I was in the Guitar Center today checking out that infamous petitie "high tech" Cort Curbow 4. Couldnt hear much with all the noise in the store, but its tempting to buy one just for the looks. I guessing these sound a bit sterile, sort of like Modulus but not quite. Do they sound near as good as they look? Had anyone modified these to get some decent sounds? The theory is as a backup but sometimes gig instrument.
