    NGD - Cutlass HSS RS

    Hi everyone,

    Registered myself at this forum as I just got my first EBMM Guitar. A Cutlass HSS RS in Vintage Turquoise.

    Floored and Sold.

    I was on the fence initially between a Suhr Classic Pro and EBMM Cutlass. Glad I chose the latter. Build quality and playability is spot on, right outta the box. For info, this guitar was shipped from USA to Singapore and it arrived unscathed, gig ready!

    I have since sold my 2 American Fender strats and a Custom Kiesel Delos I received in July this year. The Cutlass smoked them all.

    So, I’ve come across this many times when browsing the forum for Cutlass info. There’s no NGD without pic post.

    The neck and fretboards a little dry though. Singapore does not carry tru-oil and all I can find is Howard’s Feed n Wax and cleaning oil. Is this ok for roasted maple?

    Thanks

    Congrats!!!! Great choice, very nice.

    As far as the Tru-Oil question, I would recommend Ernie Ball Fretboard Conditioner for the neck and fingerboard. Personally I wipe mine down with string changes and take a clean t-shirt to take up the excess. Are you able to get that product in Singapore?

    Tru-oil, if you were to get it, should only be used on the back of the neck and followed a few coats of of Tru-Wax also.

    That's a great color. I know it's a standard option, but I don't think I've actually seen it before.

    Can you order from Amazon? I clean with Murphy's oil soap and use Birchwood Gunstock wax. Any fretboard conditioner will do, of course, but you may as well go with Ernie Ball.

    Yes, Ernie Ball Fretboard Conditioner is available at the local music store. The Cutlass also came with 3 complimentary Ernie Ball wipes “)

    Noted on tru-oil only on back of neck.

    Thanks for share, mikeller.

    Cheers!

    Hi KDude,

    Thanks for share.

    Yea it’s available on Amazon. But was hoping to get something that’s readily accessible here in Singapore. Will definitely order tru-oil and gunstock wax In future cos that’s what the team in Ernie Ball uses!
