Last year at NAMM 2019, shred master JASON RICHARDSON (Born of Osiris, Chelsea Grin, All That Remains, etc.) showcased his new Music Man signature guitar. Turns out, the world wanted “anotha one” – and perhaps at a more affordable price. Typically the Sterling by Music Man instruments will give you the same badass shred factor without breaking the bank.

“The long awaited Jason Richardson 7-String Cutlass has finally arrived — engineered specifically to meet the demands of Jason Richardson’s technique, the ‘Richardson7’ features a custom contoured lower horn for fret access, roasted maple neck with rosewood fretboard, and highly figured Poplar Burl top. It offers high output Sterling by Music Man designed humbuckers, a 12dB “PushPush” volume boost, coil-tap “Push-Push” tone control, and Modern Tremolo. Available in Natural Poplar Burst.”
