Music Man’s Cutlass model is already a modern classic, with its distinctive offset body shape, pristine hardware and an instantly recognisable headstock design. This affordable 'Sterling by Music Man' version of the Cutlass promises practically the same tonal versatility and comfort of its US-made cousin — at a fantastic price-point!
Lightweight Poplar Body
A lightweight Poplar body makes the Sterling by Music Man Cutlass a brilliant onstage workhorse — not putting any serious strain on your back or shoulders so that you can perform at your best! Its neutral sonic qualities ensure that the spanky-sounding single-coils deliver robust lows, crispy mids and searing highs for a balanced voice overall.
Addictive Neck Shape
All Music Man guitars are renowned for having incredibly pleasant neck profiles. The Sterling Cutlass is no exception, and is certain to keep you playing for hours on end with its medium-thin, ergonomically-shaped hard Maple neck. A smooth finish enhances the neck's playability even further for an ultra-slippery feel, while 22 narrow frets provide an easy playing experience under the fingers.
Proprietary Single-Coil Pickups
While Music Man's USA Cutlass comes equipped with a set of custom single-coils, the California-based brand hasn't let its inexpensive, Far Eastern-made Cutlass suffer with sub-standard pickups. Fitted with a trio of Sterling-designed single-coils, these harness the same sound characteristics of the standard Cutlass' pickups in great detail — expressive, articulate and rich in harmonic overtones.
To get the most out of the single-coils, Sterling has installed a 5-way selector switch that lets you attain various pickup combinations for a wide tonal palette. Master volume and tone controls give you plenty of further sound-sculpting options — making the Sterling by Music Man Cutlass an instrument adaptable for various musical styles!
