Where can I get Luthite? I can't seem to find any sources online. Does Cort have a patent on it, or is it just ridiculously difficult to find? And if it is impossible to buy as a consumer, is there an equivalent that I can get? It sounds like a reasonable alternative to wood, and I've played Luthite basses (two Ibanez, one Cort Curbow; I much preferred the Cort) that I've enjoyed. Granted, it wasn't a conventional sound (which is fine with me; I'm not interested in just making basses with conventional sounds), but I don't really understand the stigma.
