    Well, here's another bass I'm listing.
    This one's a Cort Arona 5 in Brown burst. I can't say that I've ever seen one listed used yet.
    This is a wonderful bass that's both punchy and very articulate. It's only been played a few times here at home.
    It's basically new, with the plastic still on the preamp cover.
    Weighs about 8 pounds.
    Adjustable string spacing up to 19mm.
    The neck is super comfy, very thin front to back. Even thinner than my SB5000.
    Preamp is active vol, blend, bass, treble with volume pull for passive.
    The passive tone is great!
    There's just a very little bit of shine near the g-string from my nuckle rubbing. You can see it in one of the close ups.
    $400 shipped to the lower 48 with a nice gigbag.
    Here's the link:

    Please let me know if you have any questions.
    Thanks for looking

    These basses really look cool, like a Korean Sandberg! Wish I had the extra dough to take it off your hands.

    So light and comfy,
    but deep and punchy.
    The B string on this bass is the real deal.
    I know someone out there is curious. :ninja:

    I guess you could say I'm one if those curious people......;)

    What is the fret board radius like? And any idea what the body wood is?

    The radius is 15 3/4". It's pretty flat.
    The body is swamp ash and the neck is three piece maple with a rosewood board.
    It plays effortlessly. :)

    These newer Cort basses s are seriously impressing me. I remember when the band was associated with junk and beginners instruments

    Yeah. There is nothing cheap or beginner about this bass. I'd really love to hold on to it.
    When I picked up one of their RB5s (Elrick design) a few years back, I realized they were doing something right.
    I'm sure the fact that they make some of the well known brand's import lines, proves that to be true.
    I really think they are!

    I own an Ibanez Roadgear 5 and this bass appears to have many of the same features. Bump for a very cool bass at a very good price

    Don't forget about me. Bump.
     
  10. Nice bass! I understand that front to back the neck is thin. What is the string spacing (from string to string) at the bridge?

    It's 19mm at the bridge, but is adjustable if needed.

    Just to put this in perspective, this is almost $200 less than I paid, plus a free gigbag.
    It's almost like you'd be making money by buying this bass. ;)
    How's that for bass logic?
