    well...i just got a call back from the place where i was going to order my cort artisan 5 string fretless....and he says they don't make 5 string fretlesses anymore.

    that SUCKS!!!!!!!!

    so here's my question - there's a fretless one with the old mightymite pickups and stuff on - can i retrofit the bartolini stuff?

    Jason -

    I just checked with the Cort/Groove Tools distributor, and you're right, the Artisan 5 is not available as a fretless, and hasn't been for several years. Your best bet will be to get the used one you were looking at on and upgrade the electronics and pickups.

    That or...(check my sig) :D
