Ernie Ball Music Man

Description

The Ernie Ball Music Man Cutlass HT electric guitar features the familiar shape and feel of previous Cutlass models, now with custom Music Man pickup technology inspired by over a decade of guitar string research that delivers an incredibly dynamic and responsive playing experience. The pickups are able to achieve an ultra-high output, powerful low-end response while retaining a distinctively clean, clear tone at lower volume levels. The set of three HT (Heat Treated) pickups uses patent-pending pole pieces and a large neodymium magnet, which provides remarkable definition. The bridge pickup has been overwound with plain enamel magnet wire, providing a strong, powerful tone, while the neck and middle pickups have been underwound with heavy formvar magnet wire for a more traditional voice. All three pickups have been crafted for a complimentary tonal offering across all five switch positions. In addition, the electronics package includes a push-push adjustable 20dB boost function and a transparent buffered output for complete tonal consistency wherever your volume control is set. The Cutlass HT also includes a contoured alder body, a roasted figured maple neck, 22 stainless frets, Schaller locking tuners and a Music Man vintage tremolo.
