ALBERT LEE AL40P
Introducing the 2023 Albert Lee, now updated for superior versatility and balance. Designed with a retro offset body shape, the Albert Lee AL40P is constructed with a lightweight poplar body, smooth roasted maple neck, and vintage tremolo. Throw in some dual P90 pickups for a perfect blend of brightness and warmth, and you’ve got the best of both worlds from your guitar’s tone. This revamped model is available in Sherwood Green and Vintage Cream for 2023.
CUTLASS CT50 PLUS
The Cutlass just got taken to the next level. The CT50HSS Plus jam packs even more features into this modern classic. On top of its roasted maple neck, locking tuners, and vintage tremolo, the CT50HSS Plus adds all-new Modern HSS pickups, boasting an extra punch, as well as a push-push mid boost control and white pearloid block inlays for added flare. It’s the perfect all-in-one workhorse for any modern player. These guitars are available in Chalk and Aqua Grey.
ST. VINCENT GOLDIE
Meet Goldie, the latest St. Vincent signature guitar. All new for 2023, Goldie features a nyatoh body and a roasted maple neck with a reverse headstock. A trio of gold foil mini humbucker pickups and 5-way switching offer a unique range of tonal options while familiar favorites, including custom inlays, locking tuners, and control knobs are an ode to the original award-winning St. Vincent signature guitar design. The Goldie is ready to deliver a bright and bold tone in one genre-bending package. New to the Sterling by Music Man roster for 2023, these are available in Velveteen and Cashmere.
The Valentine Collection is known for effortlessly combining the best of iconic guitar features into the perfect package, and the newest installation in the legacy is no different. The 2023 Valentine stays true to the original specs that made it stand out — White Ash slab body, 12dB push-push boost, roasted maple neck, and locking tuners — while elevating and innovating. This guitar truly shines with its new chambered construction and an F hole to achieve that semi-hollow tone. The Valentine Chambered is available in Butterscotch with a Tune-o-matic bridge and Bigsby tailpiece, and in Natural with a hardtail and vintage bent saddle.
Designed in collaboration with Omar Rodríguez-López, the Mariposa is a true stunner. The guitar’s unique body shape is eye-catching, but there is more than meets the eye with the Mariposa. Featuring a roasted neck, locking tuners, 3-way switching, and two humbucking pickups controlled by separate volume knobs, this guitar has endless tonal options. Now available in Daphne Blue for the first time ever.
Inspired by vintage guitars but made with modern adornments, the Cutlass CT30HSS puts a timeless sound in the palm of your hands. This guitar features an HSS pickup configuration with 5-way switching, vintage style tremolo, and an oversized 4+2 headstock. Now available in Mint Green and Vintage Sunburst.
