I stopped in on a little ole music store out in the stix.....dusty little shop it was. Most of the inventory in there was old stock that had been sitting in there forever. It smelled like an attic in there. There were no other customers in there but me. Anyway, he had a few basses over in the corner that caught my eye. These were Cort basses..... two 6 stringers. They had the word 'Artisan' series on them. One of them had the word 'custom' on the fretboard. On the pickups was the word 'MightyMite' I could tell they had been sitting in the shop for several years. Obviously no one in this small town cared for a 6 string bass....so they never sold. I was surprised by the quality!!! A solid piece of wood! Nice string action! They didn't look at all like cheap basses. Yea I was impressed. Plugged them in to an Eden NA120 combo he had in there and they sounded as good as they looked. I had always thought of Cort as a low end guitar maker. I didn't know much about their basses. There was a price tag on each of them. I think the original price was something like a gran, but it was marked thru and another lower price was written on there....something like 600 bucks. I think he just wanted to get rid of them. He told me to make him an offer....as if to suggest he'd take a few hundred bucks...maybe 4 or 5 hundred?? Anyone know anything about these and what should I pay if I go back in there??
