With a distressed body and antiqued hardware, AXL Badwater Series guitars look and feel like rare earth relics, unleashed after centuries of mineralization. These shocking guitars are equipped with EMG-designed pickups for hard rocking tones and clean delivery.
The Badwater 1216 (AL-820) is built with a set rock maple neck, 2 EMG-designed Alnico humbuckers and a classic-style single cutaway design. The guitar’s rosewood fretboard helps deliver a warm, thick tone. The scale length is a traditional 24 3/4” for vintage punch. The 1216 will be available in all five popular Badwater finishes, crackle blue, crackle black, crackle brown, antique white and antique brown.
Each 1216 guitar body has been distressed individually by the AXL workshop, so no two are alike. The 1216 comes with carefully distressed pickguard, tone and volume knobs, and anodized tuning machines, bridge assembly and strap buttons for a unique look and vintage feel.
