  1. Sterling Cutlass Short Scale - Mini Switches or Slide Switches: Opinions?

    Hi all. Just thought I'd throw this out there. I'll be modding my Sterling Cutlass short scale to include two 2-way switches for magnetic pickup series/parallel switching plus a third 3-way switch...

    The plate isn't hardened. That spells "worn out" pretty fast for the bearing edges. I've ordered a BladeRunner, which won't have that particular problem since there aren't any bearing edges.

    Just came across the BladeRunner trem, which has a ever-so-slightly wider string spacing but not enough to hurt. That looks good to me, and if the posts need to be moved I can either move them - or...

    Hmm ... looking at the Vega again, I'm not sure I'd want to spend that much on a trem when I could spend half of that for a nice one with the correct string spacing and reposition the posts. I've...

    Possibly! It's pricey but looks nice and seems to be well engineered. I've emailed them with a question, the answer to which will determine if that bridge will work for me.

    Thanks 3MB!
  6. Sterling Cutlass Short Scale Upgrades: Tremolo Problem!

    Hi everyone. Thought I would post here as I'm having a problem upgrading my new Sterling Cutlass Short Scale.

    Everything is coming along fine except for one thing: The tremolo plate is not...

    You will need definitely need to use a superswitch for something like that. Coil splits and parallel wiring requires more switch functionality than a standard 5-way switch provides.

    To compare Sterling to EBMM is really a bit of a stretch. I previously owned two EBMM Silhouettes and also had a Sterling version prior to the EBMMs. I'd wholeheartedly recommend getting the EBMM if...

    I'm glad you were able to find it. I also sold something before that I really wish I had back. It's somewhere over in Europe, I'll never see it again.

    I just ordered the Graph Tech Ghost Piezo saddles and will work on drilling the bridge plate holes in the next few days.

    I had those on a parts guitar, they're already installed on the Sterling. I got them from Carvin back in the day. They also used tuners with two pin locating pins instead of screws. Kiesel has them...

    I'll be drilling the trem plate for the wires as I always do. It's more work and costs a bit in drill bits, but it's worth it to me in the end for appearance purposes. For drilling I use several 1/8"...

  14. NGD :: Sterling Cutlass Short Scale (Mint Green)

    Hello everyone. I received a new Sterling Cutlass Short Scale on Friday, and though there were some initial issues (mostly with me, not the guitar) it's a definite keeper.

    Out of the box it wasn't...

    Well, I've never done this before, but it's going back. Major bummer. :(

    I just got it today and checked it out a bit. The jury's still out but I can say that this one is much worse out of the box than other Sterlings I've bought before. I'm still messing with it though...

    It's now showing out for delivery so I'll be posting a NGD thread about it once I get it, check it out, take photos, etc., so look for that.

    Well, I have a few things planned, as I do with all my guitars. Even the Silhouettes I had. For this one I will be adding locking tuners and piezo saddles for acoustic tones along with a...

    I ordered the mint green. If that one is as good as I hope, once I get it modded I may look into getting a pink one too for alternate tunings or whatever. :)

    Personally, I would love nothing more than for EBMM to release a similar guitar with the quality and reputation of EBMM guitars. I actually had two EBMM Silhouettes at different times but ultimately...

    To me it's simply comfortability. With shorter fingers it's easier to reach fret spacings lower on the neck and it's not a short enough scale with regard to fret distances for most people with small...

    I'm pretty sure this would have a slightly smaller body than a standard 25.5" Cutlass. It will be interesting to see, should be here on Friday.
  24. I ordered one just now. :D

    I ordered one just now. :D
  25. Finally ... A Short-Scale Guitar I Like! (Haven't Played Yet Though.)

    Just today I saw what I've been looking for. Or at least I hope so! I've been looking a very long time for a 24" scale guitar with a 2-point trem, and SBMM is now offering one. Happy dance time!

    I...
