    Comments about Ernie Ball Music Man Cutlass Trem Maple Fingerboard Electric Guitar:

    This thing checks all the boxes if you're in the market for a single coil 25 1/2 inch scale guitar. The fit finish and playability of this guitar is second to none. I wasn't in the market for a guitar but I picked this one up and I had to have it. I bonded with this guitar instantly. It felt like an old friend. It sounds as good as it looks. The pickups make beautiful sounds. The silent circuit isn't completely noiseless. It cuts out some of the hum but if you're expecting humbucker like silence you'll be disappointed. BUT.... the silent circuit does give you authentic strat like tones. It's a fair trade believe me. Music Man guitars are famous for their necks and this Cutlass is no different. The neck is silky smooth and plays like a dream. It's a beautifully cut piece of quarter sawn maple with a maple cap finger board. The only thing I wish were different were more color choices. The colors are kind of bland. Everything on the guitar is top notch. All the hardware is perfect and very high quality. The input jack for example looks like it'll last 30 years. The tremolo works great. Perfect set up and intonation. Buy it. I can't recommend this guitar enough.

      Comments about Ernie Ball Music Man Cutlass Trem Maple Fingerboard Electric Guitar:

      I've always loved the sound of single coil pickups and the overall tone of the Fender Stratocaster. Unfortunately, it never was a comfortable playing instrument and the neck is cumbersome. The bridge pickup always seemed shallow when overdrive was applied. The new Music Man Cutlass is an awesome instrument. The neck is so comfortable and quick. The tone generated by this guitar is amazing and the single coil pickups are a step above the Fender versions. The fit and finish are superb and the weight and balance of the guitar are perfect. The quiet circuitry cuts out the hum and noise but does not affect the sustain of the guitar. I can't say enough about the overall craftsmanship and beauty of this guitar. If you're a Strat player do yourself a favor and play this guitar.

        Comments about Ernie Ball Music Man Cutlass Trem Maple Fingerboard Electric Guitar:

        It has great tone, feels nicely built, easy to play, and has the added perk of looking beautiful. Unfortunately, the one I received had a lot of fret buzz. Even after having a professional setup the fret buzz persisted. Because I am still uncertain whether or not this was a build issue or a setup issue (although with two professional setups I find it unlikely to be a setup issue), I am giving it four stars because the guitar did deliver in every other department as I anticipated. All said, given the price tag I could not overlook the buzzing issues I was having. I personally felt if I kept the guitar I may regret it sometime down the road, so I ended up using the return policy to purchase another guitar (a Les Paul). Posting about my short experience with the guitar to give anyone curious about purchasing it some information.

        A little side note: I also play bass. Having thoroughly enjoyed playing the Music Man Stingray 4 bass, I am still a fan of Music Man and believe they are a quality company. In the future, I may give another guitar a whirl if I'm feeling it.
