        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.

          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!
