A cutlass is a sword right? And a car as well, so it seems appropriate to name a guitar that. It's such a swashbuckling sort of name. This is a new model for Music Man. It is set up with one humbucker in the bridge with two single coil pickups. It has a vintage sunburst finish, rosewood fingerboard and tremelo. The pickup set up is awesome, very versatile. The neck feels great, the sound is phenomenal. I like this model a lot, it has a vintage vibe with a modern sensibility. It covers all the basses. Comes with hard case.Learn More

I've been away a few days. There is always something cool when I come back. I walked in the shop and went straight to this guitar - it's like it was calling my name. Of course I had been drunk for five days, which might account for some of that (I made that up. Don't mention it to Eric, he frowns on that sort of thing). Anyway, here we have an Ernie Ball Music Man James Valentine “Valentine” guitar that features a slab ash body, two Ernie Ball Music Man designed pickups (1-humbucker/1-single coil), with 3-way switch, coil tap, modern hardtail bridge with vintage bent steel saddles, 25.5-inch scale, oil and wax rubbed roasted maple neck with 10-inch radius maple fingerboard, 22 stainless steel frets, oversized 4-over-2 headstock, and compensated nut designed for superior tuning stability.
