Along with a new edition of the Mariposa, Sterling By Music Man has unveiled its lineup of models for 2021. Highlights of the announcement are as follows:

2021 Cutlass CT50

For 2021, the Cutlass CT50 now features a roasted maple neck and locking tuners, upgrades that still see the price of the model under $500. The guitar comes with a vintage-style tremolo and an oversized 4+2 headstock, offering straight string pull.  It’s also configurable with a SSS or HSS pickup arrangement, both with five-way switching.

The 2021 Cutlass CT50 comes in Toluca Lake Blue, Vintage Sunburst, Vintage Cream, Dropped Copper, Rose Gold, and Firemist Silver.

Priced at $499.99.

Jason Richardson 6 String

Sterling by Music Man's 2021 Jason Richardson models

Jason Richardson’s signature guitar, which was previously only available as a seven-string, is now open to the more traditional guitarist. The six-string model retains the contoured lower horn for easier fret access, dual humbucking pickups with coil-tap tone control, a roasted maple neck, and a poplar burl veneer top.

Priced at $1,199.99.
