Every time I pick up a Music Man guitar I remember that their necks and fret work are so, so good.  This guitar has a beautiful birdseye maple neck that feels amazing.

There's a lot of tonal flexibility here.  Pull the tone pot to coil tap, and pull the volume pot for a boost.

The guitar is in excellent condition.  It obviously hasn't been played much, making it a great value versus a new one.

Includes the original case and paperwork.

Guitar Player Magazine review;

First introduced in the 1970s, the Cutlass has stood the test of time as one of Music Man’s preeminent rock guitars. This latest Cutlass is designed in collaboration with Jason Richardson (Chelsea Grin, All That Remains) and is a six-string version of the Cutlass HH seven-string we reviewed in our October 2019 issue. 

The super-sleek guitar on deck here features an alder body with a buckeye-burl top and a roasted-maple neck wearing a hand-rubbed oil-and-wax finish and topped with a 25.5-inch-scale ebony fingerboard.  

The neck’s ultra-slim profile and flat 15-inch radius make for a playing surface that’s as fast as an F-16, and the 24 stainless-steel frets – with their perfectly shaped crowns, mirror polish, and rounded tips – add to the supersonic feel. 

There’s simply nothing to impede your hand here, and ripping to the fretboard’s upper reaches is facilitated by the deep cutaway and rounded heel. The neck attaches very solidly with five bolts, and the truss-rod adjustment wheel is right at the end of the neck, making it easy to tweak the neck relief as needed. 

Kudos to the locking Schaller tuners, straight string pull, and slippery Melamine nut, all of which contribute to the stability of the system.

Our review Cutlass played beautifully, and its factory setup provided low action and tuneful intonation in all positions. 

The moisture-free woods and solid hardware give the Cutlass a lively and sustaining acoustic tone, and when amped up it delivered impressive sounds, whether played relatively clean through a Fender Deluxe Reverb or with heavy overdrive via a Mesa/Boogie Rectifier Badlander head through its onboard speaker IRs and a Celestion-loaded cabinet, as well as with a selection of overdrive pedals.

The direct-mounted Music Man humbuckers feed a master-volume control with a push-push 20dB volume boost, a master tone with push-push coil split, and a three-way toggle switch. There’s very little free wiring inside the control cavity, since most of the components are arranged on a PCB.

One internal trim pot adjusts the boost gain, and another adjusts the Silent Circuit gain for maximum effectiveness. Music Man doesn’t recommend altering it from the stock setting, nor was it necessary, as the Silent Circuit nukes noise very effectively.
