Oh my goodness.  What are Cort up to?  Whilst their guitars have impressed me for 18 years they seem to be going through a sweet spot at the moment for producing guitars which are simply incredible.

This is one of them.  If you want a Les Paul style instrument with its own personality and different enough to be considered its own "person" then this is Les Paul "inspired" guitar for you!!!

On every level it is just jaw dropping....

Headstock design - love it!! Classy, stylish and works for me.

Finishing details - second to none as always

Machine Heads - Vintage Klusons - look fantastic and they do what they are supposed to!

Pickups - The finest Seymour Duncans you can buy.  the SH1 "'59" & SH4 "Jeff Beck" pickup configuration is a classic setup which even Seymour Duncan themselves would recommend you if you want a full on classic rock tone.

I would say the body is mildly slimmer than a Gibson which feels really comfortable and the lower horn has a sharper edge ensuring they keep Gibson at bay with their law suits!!

Welcome to the new kid on the block - Of course Burny win on "copy cat similarity" but the Cort is without question the pick for me in terms of general playing appeal - and I didn't think I would ever say that over a Burny!

Thank you Cort for listening to people like me and producing not just great built instruments but instruments that players can identify with too.
