Mojo’s Music is a proud member of the Ernie Ball Music Man’s Premier Dealer Network and this allows us to bring this stunning guitar to you.  This amazing looking Ernie Ball Cutlass SSS BFR Malibu Gold is part of the Ball Family Reserve collection and is one of only 44 guitars.

You will find no nicer guitar on the face of this planet.  Ernie Ball builders and engineers take Leo Fender’s designs and build them with an elegant perfection.  This guitar speaks with authority before you even plug it in.  The body combined with the Roasted neck gives a snap that is unsurpassed.  Add the custom wound ’60s style single coil pickups and you will find a guitar that has bell-like chime and thanks to the “Silent Circuit”, you will do so in a totally noiseless fashion.

GOLD HARDWARE: Locking tuners, tremolo, truss rod adjustment, and input jack are accented with beautiful gold plating

ROASTED MAPLE NECK WITH WHITE BINDING: Figured, roasted maple neck with rosewood is accented with white position markers and matching white binding

EXCLUSIVE GOLD METALLIC FINISH: Lightweight alder body is finished with an exclusive Malibu Gold finish
