Ernie Ball Music Man Ball Family Reserve BFR Cutlass HSS Guitar, Blue Magic, Figured Maple Fretboard Neck and Fretboard
We are proud to introduce the Cutlass in a new HSS pickup configuration. Aside from the bridge pickup, the HSS Cutlass retains all of the familiar elements of the original including an alder body, oversized 4 over 2 headstock and super smooth modern tremolo. The bridge pickup in the HSS is a custom wound Music Man ceramic humbucker with a vintage sound that compliments the single coils yet has plenty of crunchy rhythm and biting lead tones.
This special edition Cutlass HSS BFR features a lightweight Alder body finished in Custom Blue Magic matte finish. Smooth satin figured white maple neck with figured maple fingerboard is accented with larger black position markers and hand fitted black binding. This BFR edition guitar comes with matching painted headstock and locking tuners. Parchment pickguard with contrasting black plastic parts and all black hardware completes the overall aesthetic package. Limited to 56 pieces worldwide.
