Excellent "Bang for buck" value. If it was lost,stolen or destroyed I would DEFINITLY replace this guitar. Not only does this guitar sound great, but it is STUNNING visually. Too bad they stopped making them. http://www.cort.com/guitars/cl_models/
Price: $500.00
Where Obtained: Pawn shop
Features:
Semi hollow mahogany body with quilted maple top.Set mahogany 22 fret neck. Rosewood fretboard with "Tree of life" inlay. HH Mightymite p/u's w/t coil tap on the tone knob and a 3-way selector switch. One volume knob. FK-1 combination bridge. 3color burst or Black cherry burst finishes (I have the Black cherry,Beautiful).
Playability:
This guitar plays very easy. The neck feels very much like a Les paul. It did take some getting used to since I have favoured Strats in the past.
Sound Quality:
This guitar's sound is the reason I bought it. It has the full sounding semi hollow "beefy" tone, but with the coil tap you also get a thinner Strat-like tone. I play it thru >BOSS TU2 Tuner>BOSS CS3 Compression/Sustainer> BOSS BD2 Blues Driver>CARVIN Nomad 50watt 1x12 tube amp (older) using Monster cables. With this setup I can get just about any tone I want for the Blues,Rock,Country and Jazz that I play.
Durability:
I wouldn't abuse this guitar much. And although it has not given me much trouble I feel that the switches and hardware are cheap and flimsy and the "gold" plating is wearing off (BFD). I did change the strap buttons to Dunlop strap locks as soon as I walked in the door with it.
