Musicman Silhouette Special HSS

By Ralph Todaro

Comments about Ernie Ball Music Man Silhouette Special HSS Tremolo Electric Guitar:

When I went to my local Guitar Center I had all intentions of buying a Gibson SG, they had a used one that I almost bought. Just before paying for the used SG, I said let me try this Music Man Silhouette HSS and to my surprise the guitar sounded great and played so comfortably. I played it through an Eric Clapton amp, 12 watts, 12 inch speaker, sounded sooo good. I brought the guitar home, played it through each of my three tube amps (Fender, Marshall and Egnater) and the sound is so clear and I love the DiMarzio pickups, plus the guitar, no matter what pickup you have selected is very quiet, no feedback or AC hum. There is a quiet circuit in the guitar. The neck is one of the most comfortable necks that I have ever held in my hands. I have owned many guitars and I'm not going to compare and say this one is better than the top brands that I have, it is different and very nice to play. If you go to G.C and try one you will not be disappointed. It is a great playing and sounding guitar. The best surprise was that there was almost $500.00 off the price.
