    I have seen a wide range of prices, from around $300 to $600 (marsmusic.com). Does anyone know the average store price for a new Cort Curbow 6 string? I'm going to try to find one in a store this weekend, but they seem rare in these parts. Thanks.

    Well, the normal price is around $560 in some shops for a standard (Blue and Red) finish.
    I bought mine for $440, snjfu got his for $420 .
    Look at Ebay.. There is one right now in auction.

    The best part is that the electronics are Korean-made but custom designed by Greg Curbow, and the Pickup is custom designed staggered coil, designed by Bill Bartolini and Greg Curbow.

    Are those Bartolinis standard for the 6 string? I thought they had MightyMites or something.
     
  6. I think the 6 has a Bartolini pickup and a Mighty Mite preamp.. while the 4 and 5 have Mighty Mite pickup and preamp.

    Actually the preamp is not a Mighty Mite..
    It is custom designed by Greg Curbow, and built by Mighty Mite.
    Yes. The 6 String comes stock with a Bartolini Custom Staggered coil.

    Thanks everyone. Now I have to find one around here. I don't think I could buy it mail order or via the internet: I have to try it first.
