    Despite the title this is a thread about "should I take it back."

    I got a Cort Curbow about a month or two ago, and it I've had one previous problem with it(the neck was set to low for a fretless) and now the electronics are messed up on it. What I mean by that is, there is no more active setting, no sound comes out(and yes, I did replace the battery). Would you take it in to get it fixed(if possible) or would you just trade it in for a new(possibly different brand) bass? I'm haveing that dillema right now.

    Hi sicplayer.
    Did you spill bleach on it?? Sorry, I couldn't help that one. Take it to a tech so they can check it out. Might be an easy fix. I would definitely try to get it fixed before selling or trading, as you will get about 30 cents on the dollar on a bass that has a problem.

    No bleach that I'm aware of. :D


    My main question was to sell it or keep it even after its fixed.
     
  4. When they are set up they are very good basses. I'd keep it if it's fixible.
    How did that happen?, it's a bit weird.
    You might have a problem with your input jack.

    I don't think so, Like I said, I can play it on the passive setting(which is cool), it just kinda makes me mad that the active setting doesn't work.

    Hmn. Well, (just a thought) if you don't like it enough to contemplate selling/exchaning it, maybe you should.

    OTOH, Curbows rock...

    I love my Curbow, I don't know why I thought of selling it, it has just been giving me problems. I'm not going to unless I have to.
