  1. whats the difference other than name and price?
  2. :help:

    Have you played any of them, you may want to and form your own opinion as the opinion here is as far as it is wide.

    A search of these forums will help you some also, but there is no substitute for playing them. :bassist:

    Actually there is absolutely no difference. They are all made by Cort in Korea.

    My empathetic is kicking in for a moment here....

    to the king:

    when I was in my first few years of playing I also thought a lot of basses were pretty much the same and didn't understand what the big deal was. some people feel that way and play one bass their entire life. truth is there are countless differences in the different basses out there, a lot of them are subtle however and wouldn't be noticed by a non musician, or someone fairly new to bass. asking a question like you did on a forum like this that is completely filled with bass obsessed geeks like myself, you're going to get pummelled however. your question was a good one. a year down the line my guess is you'll fully understand. now get yourself ready for some more sarcasm, cuz I'm sure it's coming. :)

    +1. Not being an ass but you are asking a question that should have been researched a bit before posting.

    What is the difference between a Ford, Crysler and GM? Your question is basically the same.

    As others have said, this has been done to death. I'm not sure if you're serious or just trolling, but either way, this thread is closed.
