    I picked up a Cort (not my favorite) in a store yesterday, i was really impressed so i bought it. Its Natural, 4 string, and has active electronics. Comments?

    Looks like a cool bass, that's the Jazz style one with blocks on the neck as well as a MM humbucker in the bridge, right?

    I got a Gb34 for my first bass, i think its fantastic versatile tone, looks good, and feels nice. Downside it is abit neck heavy. but hell can't argue for £250 with all the other gear i needed too.

    Yeah, white binding, and white block inlays, the pickups are nice, but a bit on the cheap side (the very cheap side), but for now they work just fine. The locking jack on the Cort is nice, since ive stepped on my cable 3 times now and it has yet to come out. Hipshot A style bridge, and Hipshot tuners. It's a good contrast to my Warwick.
  6. what makes you say the pups are cheap?

    They cost 25$ They sound really nice, but if i put in some new ones the bass could really put out some serious tone.
  8. ahh ok, my cort c4z has might mite pups as well and ive been thinking of swapping em out for something else, let me know if you change yours

    i don think that seymour duncan would fit, theres a single screw hole each side on the mightymite soaps.
  12. hmm good point,

    My Cort has Barts in it from the factory, but I'm not impressed with their sound. When used together with the balancer at 50/50, they sound good, but the Neck pickup has uneven response and the bridge one sound horrible with no usable tones. I'm thinking of changing them both out for Q-tuners.
  14. there bart designed, not real B A R T A L I N I

    Im talking about the humbucker in the bridge, its two screws on one side, and one on the other, so is the seymour duncan, but ive yet to try any humbucker other than my GB-74 and dozens of Music Mans
  16. ahh sorry yes, im looking at this again, ste, the gb74 isnt a soap its a mm style humbucker, the duncan would fit fine,

    The pickups that are in that Cort stock are MightyMites. I know cause I'm his friend, I was there when he bought it. It is a nice bass, but the pickups are not all that good.
