    Music Man Cutlass!

    I picked up a used Music Man Cutlass the other day. It's a cool guitar! Great neck finish, vibrato, stainless steel frets...

    But why is the neck so dang small! I can deal with the 1-5/8" width, but the 0.750" neck thickness at the first fret may be a challenge!

    The color came out weird in this pick. It's Firemist Silver which is silver with a little blue in it.

    Some more pics-

    Smooth neck heel!



    Skinnier neck than I'm used to!



    I keep grabbing the G string tuner when I want to tune the high E string!

    More electronics than I'm used to! It has a noise cancelling circuit that uses a coil and creates hum that's out of phase with the hum from the pickups!



    Should the bridge hardware be this crusty on a 3 year old guitar? The intonation and action screws on the low E and A strings were seized with rust!

    I asked what this was in the "What have you bought in the last 48 hours?" thread. I didn't scroll all the way through yet. I had just found out today that the fender forum is once again back on the straight and narrow. Yay !!!

    hmm, crusty hardware. Sweaty player had it, maybe?

    I didn't see that. I moved right on to your Les Paul Deluxe comments.

    There are so many ways to take this comment. I'm not going to touch it with a ten foot pole!

    Nice axe. I do have a love-hate with MM guitars.
    The nut is a bit narrow for my tastes, but the thickness varies on the models - some are good some aren't.
    My biggest beef with them is that the neck seems to be moved back in the guitar, so my left (fretting) arm feels cramped when I;m playing them.
    This is with every one of their guitars, though not the basses.
    I do have long arms anyway, (maybe that's why I like Gibson Firebirds too...)
