Got a Cort Curbow bass today. After reading some posts, decided it would be a good entry level bass for me. Called Curbow, and got to speak to Greg Curbow. He told me he had a prototype in satin red, made for the NAMN show. I had him upgrade the electronics with the "All American Bartolini Pre-Amp and Pickup". It came today, and sounds great. These pictures don't do justice to the satin finish.
