    Tempting. Very tempting. Too bad I'm not in a Kiss tribute or metal band. I don't think those basses can play country music. ;)

    Thank you for your indulgence,

    Either I am way out of touch with my used Cort prices or that guy is. I don't see those basses selling at those prices any time soon, particularly on CL.

    The street prices on the Cort versions of these basses has gone up about $200 since they were discontinued. I have been seeing them on ebay fairly regularly in the $700s. I think $1100 is a bit of a stretch.

    I got lucky and found my Cort Axe bass hanging in a pawn shop for $150. It ain't mint, but the price was right for a bass I may use twice a year.

  8. Sez Hoo LOL! Back in my 6-string days, I had a black Kramer Explorer thingee that I'd pull out quite often. Triple humbuckers, Floyd Rose, thru a Bassman/Marshall halfstack, no problem! Of course it was black and I kinda blended in with the whole black backline so YMMV ;)

    Well, there is a guy around here who plays old school country using a pointy bright red Kramer bass...so I think Cliff could probably get away with an Axe...

    C'mon, Cliffy!
    Think about it...a nice new shiny black "edgy" bass to play with Kelly and Arnie to go along with your spiffy new haircut! You'd be the talk of the town!
