  5. I've been playing a cort B5 for about 2-3 years now. PM and i can tell you more, I don't have time at the moment.

  6. We have one of the B4's at the guitar shop where I work, and I'm constantly amazed that it's stayed on the wall for as long as it has. It's a great bass. I was eyeing it for a while, but I finally just decided that I'm more of a vintage-style guy and that it wasn't for me. I do like it a lot, though.
     
  7. I've been playing my artisan b4, *b4 is the model*, and she is a beast, but I have not had the chanch to find out if she has the sustain power yet or not.
     
  8. I just recently bought a Cort Artisan B4 fretted bass and i love it. The different types of tones that you can get from it are insane. I can get a punchy cold type of tone and with just a few changes to the eq on the bass and i can get a warm smooth tone. I posted a thread about this bass before i bought it and got a lot of possitive feedback. I havent heard a bad comment about cort yet. for the money, i dont know of to many other basses that can beat the artisan B4.
     
  9. Ahmen Brotha! I could'nt have said this any better. But I need a betetr amp then a 10 watt practice amp to gett he warm tone though.

    Get the a b or c series cort basses and you will be a happy Camper I will GARINTEE IT.

    I have had a B4fl for a few years. I gig with it and it always sounds great. The Bartolini MK1 pickup/pre is amazing, very full and solid.

    B4 fretless is an amazing bass for the money.

    I bought the fretless first, then was so impressed that I bought another fretted B4 too, gigged them a couple times.

    great great sound, looks quite good too

    Ok, well what about this. My "bread and butter" is a active Warwick Corvette w/ Aero type 1 pups. Oh, and she's a 4 banger ;) The two tones won't be two totally drastic will they?? Different is good, but polar opposite is not good. I should be able to eq it to achieve what I need, no????

    I must admit; I’ve never thought much of Cort guitars/basses. But lately there has been such a buzz going on about Cort (this thread included) I thought I’d look into them. Wow, quite impressive. The B5 has caught my eye and I was wondering about string spacing. The Cort A and B series looks like a contemporary of the Ibanez SR505BM (lam neck, mahogany body, Bart pickups, etc.). Now I’ve tried the Ibanez SR505 and the SR905 and I think they are pretty kick-butt basses at a pretty decent price. But even the higher end SR basses tend to be a bit too snug for my tastes. How does the string spacing of the Cort A and B series basses compare to the mid and high-end Ibanez SR series?

    Thanks,
