Cort G290 Fat
Witnessed a review by Darrell Braun Guitar. He disassembled and played the guitar. He’s a pro and rated the guitar “shockingly good”. “If made in the US it would cost 3-4 times as much.”
From the video I agree. The only component Darrell was surprised with, in a negative way, was the use of dime size pots. The positive is that they are A pots which from my experience last a long time and don’t suffer from irregularities.
So.... this guitar is awesome!
See the review and hear the guitar in all settings. Pickups can be split (settings 2 and 4) using the inside of both pickups and the outside. From great hi-gain tones to perfectly clear, the pickups preformed well. Tuners have knarled wheels for excellent ergonomics. Wood selections were top of the line. The flame top is a thin veneer but it’s Drop Dead beautiful.
From what I see and hear the only bad thing about this guitar is that it’s not going to be released until middle of the month January next year. I’d love to buy one now.
