Comments about Sterling by Music Man AX40D Electric Guitar:
What to say???? These guitars are not to be compared to the EB Music Man Axis!!! That being said, some may have received a great guitar right "Out of the Box" but I did not. The saddles on the Floyd Rose moved as I began to tune the guitar. So the intonation was gone. Surprisingly, some of the strings were rusty. Go figure!!! I use EB strings on all my guitars and never encountered it. The electronics are not the best, volume knob and switches were noisy. However the pickups sounded very good, when I was able to get the guitar in tune somewhat. Very tight low ends and very clean and punchy sounding. One other thing that I must mention is that the neck felt great, but the fret work was bad (fret buzz).
The bottom line is that you win some and you lose some. If I could have purchased this guitar for less than five hundred, I could afford to put money into it and fix it right. I would suggest if this is the guitar you want and you run into these issues; send it back and keep trying until you receive a good one. For me, it just wasn't something I was willing to dedicate my time to. However, Musicians' Friend made things right and is always a great company to deal with. Good luck
