    Cort's Korean made A4. Namm show demo bass from early 2000's. 3 band active/passive with Bartolini MK1 soapbar p/u's. Clear coated high gloss without a mark on it. I installed Hipshot tuners with a D-tuner (take $100 off if you want the stock tuners and I keep the hipshots) Both sets included at regular price. ohsc included. Estimated Conus shipping is $50, but I'll ask you to pay the exact shipping we agree upon, fully insured. Ask any questions, this is not your average Cort bass. Outstanding finish, excellent player. I play 5's so this just sits in the closet. Looking to fund a new 5 string project. I purchased this from the Washburn rep directly back in the early 2000's- one owner. It's in my avitar. Ask any questions. in 60030

    34" scale, between 9-9.5 lbs (bathroom scale). Fretboard looks like rosewood. Stripes look like mahogany. I think the neck is maple and the wings are lightly flamed maple. Honestly I don't know the woods, I purchased it because it sounded good passive, great active and felt good. Sorry I know I don't the details that are usually really important on the forum. Not looking for trades as I'm planning to order a Sandberg VM 5 as it's replacement.

    Thank you HubbardsFate. It is a nice little bass. I don't play it much but I recorded a clip for an interested party the other day. If I wasn't after a VM5 I'd keep the bass.

    I've seen some way more recent Corts that I have kinda been lusting for, and had been under the impression they'd upped their game in recent years, but you say this one is from the early 2000s, so it seems like they've been making higher-quality instruments longer than I thought...

    I love the headstock on that bass too! :cool:

    Yeah, I had a shot at getting the 4,5&6 string from this Namm show. I only needed a 4, but in hindsight I should have grabbed all 3. I don't know about their other instruments from this era, but this one is smokin. Part of the reason I haven't dropped the price is that I'm not excited about letting it go. More of a means to an end. Thanks though for posting. It's a cool bass.

    Don't let the wacky bridge deter you. They actually work well (I have one on my Artisan B4FL) once you figure them out. GLWTS!

    Thank Monet! If you can dig, it was well set up when I received it, and I've never touched it. My other bass requires regular adjustment, but this one is rock steady.

    Final price adjustment $650 delivered free in the conus. $600 picked up - will drive up to 1 hour to meet. I've had a few offers, but I wanted to be straight up and remove my negotiation room. Itching to get my new bass ordered.
