Ernie Ball Music Man has released the Jason Richardson Artist Series Cutlass, designed in collaboration with Jason. Available in six and seven-string variations. With some great colours on offer as well.
Jason Richardson Artist Series Cutlass
The new Ernie Ball Music Man Jason Richardson Artist Series Cutlass looks like a great release. EBMM released a six-string variation with custom electronics and a buckeye-burl top back in October 2020. Now we have both six and seven-string variations available, plus a whole slew of new finishes to choose from.
The model comes with translucent alder bodies, with a burl top in three different finishes. These include Majora Purple, Rorschach Red and Natural Buckeye Burl Black Burst. Along with an Empress White finish that has an opaque white sparkle. All models have 24 medium jumbo frets, on a roasted maple neck with a set of dot inlays on an ebony or roasted maple fretboard, dependent on the colour guitar you opt for. The guitars are all factory fitted with a custom EBMM floating vibrato.
Both variations are fitted with a pair of custom EBMM ceramic humbuckers. They also have an active preamp with a silent circuit. There is a push/pull gain boost on the volume pot, a push/push coil-split on the tone pot, plus a three-way pickup selector.
There is a lot of high-quality here for your money, and I think the new colours look great. With only a $200 uplift for the seven-string version, I think EBMM are offering two great guitars. These are made in the USA and I’ve always had good experiences with eth EBMM models I have owned myself.

RRP – USD six-string USD 3599.00, and seven-string USD 3799.00
