I always wanted to try one of these out. I did, and now it's time to pass it along to someone who'll use it more. These are AMAZING basses for the money, just great quality and great sounding. They have a really good slap sound and nice articulate finger tone. Body: Light swamp ash with figured maple top Neck: Maple/Rosewood, 35" scale Bartolini MK-1 pickups / preamp. 3 band eq with bypass available. Model details at: http://www.cort.com/endorse/joshpaul/index.html Detailed specs at: http://www.cort.com/endorse/joshpaul/specs/jps5.html Bigger pics at http://home.earthlink.net/~davidmwilson/cort/ List is $1200-$1300, and they don't come with gig bags new. I'm looking for $500 shipped in lower 48 with a gig bag included. No trades please.
