You don't often see me going out of my way to promote bass guitars - PURELY because my main passion is acoustic and electric but over the 18 years in the trade I have found it fascinating talking to bass players about what they do and don't like from a bass guitar - That possibly is a whole blog in its own right but for now I will keep things specific to Cort and namely this bass - The Artisan A4....
The Cort A4 is the flagship bass in the Cort range - a bass guitar that has been making bass players jaws drop and ears tingle for many a year so I thought it was about time I took some photos and gave it the profile it deserves.
As with all Cort guitars the build quality is stunning but people FAR more immersed in the actual playing of bass guitars than myself have been raving not only about the build quality, stunning looks and feel of this guitar but the total specification - the total package. Bartoloni active pickups with EQ on/off switch, hipshot tuners, thru neck, hipshot bridge - the list goes on.
Why a bass player would ever need to pay a penny more for a bass guitar than this I would never know - but then... ok - I am not entirely a bass player but I know a man who is.... MANY in fact as you can imagine over the years and they all agree this guitar would be amazing at £1000 let alone ... £539!!!! The one failing this bass has is they have priced it too cheap - you just won't believe that it can be good as I am saying but PLEASE believe me - there is NO catch.
The Artisan A4 bass features neck-thru construction for superior tone and string vibration transfer.
The A4 features Bartolini MK-1 pickups and MK-1 EQ which produce an organic "piano" type tone.
