Badwater Jacknife Electric Guitar boasts a ferocious "V" body with a vintage-style distressed finish. This bad boy offers the comfortable feel of a worn in guitar right out of the box. Two EMG-designed overwound P-90 pickups deliver the maximum output and power that today's heavy metal players demand. This ground-breaking AXL electric guitar is the ultimate model for power, playability and style. The AVL Badwater Series received Guitar World's December 2007 Gold Award for overall value.

The AXL Badwater Jacknife guitar is available in 3 finish styles. The crackle brown and white finish has a reptilian texture throughout its body. The off-white finish has a rusted, phantom-like appearance. The brown finish model has the look of a museum-quality guitar stored away for decades.

Comments about Axl Badwater Jacknife Electric Guitar:

I was a little afraid to get a guitar at this price, but oh what a great suprize! It plays like a dream. It not only looks evil, it plays down and dirty. I was going to put in new pick ups but the ones that come with it are great. It's starting to be one of my top guitars.
