Hey there, Just wondering what the general consensus on Corts was? I'm talking in the beginner - intermediate catergory (or high end if they have some up there - I dont know.) Cause this is my first bass pictured below and I've had it for ~ 3 years. Cost me $800 NZ, so maybe $500 US. Has two band active eq. A really close action, smooth as to play. And to my ears has a nice tone, and it has been complimented on. (I play through a laney rbw300 combo) And besides all that I think its got the best shape of a lot of basses. Was thinking of upgrading but every bass I play in my price range (~$1500 NZ - $800-$1000 US) doesnt compare. All seem to be quite 'clunky' in the action. Bear in mind though, that in NZ we get the main manufacturers, ie ibbys, fenders etc and not much smaller boutique brands. Is it just because I've learnt on this that I find it so nice to play or is it possible that Cort actually make nice basses? Thanks for the input.
