What we say:

The Ball Family Reserve is for very short runs of instruments that are absolutely premium: the best possible woods, unusual finishes and an even greater level of hand-crafting than the usual high Music Man standards ensures an exclusive selection of unbeatable instruments with special provenance. These hand-made instruments are non-catalogue, limited runs made usually with exotic woods or special finishes. These hand-made instruments are the best of the best.

Music Man’s original shape Axis is a hard-rocking axe with a famously good feel and balance.

This steely beauty has a frankly stunning Quilted Maple top with a hand-stained trans Steel Blue finish. This top really pops! It’s incredible looking and is framed beautifully with Black binding which continues up the Figured neck to frame the fingerboard. 22 stainless steel frets are here as a Music Man trademark and sign of not only quality but longevity.

Hardware-wise, this Axis has a pair of custom wound Dimarzio humbuckers not available anywhere else! These units go back to the days when non other than Eddie Van Halen co-created the Axis as his signature model! As you’d expect, this thing rocks HARD! The pickups are juicy and hot without being ridiculous: this is all about tone!

Music Man’s own take on the famous locking tremolo system allows a variety of whammy techniques whilst holding tunings fast, ably assisted by a series of locking tuners up on the 4+2 headstock. This trem is set to dive only, another tip of the hat to Mr Van Halen

This hand-built and finished guitar is a true masterpiece and like other BFR instruments, is available only in extremely limited numbers! Grab yours before it’s too late!
