This is the model from before the roasted maple necks going on clearance.

You could probably get a decent discount on the other colors if you called in.

This is an amazing guitar for this price, so I thought I would share this.

--------------------------------------

The Ernie Ball Music Man Cutlass guitar pays homage to the vintage styling and cosmetic appeal of original Music Man models. Updated vintage spec electronics, super smooth vintage tremolo system, and lightweight alder and african mahogany bodies are welcome refinements to these new modern renditions. Oversized 4 over 2 headstock with straight string pull for superior tuning stability and flawless craftsmanship throughout make these new modern classics a perfect culmination of old world aesthetics and styling with modern design and playability. Includes hardshell case.

This plus one.

"Clearance" at GC could mean floor model, customer returns, etc. Thankfully they have a decent return policy. But make sure you give a good look over and are willing to jump through the return hoops. Such is the price of the discount.

I just returned (at the store) a "clearance" Gibson bought from GC online that showed up with serious issues (filthy fretboard that had been played ALOT, numerous dings in the body and headstock). I then went home and online purchased another of the same model hoping for better luck on the next one. They sent me the same guitar two days later. The exact serial number. They didn't even inspect it or send it back to a wharehouse. Just slapped another UPS label on it and sent it to me. I about lost my sh*t when I opened it up to find the exact same guitar!!

I'm hard pressed to give you even 1. EBMM are amazing. This model isn't great if you have really large hands. That's all I got. Or if you prefer roasted maple just wait a bit and you'll find them used at this price.

necks are sometimes weird - this is a slightly narrow nut for my guitar playing, so it really depends what you like.
resale sometimes sucks (combo of price and length of time to sell)
active pickups (not really a dealbreaker for me, but for some on a SSS, not ideal)

that's it. EBMM makes killer guitars. I've had a few EBMM JPM's and loved them (still have one 7 without piezo)

I'm pretty sure this guitar does have SS frets.

I think cutlass have had stainless steel frets since they introduced these back around 2016 or so.

A very good price, but most likely you'll receive a display model from a GC store as opposed to a new in box guitar from the warehouse.

I own a couple Fender CS Strats, a Nash S63 and the Sunburst/rosewood version of this (and have owned about 12 other USA Strats over the years)... The EB MM Cutlass is an AMAZING guitar/Strat... I consistently compare it to my CS Strats as far as quality and wonder which I think is best. The Cutlass has SS frets which I really like. The whole guitar is incredibly well made and sounds amazing. It is more of a very clear/articulate tone with great feel. The Cutlass is the best intonated guitar I own and just sings something magically - I remember thinking "wow... so this is how a great guitar is supposed to sound when strumming a chord.." everything just works. Another plus is the silent circuit (no 60 cycle hum). I played this against a PRS JM Silver Sky at a store last week and while the JM SS is a great guitar, I just couldn't see any reason to change. The biggest 2 factors with the EBMM Cutlass is the neck feel (definitely smaller but it works great and I have decently large hands). And the Tone... an awesome clear crisp tone that sounds great. My CS Strats by comparison are a little more rounded and toned down tonewise. That is not to say the Cutlass is biting or sharp at all.. it's just clear and nice with decent warmth. The best guitar buy you can get IMO.
