The Silhouette model is the first production electric guitar by Music Man. It has a compact, lightweight contoured body that feels incredibly comfortable to play. Kitted out with DiMarzio pickups and built from top quality tonewoods, the Silhouette model is ideal for the modern guitarist.
The Silhouette body has been built from high quality alder tonewood and weighs in at just under 3kg for a featherweight feel. It looks and feels compact, while the body contours allow for a very comfortable playing feel. The body comes in a neat Black high gloss polyester finish.
A select maple neck of 25 1/2 inch scale length is fitted tightly to the body via a sculpted 5-bolt neck joint. With a spacious double cutaway body and sculpted joint this opens up access to all frets without your hand becoming obstructed. The neck is hand-treated with gunstock oil and a special wax blend for a slick playing feel.
Aboard the neck is a maple fingerboard which offers 24 high profile medium width stainless steel frets. Music Man have chosen black dot inlays to decorate the frets, guiding you along with confidence. There is also an adjustable truss rod at the bottom of the neck where it meets the body at the front.
Music Man have applied three DiMarzio pickups to amplify the Silhouette guitar; this includes two DiMarzio PAF PRO humbuckers and one DiMarzio custom single coil. This combination of pickups works delightfully, providing you an unparalleled range of universal tones, from vintage PAF sound to more modern and contemporary tones.
The Silhouette is built with innovative "Silent Circuit" technology to reduce humming or unwanted noise; this provides a totally clear sound even when you're using the single coil pickup.
Master Volume and Tone controls plus a 5-way lever pickup switch enable you to shape your sound to suit your playing style.
The Silhouette employs a chrome-plated, hardened steel Music Man vintage tremolo bridge with bent steel saddles for increased sustain. The small headstock is fitted with the 4 over 2 Schaller M6-IND locking tuners which are dependable even after hammering the whammy bar.
The sleek black finish of the Silhouette body is complemented by a matching black pickguard and chrome hardware.
