Pointlessly positive thread
This will not come as news to anybody here, I suppose, but I played my MM Cutlass on a gig last night and it sounded great. Playing blues & R&B with a 7-piece band, horn section, a room where we had to play quiet, and the Cutlass stayed in the mix all through the night — the treble bleed worked wonders. Marshall Origin 20 with a Cali76 compressor in front of it, clean, quiet and present at lower / backing volumes and then a bit of natural amp drive when you crank it for solos.
I love this guitar. Everybody in the band loves this guitar, even the other guitar player who is a hidebound traditionalist and Fender guy. Fun night.
