This is a new model for Musicman, and we are really excited about this.
You may think that a brand with such history behind as Ernie Ball/Music Man would just rest on their laurels and keep relasing more or less the same bass as usual in different finishes and specs. That's why we like so much when something new comes out.
With a new comfortable desing, solid bridge, oversized classic 3+1 headstock and excellent comfort and balance, the Cutlass bass comes with a poweful Single Coil Split pickup as well as 100% passive electronics.
The lows and low mids are remarkable in this bass. But if you dig in hard or use a pick you get as much brightness that you could wish for. Fingerstyle with the tone wide open gives you a sound that will fit into most styles of music. Roll off the tone and you enter Motown land. Using a pick delivers one of the best P sounds we've heard lately. Cool.
To sum up, the Cutlass bass is a modern bass that is solid as a rock but is vintage orientated. If you are in the market looking for a really well built bass that will last for a lifetime and you prefer classic tones from the 60's and 70's, this could perfectly be your next bass. Check it out.
