Introducing the latest episode of Ernie Ball Music Man’s Inspired By Hunter Hayes: “My Wings”. Journey through this film as it highlights how 5-time Grammy nominated, singer, songwriter, and producer Hunter Hayes, channels his Ernie Ball Music Man Cutlass RS guitar to write, record, and perform as he brings his music to life.
The only true addiction I’ve ever had is music. I’ve come close on others, but that’s the only one I can’t get rid of.
I really fell in love with music when I was in middle school and I needed music, I needed songs, I needed messages.
Now in his mid-twenties, Hunter has been appearing on television and live onstage since the age of 4. His debut album “Hunter Hayes” was certified Double Platinum, producing the number one hit single “Wanted” on Billboard’s hot country charts. Proficient on more than 30 instruments, Hunter writes and records every instrument on every record. Hunter’s main instrument of choice is the Cutlass SSS RS model, which shares the stage and spotlight with him night after night.
What makes a great instrument is you don’t approach it thinking about it. Maybe it’s the right neck shape, maybe it’s that the wood is the right residence that speaks to you. The thing about this guitar is exactly that. I could play this guitar for a whole night and be completely satisfied.
The Cutlass RS
Based on the original 1970s Music Man designs, the 2018 Cutlass RS has been re-engineered to deliver unparalleled playability and performance featuring a brand new premium roasted figured maple neck with ebony, rosewood or maple fingerboard. The Cutlass delivers classic rich tones thanks to its lightweight alder body, vintage spec electronics, and super smooth modern tremolo system. Find your Cutlass guitar on our website here.
