    SBMM Prototype Cutlass coming my way

    Pulled the trigger on the COT50 prototype Pete has. Love buying guitars from Dubaldo. Best service from an etailer.

    I will eventually upgrade the 5-way switch to a CRL and the pickups to Rose Robusta pickups

    That's one sweet looking Cutlass! I'd love to know how it compares to a EBMM one.
    EVH - Blue Quilt
    1995 - Luke I - Pearl Blue
    2009 - 25th Anniversary
    2011 - Luke II - True Gold BFR
    2012 - Axis Tribute - Trans Pink
    2016 - Cutlass - Vintage Sunburst
    2017 - St. Vincent - Stealth Black

    Take a break from playin' guitar and read a webcomic: nemu*nemu!

    Like BP said in the Chapman video "You've got a room full of guitars, and no money!!"

    The paint is Fire Engine Red, so it's the only one in that color

    Arrived. well made. Wonder if it's basswood like production models. It weighs more than my SBMM Valentine. The wood is heavier than the Valentine's ash. The neck pickup is acting wonky. Way lower output than the other 2 pickups. Going to throw a set of Tex-Mex pickups in it with a better 5-way switch this weekend.

    If I were to buy a Cutlass that is the colour I would want. Nice looking guitar
    Just because you're paranoid doesn't mean they're not after you.

    Here's the info from Brian Martin, former VP at SBMM

    #9 CT50 Fire Engine Red THIS CAME ABOUT AS AN ARGUMENT BETWEEN MYSELF AND THE FACTORY. THIS IS WHAT THEY DETERMINED WHAT FIESTA RED WAS. IT IS MORE LIKE "OSHA ORANGE" OR A SICK TOMATO...

    So I have prototype #9

    Have some Fender Tex-Mex pickups and better 5-way switch on the way
