Whaddya think? They're not bad looking.
Man, those GB99's and 74's are nice! If they make the GB99 in a 5'r I may have to check that out for real!
That "burled poplar" top is awful.
But, the rest of them look OK.
scroll down on that web youll see the 5'rs
My bad. I saw those but I meant to say I like the GB99B and I'd like to see it in a 5'r.
GB75 looks stunning, with a great price to match.
GB75 does look very nice indeed. I'm not so keen on the FMT...
1+ to the burled poplar...
Nice. Even has the bound fretboard. I smell a lawsuit.
My friend is getting a Cort GB, with big block inlays, and in a blue colour.
Really? And to think I thought alot of you would be into that whole "greasy spaghetti sauce mixxed with Dawn-soap dishwater" look.
Man! That flame maple jazz with the maple board....that really looks nice. I wonder if they'll do a 5er? They look nice...
I like the GB74.
I love burled black poplar, but I'm not too keen on the stain on that one. It's much nicer when it's natural, a la Jerzy Drozd. And I hate that cartoon logo they have. Diminishes the design, I think...
I actually kinda like these.
I want the the Artisan A4.
Not from Fender. Cor-Tek ("Cort") makes Fenders and other FMIC product. All their accessories ("Mighty Mite") are Fender-licensed.
Cor-Tek manufactures some of the best-built Fender guitars.
I just got back from vacation where I stumbled into a "small town" music store . Once inside I spotted a beautiful looking 5 string bass with a beautiul finish and excellent construction that also had:-
-Flame Maple top
-A maple/Wenge laminated neck.
-Bartolini pickups and electronics
-A passive/Active switch.
-Bass, Mid, and treble controlls that all sounded very useful.
-Nice playability, though maybe a little narrow in the neck.
All this for 1/3 the price of a Stingray 5. It was a Cort Artisan 5,
(the one on the right) and I tell ya what, it was pretty darn good. It's also the first Cort bass I've ever played and it won't be the last...........
Look a lot like Fender's FMT series... I like it!
Same experience for me.
I could try a Cort Artisan B5, and I was really impressed.
Quality wise, not much of a difference with, say, an SR5.
Tone wise, it's a very different animal, though.
