    Awesome-this bass was made in Korea by the Cort craftsmen who made the Korean Lakland Skyline and Ibanez Prestige Basses, and it shows! In fantastic, hardly played condition. Beautiful neck-through construction and gorgeous flat natural finish. Bartolini MK1 pickups and preamp with no mods. Electronics work 100% with no scratchy controls or issues . No fret wear. The frets are shiny and the rosewood fretboard looks great. Truss rod is fine. Hipshot ultralite tuners. It has recessed Dunlop Straplocks. Strap attachments included. Weighs exactly 9 pounds. Sounds FANTASTIC! Ships in a Warwick premium Rockcase. Nicely set up with fresh strings. $450 shipped in CONUS. PM your email address and I will send a Paypal invoice. Check out my stellar TB feedback!

    The versatility and craftsmanship of these "budget" basses can not be overstated. $475 is an absolute steal. I played one of these at a gig on another bassist's recommendation and now I'm a Cort beleiver. GLWTS!!

    Warwick premium bag in good shape included. This is the nice one with 30mm of padding.

    Scale length? String spacing?

    The Cort A5 is a 34 inch scale bass. The string spacing at the bridge is about 16mm.
