Ever since the team here at Sam Ash first heard about the new Ernie Ball Music Man StingRay and Cutlass guitars models, two instruments re-imagined from classic Music Man 1970s designs, we’ve been excited to get them in our hands. The StingRay and Cutlass merge the classic design of early Music Man aesthetics with the groundbreaking engineering of modern Ernie Ball Music Man guitars that deliver unmatched playability, feel and tone.
Ernie Ball Music Man Cutlass
The Ernie Ball Music Man Cutlass features a new oversized 4-over-2 headstock with Schaller M6-IND tuners and a soft V-to-C-shaped 25.5-inch scale neck with 10-inch radius and stainless steel frets, maple or rosewood fingerboard, ultra-light satin polyurethane finish and compensated nut. Its extremely lightweight,resonant alder body offers unobstructed upper fret access.
The Cutlass has three custom mid-‘60s-style staggered-pole single coil pickups operating in conjunction with a new active wide spectrum silent circuit that eliminates the hum associated with single coil designs and provides tonal consistency at all volumes. The Cutlass is available at Sam Ash now in Black, Ivory White, Vintage Sunburst and Vintage Turquoise at $1,499.99.
Ernie Ball Music Man Stingray
The Ernie Ball Music Man StingRay features two custom vintage-output humbucking pickups with plain enamel wire and Alnico 5 magnets, and redesigned electronics that provide tonal consistency at all volume levels.
Other features include a super-responsive modern tremolo design with bent steel saddles, an oversized 4-over-2 headstock with Schaller M6-IND tuners and a compensated nut for precise intonation. It will be available in Black, Ivory White, Vintage Tobacco Sunburst and Chili Red. The Ernie Ball Music Man StingRay guitar is available at Sam Ash now at $1,499.99.
