    I have a generic preference for fat necks -- I have a 69 thinline Tele that's a nice full U-shape and it's my favorite -- or it was till I got my hands on the Cutlass, which plays effortlessly. But...

    how long will the battery last?

    I've had my Cutlass for a couple of years now and I don't think I've ever changed the battery in this thing. I carry a spare nine-volt to gigs just in case but should I go ahead and swap it out...

    I think this is actually kind of a tough call. The new ones have gone up a fair amount, which seems like it would drag the used ones up in price. And comparable guitars -- I'm looking at you, Silver...

    For what it's worth, I found the StingRay to play easiest with the trem down tight as I could get it. Felt like I was fighting it when the trem could move. Don't know why this is but it worked for me.

    Love my Cutlass -- SSS but I assume the HSS is as good -- plays effortlessly & sounds great. But it's basically a Strat. If you want an improved version of the Strat, this is the best I've played....

    I agree, btw, that the trem shouldn't make a difference -- I have a Strat set up to float, & it plays and bends super-easy. But something made a difference here. And I don't use the trem much at all....

    StingRay plays stiff

    Still working on this -- I've got my pickup heights adjusted so the StingRay sounds pretty good. But it still plays really stiff compared to the Cutlass, which just plays like butter. Truss rod...
