Considering the overall quality of the AX Series instruments, I shouldn’t have been surprised by the loud and inspiring tones that sprang out of the AX40. I loved the hard-hitting midrange, balanced highs and highly responsive low end, all of which were ideal for crunchy or heavy styles.

I was stunned by how many details shone through the AX20’s jangly tone, loud response and pleasing overtones. Country, blues and rock are the AX20’s forte, largely because the fixed bridge and string-through-body setup creates an airy tonality that’s as much fun to hear as it is to play.

The folks at Music Man and Praxis have done an exemplary job recreating faithful reproductions of the classic Music Man designs at an appealing price point. I encourage beginners and pros alike to check out the Sterling line and to welcome them into the Music Man family.

With John Petrucci’s initials on the headstock, it’s obvious that the JP50 is designed with furious fretwork in mind. Features such as the asymmetrical neck shape and the JP50’s locking trem and tuners are typically unheard of at this price point.

The Ray34 and Ray35 are fine replicas of the original Stingray, in both construction and sound.
