Here is a unique and impressive new member of our used selection. As die-hard G&L guys we were excited to get our hands on a Music Man simply because of their old ties to Leo Fender, and amidst a slew of interesting innovations it's clear that they have earned their stripes as a top notch manufacturer. As an homage to the classic S-style HSS the Cutlass exceeds your expectations right off the bat with a hand-finished maple neck that plays real fast largely due to the slick stainless steel frets, modern 10" radius and carefully crafted neck pocket that gives your hands instant access to the whole board.
The pickups are a custom Music Man design that offer glassy single coil tones in the neck and middle and a beefed up but nuanced humbucker in the bridge. You can get all the classic sounds out of the Cutlass with ease and we have always been fans of a humbucker bridge pickup in this setting because you never have to worry about your twang being too brittle or thin. You'll also notice that this baby runs with a 9-Volt battery in the back, which operates a noise cancelling circuit making it virtually silent even when you're rocking the single coils alone. It got along great with our JAM TubeDreamer 58 and was right in the SRV, John Mayer wheelhouse. Put together with the balanced response of a lightweight Alder body, they got the recipe just right.
Overall the Music Man Cutlass is a solid axe and a great way to get into the HSS world with the comfort of world class materials and truly creative craftsmanship. This guitar was traded to us by a customer who was looking to move into another tonal spectrum which gives you the chance to grab this exceptionally mint guitar at a great discount. Come try it today!
