NBD - Cort Action Jr. for the short scale collection
Saw this Cort Action Jr. bass posted locally including a patch cord for $80 yesterday. I need another short scale like a hole in the head, but I did some research on TB, found almost universally good reviews and just could not pass it up.
The bass turned out to be in very good shape, save for needing a significant neck adjustment and new strings. Did a basic setup when I got home, adjusted the neck... the strings will have to wait for now.
First impressions are very good. The bass is light, looks good, neck is fast and it fits in a regular guitar gig bag or case with room to spare. It's even shorter than my Jay Turser mini bass, although not quite as light.
Despite the strings the tone is very impressive. The pickup output is notably lower than my other short scales but that could be pickup height and the strings. I'll play around with it and report back.
Here's a pic of the new addition beside my hopped up Bronco. I may have to do a full family photo of the entire short scale collection sometime.
Cool little bass!
my first 5'er was a cort action 5, was an awesome bass. fit, finish, and feel were all top notch. pickups were weak as hell and needed replacing, this was back when i first started playing bass, didn't know you could change pickups, so i sold it.
