  • Both pickups are manufactured by Cort and are used on Cort electric guitars & Basses. The main difference between the two pickups is in the magnet. The MightyMite pickups use the Alnico 5 magnet for a clearer and mellower tone. In contrast, the PowerSound pickups use the ferrite ceramic magnets for a thicker and raw-sounding tone.
  • Some Cort models have coil split system which gives you both Humbucker and single coil sound with 4 countuctor Humbucker PU and both Push Pull or mini toggle. Basically, the coil-split cuts out one of the coils on a dual-coil humbucking pickup and converts it to a single-coil pickup.
  • The Luthite material was developed by our New Materials Development Department wich is not wood. It is a composite material that mimics the sonic characteristics of wood. It has a certain tonal character since it's composite, but that composite character may be desirable for certain kinds of sounds. The dominant sonic character of Luthite can be described as powerful, focused, punchy, and very clear. This is ideal for slapping and popping on the bass, which is what the Curbow excels at. Plus, Luthite is very light in weight as well.
  • Main fuction of this switch is readjusting the EQ contour to transform the tone of the bass to ideally suit for the slapping and popping. Although it's possible to do this with standard EQ control knobs, this switch allows to change the mode very quickly without delaying.

    But If you are not sure about the causes or you are not confident about what to do about the problems outlined above, it's best to consult a professional guitar technician at an authorized Cort dealer.
  • We have been using D'Addario 80/20 bronze strings for many years. While strings are a matter of personal preference. It?'s as easy as changing strings to try for yourself and see where your taste lies. The dreadnoughts and jumbos are all fine with medium or light gauge strings. But small-bodied guitars are braced lightly. So, small-bodied guitars are not suited for medium gauge strings. Use of medium gauges can damage your guitar top.
  • We want to recommend you not to use the 'polish?' on a satin finish guitars. Use a cotton cloth slightly moistened with water to wipe and clean the body and neck. I don't advise using too much wax or guitar polish. And moisture should never be used in non-finish areas, like fingerboard and bridge. Avoid polishes containing abrasives, wax, or silicone. There are some questions about silicone and the effect it has on all finishes. We do not believe that silicone will cause any direct damage to our gloss finish.
  • We have one type of wrench. L-shaped Allen wrenches are using, and the diameter is 4mm. (caution: not 3/16")
  • Simply, you can hang your strap on neck. It does no harms to the neck of your instrument to tie the strap on the paghead. The most popular location for a strap button is in the treble side heel of the neck down. Be sure to pre-drill the strap button hole, and the strap draws perpendicular to the button and it's very secure indeed. You can put the strap button directly in the heel cap. It's the easiest area to touch up if you remove the button later. Drill a pilot hole for my strap button screw. We strongly recommend the strap button be installed by an repair person.
