Little bit about Cort...


History (taken from Wikipedia, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cort_Guitars)

Quote:
Jack Westheimer set up business connections with Japanese guitar makers in the 1960s with the intention of importing Japanese made guitars into America. Some of the many brands that Jack Westheimer is associated with were Teisco, Cortez, Pearl, Silvertone, Kingston, Cort and many others. In 1973, Jack Westheimer founded the Yoo-Ah company (“you-and-I”) in South Korea with Yung H. Park as a business partner. The Yoo-Ah company would eventually be called Cor-Tek which was named after Jack Westheimer's Cortez brand name. Yung H. Park eventually acquired the operations of the Cor-Tek company. Cor-Tek manufactures Cort branded guitars as well as engaging in OEM manufacturing for numerous brands.




Things you should know



Cort is the largest guitar manufacturer of the world. They aim to build the best guitars, with the best woods available (even if it is a cheap wood, i can assure you its a good quality wood). Brands such as Jackson, Ibanez, ESP/LTD, these guitars were made by Cort factories, which later are sold to the big companies. So, next time, think a little bit, because you might be playing a Cort guitar

Currently got an '80's Cort Performer Series double cut, set neck, h/s/s, 3 toggle switch, floyd rose. It's waiting for brand new EMG pickups and also an OFR to be fitted which should be done by Christmas hopefully. Oh and I love the Cort M600T that guitar is secks besides the ****ty control layout which bugs me on all the M series guitars.

I like the look of the blue M600T, tremolo one. Anyone know if it has a maple cap under the flamed veneer?

I think its a good idea you made this thread. For the price their great guitars. I wish the K and Z series had more fixed bridge options. Reminds me of Charvel.
