    Here's my Cort Curbow Retro:

    I've got a mirror pickguard and truss rod cover on the way for it, and a set of Thomastik Infeld Superalloy strings ready to go. :bassist:

    It certainly isn't going to be :ninja:.
     
  4. Neat looking "retro", really, but how is this even remotely a Curbow beyond the headstock again???

    Um...because it was designed by Greg Curbow. That's how.

    Is the Cort Curbow a decent bass for fingerstyle as well as slapping?

    It's definitely a sexy bass, but I dont like the fact that its made with luthite :scowl:
     
  9. I Have a Cort B5. i'll get some up soon !
     
  10. Walnut-stained Cort Action with Barts.

    I once had impure thoughts. Oh, and I pluck my ear hair.
    The luthite turned me off as well and I ended up trading mine. I really liked the way it played and I thought the construction was good, but I just couldn't get past what i thought was a rather thin tone.

    You mean the bass designed by Elrick looks like an Elrick? I'm sure he'll be glad to hear that. :D

    Well they never said "cort ELRICK" they said, the sig, thing. If it said Elrick i wouldnt have been so, yea.

    as quoted from the Blue Collar Tour

    'alchohol was involved, get off me'.
     
  17. seeing as the curbow stuff is alt-materials, is Curbow "using" Cort to test new ideas without having to invest a whole lot of R&D, now that he's perfected his "rockwood" stuff for the high-dollar basses?

    Just trying to figger out what the relationship between the two is.

    Well, the Cort Retro is not made of Luthite--it's agathis. And, it's based on a design that he did a while back for his high end basses.

    I forget how he got hooked up with Cort, honestly. But, I'm pretty sure that it's just a designer/manufacturer relationship the same as Elrick has with Cort, and Conklin has with Cort for the GrooveTools line.

    What can I say? I see all. I know all. That missing sock you're looking for? Behind the couch. You can thank me later.
    :ninja:
     
  20. I had no idea Cort made the groove tools. I've been very impressed with the work on those.

    And to think I could have gone thru life with two socked feet if I were only a little more thorough...

    (I only own two socks)
