Bel Air

Each Bel Air delivers the stage-ready marriage of hand-assembly and top-of-the-line components players expect from AXL USA. For the Bel Air, we've mined the vintage vein by assembling it with a single TV Jones Power 'Tron pickup and USA B5 Bigsby vibrato. Combine those with other under-the-hood components like TonePros Kluson tuners, CTS pots, Orange Drop Capacitor and Switchcraft jack. The TonePros locking roller TOM bridge and GraphTech Tusq XL nut deliver spot-on intonation and singing sustain even after stretching the Bigsby to its swampy limits.

Our adventurous AXL USA players want a full range of tone choices, so we've included a coil split so players have equally powerful single-coil tone with a push-pull pot. We've loaded all this horsepower into a solid mahogany single cutaway slab body with one-piece mahogany neck for a vintage-style machine that fires on all cylinders to pull off surf, twang, rockabilly and classic rock with ease.
