Ernie Ball Music Man Cutlass Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • Classic design
  • Modern construction
  • Hum-free performance
Classic design

The contoured alder body and maple neck of the Cutlass will feel comfortable and familiar to many players. Three Ernie Ball Music Man mid '60s-style single-coil pickups have the chime and bell-like tone that has been heard emanating from countless records and performances. Their tone is perfect for blues, rock, country, pop, and more. The tremolo boasts vintage-style, bent-steel saddles for classic tone and feel, while the double cutaway allows you good access to the higher frets.

Modern construction

The Cutlass boasts multiple modern features to give you the performance and stability that you demand. Schaller locking tuners offer solid tuning stability, even with heavy tremolo use, and the 22 stainless-steel frets will give you long-term use without wearing out. The Cutlass's compensated string nut lets you enjoy perfect intonation across the whole length of the fretboard. And the truss rod adjustment wheel, located at the heel of the neck, makes on-the-fly neck relief changes fast and easy.

Hum-free performance

The Cutlass is loaded with three custom Ernie Ball Music Man mid '60s-style single-coil pickups. But thanks to the installed active wide spectrum silent circuit, you'll enjoy hum- and buzz-free performance. The silent circuit provides 500 hours of battery life for worry-free performance while delivering tonal consistency through all five pickup selector positions.

A great guitar at any price

The pick ups are quiet and they sound great. The Cutlas plays perfect. This guitar is better than any S-type guitar that I have ever played in my 34 years as a guitar player. The tremolo is really smooth and stays in tune crazy well. The cutlas is a perfect guitar in all ways!

Great Throwback to the 1960s

I had the opportunity to own this guitar for a few days before returning it, and let me say that it's one of the most expertly constructed guitars I've ever played. I returned it ONLY because the tone did not appeal to me. If you like the tone from the mid-60s, you will love this. The neck is a subtle V contour at the nut that becomes a soft C at the heel and is done in a silky finish. Fantastic investment if you love the tone!
Music background: Teacher, hobbies.
