    "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."

    Bout time but my god this looks disappointing.

    The EBMM version wasn't the most visually inspiring with the burl imho the obvious visual downgrade that comes with the Sterling versions does not do this model any favours. Don't get me wrong there are great looking Sterlings, but the cheap burl the dry looking rosewood...:barf:

    A solid colour option would be cool on this I think, plenty nice solid finishes from Sterling.

    On the bright side if you detest burl then that rules out GAS for countless instruments.

    Don't get me wrong, I think the EBMM guitars are overpriced (especially in Canada with our weak dollar) but Sterling looks like they're going out of there way to make them seem worth the money.

    IDK why they would update the rest of the line with Stainless steel frets, and not put them on this unless,it was by Jason's request. Unless it actually does, its not listed as such currently.

    Normally I am not a big fan of the whole burl thing, but I always liked the Jason EBMM, on those i found it quite classy.

    Cool for Jason as well that he gets a sterling sig as well!

    Something about the Cutlass body as a 7 just doesn't seem right to me. It looks too...bulbous? My suspicions were confirmed when I tried the EBMM version in the store. The body just felt too clunky.

    It's unfortunate that JR's favorite guitars just happen to already be someone else's signature. The burl on his EBMM JP is s e x y. :lol:
