The Cutlass guitar by Music Man has the look of a real classic with the addition of modern and innovative appointments. With a lightweight, asymmetrical body kitted out with a modern tremolo bridge system and classic single coils, the Cutlass sounds and feels exquisite.
Constructed from alder, the asymmetrical double cutaway body has a comfortable, lightweight feel, weighing in at just 7lbs and 7oz. The body comes in a vibrant high gloss polyester Vintage Turquoise finish. The body has a vintage look but a modern build with a wide range of great tones on offer.
A 25 1/2 inch scale neck is firmly fitted to the body via a 5 bolt-on neck joint. The neck is made from select maple and feels comfortable to grip in your hand. The neck joint is sculpted, which with the double cutaway body facilitates access to all the frets.
The neck is topped with a smooth rosewood fingerboard decorated with white dot inlays. The Cutlass guitar offers 22 high profile medium width frets made of stainless steel, built to last forever. Where the neck meets the body there is an adjustable truss rod, which unlike similar guitars of this kind, does not require you to remove the strings or use a component.
Music Man have employed three custom wound single coil pickups, inspired by mid-60s specifications. Placed in the neck, middle and bridge positions, each single coils serves a unique purpose to contribute their own individual tones.
Music Man have also incorporated a new "Silent Circuit" system which ensures each single coil pickup projects its natural sound. The addition of a "Silent Circuit" reduces unwanted humming or feedback, keeping the tone completely true.
Controls for master Volume and Tone feature alongside a 5-way lever pickup selector. Music Man have also included a transparent buffered output to keep a steady tone throughout any performance.
The Cutlass body is fitted with a Music Man Modern tremolo bridge with vintage bent steel saddles. This bridge operates so smoothly thanks to a modern setup, and you'll rarely go out of tune thanks to the Schaller M6-IND locking tuners on the headstock. The tuners offer complete stability, and are fitted in a 4 over 2 style with straight string pull.
The Vintage Turquoise finish of the body is complemented by a parchment aluminium-lined pickguard. For added protection and storage, Music Man supply a hardshell case to transport the Cutlass guitar from one place to the next. The Music Man Cutlass Trem RW Guitar is the ultimate performance model, blending the best of classic and modern features.
