At Axl, guitars are made with an eye on the future, while still taking the time to pay homage to the great history of the instrument. Axl guitars offer incredible twists on classic body designs, as well as new body shapes, to capture the hearts and minds of a new generation of players. Eye-catching and ear-pleasing, Axl guitars offer everything a musician could possibly want. All of Axl's guitars are designed in the USA by dedicated artists and engineers who are truly world-class. As well, each instrument is intensely tested for real world application by professional musicians to ensure that it is built to be put through its paces. The goal for all Axl guitars is to be ruggedly designed, without giving up tone or playability. This thorough testing has led to Axl guitars winning several awards, including the Gold Award from Guitar World and the Approved Gearhead Award from GuitarGearHeads. With recognition like that, you know you're making the smart choice when you pick up an Axl guitar of your own.
Because there is no sacrifice on quality, Axl guitars are great options for beginners looking for a top quality instrument. First time guitarists should definitely have a look at options such as the Mayhem Clutch Electric Guitar or the Badwater Eldorado Electric Guitar. The Mayhem Clutch is perfect entry point for those who love their metal loud and furious! With single-coil pickups and humbucker, this axe offers premium tone control so you can shred with the best of them. On the other hand, the Backwater Eldorado offers seriously rocking tones and excellent playability. Of course, the first thing you're going to notice about this guitar is its distressed body and antiqued hardware. It looks like an ancient artifact from the lost city of El Dorado, but thanks to its EMG-designed pickups, it sounds like pure gold.
If you'd rather a guitar that is going to truly stand out from the pack, feast your eyes on the Bloodsport Fireax Electric Guitar. Perfect for riff slayers everywhere, this is a guitar that looks as intimidating as your shredding solos sound. With two humbuckers and a single-coil pickup, this guitar offers incredible tonal variety that you'll have to hear to believe.
Axl creates guitars for forward-thinking musicians. Never afraid to push the limits, an Axl guitar will have you tearing up the stage in no time.
