      Comments about Sterling by Music Man Cutlass CT50 Electric Guitar:

      Sterling Cutlass:

      I bought the olympic white model, looks much different than the pictures here, more of a cream color than bleach-white, mint pickguard, I like it. Very playable out of the box. I did some minor string height and neck relief adjustments (personal preference stuff), and played it for a couple of weeks. Wow this thing feels great, plays great, and sounds great!

      The pickups are Alnico, measure 4.8K (whatever that's worth), and sound very Strat-like, more vintage than hot, very nice! I prefer a little hotter bridge pickup, no need to change it out though.

      After a few weeks of playing it, I had to start wiggling the pickup selector switch to get the middle pickup to work, ugh. I had a new selector switch (from another project), so, I figured I'd void the warranty, pull the pickguard, and replace the switch myself. The pots are full size, but, the switch is one of the cheap-O looking models, figures. I installed a slightly hotter bridge pickup while I had the guard off.

      At the sale price (~350), I still consider the guitar a bargain. At regular price (~500?), there may be better options?

      I did NOT buy this guitar from Musicians Friend. I have bought a number of items from MF, never a problem, maybe I should have done that this time!

          Comments about Sterling by Music Man Cutlass CT50 Electric Guitar:

          So I got the red one, wife saids its pink? Anyway we both like the color,sort of retro looking. Very comfortable to play and mine came with10s on it. I have played for years so I know how to make adjustments etc . I did polish the frets which makes a big deference when bending strings. Guitar is rock solid and sounds very strat like. Overall I'm very pleased with my purchase.
