    NGD - Cutlass RS - college graduation present

    Hello everyone. This NGD is actually regarding my son Ericís new Cutlass RS. Heís not a member of the forum.

    Eric just graduated from college and Wendy and I gave him this sweet Cutlass. He has had a wonderful BFR redwood topped Axis for the last nine years and this is his first guitar since then! He still has the Axis.



    His two main influences are Hendrix and SRV so I knew he was interested in that Strat vibe. I just felt that if I got him a Strat, he would be disappointed with the giant neck heel. They have pretty boring wood at this price point, too. You need to spend $5,000 to get a Strat that I would want (relic).

    4 + 2 headstock, locking tuners, vastly superior tremolo, silent circuit, smooth neck heel, roasted neck with stainless frets, and a solitary tone knob.

    These are the features that allow me to say with confidence that the Cutlass out-Strats a Strat.
