I'm probbly getting a Cort Artisan A5 in the next fortnight to replace my stolen Rickenbacker. Made in Korea 5-er, neck-thru swamp ash w/bartolini mk1 pups and a bart-designed preamp. Any opinions on these? RRP $995 US, i'm getting it for Aus$1440 with case. I like it, but have only played it in the shop, and not through my amp .... i hate playing while the guys in Fender shirts play van halen licks and snigger in the background ... PS Opinions on the low B most welcome as this will be my first 5-er and i am not too well-researched in 5 strings ..
