    Due to unforseen events, not the least of which is my second child on the way, I have to sell my Corto. Beautiful Spanish Cedar, tort guard, matching chrome knobs (no chicken head), varitone switching.

    Plays fantanstic, tried a few sets of string on her and settled on Labella 760 medium scale. Those strings added a great depth and character to it's tone.
    Comes with original case and paperwork. Only played 3 shows and about 6 or so practices. She's in the same condition as when I recieved her.

    Price is 1400 via Paypal.

    These are GREAT basses -- take it from someone who owns a Cortobass that is quite similar to this one (mine is S/N 10C-210), and has a super-custom Birdsong "Double Fusion" bass being built for him. They may be lightweight, short-scale basses, but there is nothing "lightweight" about the sound you'll get from the Cortobass .... and the playability is superb!

    Free bump for a fellow Upstate New Yorker (my home area, although I have been away for decades)!

    As owner of Corto 8C-117, you would be buying an awesome bass... I would love a second one... If I was not trying to buy a house......
