The Ernie Ball Music Man Cutlass HSS solidbody electric guitar blends a classic design with modern appointments for comfortable, reliable performance. A single humbucker and two single-coil pickups deliver an amazing range of tone, while an active wide-spectrum Silent Circuit works to keep the single-coils hum free. Features such as stainless steel frets and locking tuners add modern touches to this highly playable vintage-inspired instrument. The Music Man Cutlass HSS feels like an old friend but offers new features for modern players.
The contoured alder body and maple neck of the Cutlass HSS will feel comfortable and familiar to many players. Two 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, and flipping to the bridge humbucker will deliver full-throttle tones. The combination is perfect for blues, rock, fusion, country, pop, and more. The vibrato bridge/tailpiece boasts vintage-style bent-steel saddles for classic tone and feel, while the double cutaway and sculpted neck joint allows smooth access to the higher frets.
The Cutlass boasts multiple modern features to give you the performance and stability you demand. Schaller locking tuners offer solid tuning stability, even with heavy vibrato 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.
The Cutlass is loaded with two 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.
