Well appointed and great fun

Despite its awful name, the Cort Rithimic bass is very well appointed – Babicz Bridge, Hipshot tuners and Bartolini pickups, you almost feel it’s worth its price tag in parts alone!

The distinctive body veneering may not be to everyone’s taste (I’m not sure it’s to mine) but there’s a very capable and enjoyable bass behind the gizmos and decoration.

The body shape, headstock and neck profile are clearly Jazz bass inspired, but where I’ve found the Jazz neck a bit fiddly, the Rithimic neck is nothing but fast, comfortable and great fun to play. My “regular” bass (a Frankenstein affair of bits and pieces from here there and everywhere) weighs a ton and this bass is refreshingly light by comparison, but doesn’t seem to suffer tone-wise as a result.

Talking of tone, I love the way the bridge pickup sounds on this bass but whether you agree will probably depend upon whether or not you like the Bartolini sound. I find the neck pickup less useful – a bit too boomy for my liking, I’d have preferred it to be a bit closer to the bridge – and with both going you get that phase-ey sound you get from a Jazz when both pickups are active. To be honest not a sound I really like, but it may suit your tastes perfectly.

The service from Richard’s was exemplary – excellent communications, helpful to a fault and the set-up was perfect. I’m so glad I decided to buy from Richard’s and not elsewhere.

I’m absolutely delighted with everything about this bass and the buying experience. The bass itself may not be the most flexible tone-wise, but I can easily get a tone I love and it is so much fun to play my playing has already improved immeasurably!
