    I'm having a tough time tracking down an online dealer of Cort Curbows, or Artisans for that matter. I'm looking for a five or six-string fretless version to be particular. Anyone know of any?
     
  2. I'd try to contact Greg directly. His latest information shows a lot of custom work available, including a 6 string fretless.

    http://www.curbow.com/_cort/curbow_cort_1.htm

    I bought a fretless 5 from him about 6 months ago, and love it. He might take a little time to respond, but is usually pretty good about getting things done once you talk to him.

    Plus, he'll have the cases. The only place I know of besides him that used to sell was MarsMusic.com, but they're gone and it appears the Musicians Friend folks didn't buy the inventory.

    I have actually already visited the Curbow site, but they only showed the list price, which is far more than the average selling prices I've seen for new ones on Ebay. I'll give him an email anyway though. Thanks.
     
  4. The list for a Fretless 5 at Cort.com is $850

    I paid $570 with a case including shipping. And Greg hand signed it.

    Well, I was looking for online dealers specifically because I have a very hard time getting around. I'm legally blind which equals no driving and it's hard for me to take public transportation, and getting rides to music stores other than the few local ones isn't usually a task most people volunteer for.

    Contact Greg. I guarantee that his price will be better than anywhere else you find online for a new one.

    I'm going to call him today, in fact, so I'll tell him to keep an eye out for your email.

    If you send an email to info@curbow.com Noreen will get back to you pretty quickly.

    Try a search for them at GBase. I've seen plenty there in the past.
