Classic Cutlass design with a trio of heat-treated single-coil pickups.

The Ernie Ball Music Man Cutlass HT electric guitar features the familiar shape and feel of previous Cutlass models, with custom Music Man pickup technology that delivers an incredibly dynamic and responsive playing experience. It shares many of the standard specs of the original Cutlass, including a contoured alder body, a roasted figured maple neck with 22 stainless steel frets, Schaller locking tuners and a Music Man vintage tremolo.

The set of three HT (Heat Treated) single-coil pickups use patent-pending pole pieces and a large neodymium magnet. They are able to achieve an ultra-high output and powerful low-end response while retaining clean, clear tone at lower volume levels. The bridge pickup has been overwound with plain enamel magnet wire, providing a strong tone, while the neck and middle pickups have been underwound with heavy formvar magnet wire for a more traditional voice. The Cutlass HT’s electronics package also includes a push-push adjustable 20dB boost function and a transparent buffered output for complete tonal consistency, wherever your volume control is set.
