I've always ignored Cort Curbows (hey, they're Corts, right?), but sat down with a fretted four for an hour today at a store that I usually don't frequent. I have to say I was very impressed! The tone was good and versatile, the weight was great, the neck was fast, the fretboard was phenomenal, and I really like the look. The Barts are sweet. The wankers there wanted $550 "on sale" (snark), but I see you can buy one set up and signed by Greg Curbow direct for $400. Tempting, very tempting...let's see, what can I sell? (On edit) How does that burl finish look in real life? The pics are mouthwatering!
