Target: Beginners Value For Money: Excellent

Audiofanzine FR's review

(Originally written by Maxmin/translated from Audiofanzine FR)
Everything has been thought out...


The neck is comfortable.

The guitar's shape allows a very good acces to the upper frets.

The sound is good considering it's a budget product.

The shape of the body looks nice.


I started to play with a Line6 Spider III and I got a good sound. A very good sound (considering the guitar's price) with distortion and overdrive.

The clean sound did however reveal the instrument's limitations.


I've been using this guitar for one year. Since I didn't have a lot of money when I started out I had to learn with this budget guitar. It offers a great value for money. As a beginner I would buy it again without hesitation. It's perfect to play heavy metal but for clean sounds the pickups have a very poor performance. Even when you try to EQ the highs with the tone control, the response remains very harsh.

I still own it and I think I will make it my second guitar with a special tuning for heavy metal only. I prefer playing a higher quality guitar for everything else.

Daeth's review (This content has been automatically translated from English) " A good start"

BODY Basswood
NECK Maple
FRET 24 / Jumbo
INLAY White Dot
TUNER Die cast
BRIDGE Full Action II


I use it for daily drive connected to my iPad. It is not too heavy, shape is useful as standing than sitting. Access to acute is easy and comfortable handle.
With age mics tend to disintegrate but for this price and this practice is not very serious.


Up and down lines quietly installed on my couch X2 is perfect. I'm not particularly looking for a saw to use as I did, but I recommend this model for beginners (more focused "metal" as my first guitar, a squier)
the highs are not too bad with time pickups have taken a hit, severe drafts are


I bought this guitar in 2006 and I use it regularly since. Lightweight, comfortable in hand, it's my driving guitar can stay in my living room on his foot. And of good quality for a cheap price, I would do this choice

arthur1999's review (This content has been automatically translated from English) " A very good guitar to start"

The Cort X-2 is a Korean guitar With classic trestle team vibrato
There are 24 frets, two humbuckers (without names).


Handle a very pleasant, a bit heavy and fairly easy access to the treble.


With this guitar you can play both a slash from metallica ...


I use it for 3 and it suits me very well! I remake that choice without any problem.

Anonymous 's review (This content has been automatically translated from English) " Nice for beginners"

This is a guitar with two humbuckers Korean no name, a classic vibrato and a handle 24 cases.
An earlier opinion indicates that it is equipped with jumbo frets but it's obviously not the case on an instrument to less than 200 euros.


The handle is correct, the frets do not exceed the sides as is the case on some models, but obviously it's a little lottery at this level on entry-cort. The shape of the instrument is ergonomically against the weight is not negligible (closest to the weight of a Les Paul than a stratocaster).

The vibrato is unusable (detuning immediately regardless of the intensity of use) but it's not a surprise on the entry.


The sound is very loud and aggressive (especially bridge pickup), you do not use it for the garage rock or metal filthy.


It was my first guitar, it was quite the case at the time, we must admit that my technique does not require a more upmarket instrument ^ ^.

For the price I think its flaws are easily forgivable, evidence, many guitarists start on this model without keeping a bad memory by then, it's always fun to play the "metallic" with a guitar when aggressive starts the instrument.

The value for money is still well above what is found in entry-level brands such as Epiphone or Squier.

valemtymes's review (This content has been automatically translated from English)

In which country was it made? (USA, Japan, Mexico, France ...) is made in Korea

What type of bridge (Floyd, Wilkinson ...)? the chavalet chavalet is a full action 2

How many frets, what kind of microphone and their configuration: power sound pickups 24 frets (I change)
What are the settings (volume, tone, micro switch ...)? one volume one tone selecteu 3 positions


the neck is very thin the access to acute exellent nothing wrong. In terms of weight is light enough guitar violin making is pretty good is obtained by seeking out a good sound yes


yes it fits my style of music with the changes that I brought him (for a change of pickups seymour duncan) I have a very good sustain a sound fat enough. My amp is mg10cd u = (and I have a BOSS pedal DS2 BOSS CS3 BOSS CH1) I prefer the guitar with the bridge pickup tone and hair


I use it for 2 years. I now have a Fender Stratocaster. I love the sound and hestetique value for money is unbeatable I would do this election seriously
Revanation 09/12/2009

Revanation's review (This content has been automatically translated from English)

- Made in Asia
- 24 frets, jumbo frets
- 2 humbucker pickups
- A vibrato
- 1 volume knob, 1 tone knob
- Switch 3 positions

My only negative points:
- 2 knobs is a bit tight for the settings.
- The varnish is ... ugh. It leaves fingerprints every time you touches the guitar. I totally renconcé to clean and scratch for my next one is dull.


Fine to use until now.
Access to acute is easy and the handle is fairly flat, which is more for speed but a disadvantage if you want then move on LP sleeves from tree trunk.
The guitar has a reasonable weight and can play up a good time.

This guitar does not tune all that much and with the vibrato either, despite some (though I play with light)
It can not be said of the jack. I live with one of the game, I tighten the (once)


For trying - in the same price range - a few more shovels of other brands / Cort (for the G210 does not mention), I can say that this scratching sounds great for its price.
The pickups have the punch (although the bridge is way too nasal in clean) and doubles are felt with the distortion: <a class="nounderline" href=""></a> with equalization and micro V gives a super sharp thrash her.

Cons: The tone knob cut / low level makes her a very ugly cotton.


I use it for almost two years and I think it's going to last for a while.

I bought this guitar on the net, without testing first (anyway, I could not play at the time) but I do not regret my choice.
It is more equivalent models, even more expensive.

In hindsight, I would do this choice. The price / quality ratio is good, the playing comfort it offers is amazing and it sounds a lot (to consider: When the guitar starts, it almost does not distinguish good / bad sound. More if you do not try in-store SG Les Paul and others to € 2000, you can be satisfied for long.)

Skabat's review (This content has been automatically translated from English)

Yeah, I think says it all ^ ^

Personal I love the 24 cases, the hyper-sleeved comfortable, 2 double pickups.


- The handle is it fun?
J'vien just to say, the handle is super-nice!

- Access to acute (recent freight) is it easy?
Absolutely. for solos, it's nickel.

- Ergonomics is it good (in terms of shape, weight ...)?
form, each his own of course ^ ^
weight, light enough and comfortable.

- Gets it easy to sound good? ...
yes, I play on a 10W amp rotten and I have a great sound distortion (with a metal zone).
I tried it on a peavey 100W AC moves to the big riff ^ ^

In his clear, it's going, I find not bad at all. You can have a wide range between the microphones and tone, between his very acute, or slamming his grave and softened.


- They are suitable to your style of music?
you can play all yes. I play myself mainly Rock, Punk, Metal, but also blues, reggae, ska, ...
It is very versatile, even if it is doing particularly well filled with large disto ^ ^
- With what (s) amplifier (s) or effect (s) do you play?
an amplifier with a 10W unknown brand, disto-metal zone, ibanez overdrive sometimes.

- What are the sounds you prefer, you hate?
harmonics are very affordable. (Of course in micro serious only need a little bush is not for ^ ^)

j'met 9 because it's not perfect, but that price, you can hardly do better!


- How long have you use it?
1 ½

- What is so special that you like most and least?
The +: vibrato, a must, better than a floyd ranges from € 400 from Ibanez (I tested), the guitar not Disagree with hair even in the most extreme situations (I love playing harmonics and the guitar up by not taking as vibrato, like Herman Lee (Dragonforce))

The -: the varnish takes fingerprints and poucière ...

- Have you tried many other models before buying it?
a-a ...

- How would you rate the quality / price?

- With experience, you do again this choice? ...
Yes, for that price, do not hesitate ^ ^
I am personally very happy.

c-buck's review (This content has been automatically translated from English)

See below ...


For me, the handle is plutt enjoyable, despite a slight lack of "sweetness" that I met on a fender of the same type.
Access in acute is perfect. The sound is trs correct (at least with the amps I've tried, no problem!), Whether it's bright or saturated trs enjoyable.
The shape is nice enough original and makes it more comfortable than some guitars.
Personally I find it a bit heavy, because after two hours of standing (concert or other) you start to feel it on the shoulder, and I think also that it is not the trs trs well Agreement ...

Nevertheless, use is generally enjoyable and friendly.


For what I play (rock, pop, grunge see a little hard), the sound is trs correct. With a good amp, capable, and gives us the impression of being mini-Hendrix (not just non j'exagre).
With my Line 6 Spider III amp all trs is correct (especially since it's my Premire guitar, I'm home!).
The rglages can get almost anything you want. Mtal lovers, I think, must be served. May be a bit too much, because the sound is always well saturated Submitted trs, and may be the "mdium" sound in "fat" is not found sufficient ... I do my m'enfin the difficult.
In any case, even if I do not have much choice "mdium" I find the sound is not bad at all and even when I am satisfied with the shot of my X2.


Finally, I recently prs a year and a half this guitar, and I'm pretty satisfied!

Aesthetics Jolie with her as "dynamic", and trs cool black even if it is messy trs (plus I'm manic).
Even if it dsaccorde often use that I do and I find it a bit heavy (APRS I must prcise that since I changed a strap is much better ...), so enjoyable even when it is used, the boxes are open, the sound is good rev and is versatile enough.

Premire for my guitar, she did not due.

I did a little comparison with the guitar from a friend: his is far less attractive, the sound is worse. Certainly it is more comfortable (more lgre particular), but ...

I do not regret that choice even when and if I were advising a guitar, I think I could recommend it.
metal_massacre 06/09/2008

metal_massacre's review (This content has been automatically translated from English)

-Basswood body
-2 Powersound pickups (humbucker)
3-position switch + 1 volume + 1 tone knob that crackles
24-fret maple neck with rosewood in touch
Vibrato-full action: something that is useless on this guitar. I blocked as soon as I got the guitar because he Disagree over nothing.
Rotten-string (quickly replaced by the Dean Markley Blue Steel 10/46)

Tone that crackles + input jack that can be unscrewed (one of my buddies had this guitar and it made him too, probably a constant in this model, it is screwed back m'enfin easily even by hand) then 8


I find the handle very nice, for me the highlight of this guitar. Access to acute impeccable.
Guitar balanced (I often stand cheek with a strap and is rotten Always in a good position). Sitting is fine too (like all superstrate I tried). Guitar not too heavy (although I'm not ^ ^ rugby, so surprise me some advice below).
Good one small criticism: must retune often (well I like it when bie perfecte ^ ^), approximately every 1 / 2 hours + as soon as it comes out of the bag, but good for the price .. .

I put 10 because I find nothing wrong!


I am playing hard rock, metal tt ds (except neo) on a Roland Cube 15, but I also tested on a fender bass amp (+ BOSS distortion). Then saturated bridge it will not hurt: you can get a little bit of everything, never Exel. Rhythms in this lack of "safe" (probably because of the wood used), and lead it can quickly become shrill ... hence the problem with the tone that is set wrong. In neck pickup is a little more "fat" ('attention is not a Les Paul), but I also find it quite flat, otherwise it is balanced with the bridge.
Then the clean is the weak point of this guitar: it's ugly. Bridge is in good biensur nazillard, cold (but then the bridge is not for the clean). The problem is that neck position is hardly better: There's a lot of low (fortunately There's the tone knob !!!), and it is very dry.

for the price, it is saturated in 9 and 7 in clean, then I put 8

ps: when I buy my stuff I did not realize all that (beginner, happy to finally have a playable instrument ...) But today I feel a lot more problems with this guitar sounds .


I stack the last year (the day).
Strengths: the handle (and playability of this instrument in general) (see use)
Point fable: the sound clean and manufacturing (vibrato -> good that I personally do not care, I do not buy the scratch for it, the tone knob [yes I use Moa, recently, or I 've been trying to sculpt my sound better now] (see sonoritées)
The quality / pix is ​​good, it is what it is worth.
For metalheads who think the clean sound is useless, I think that's scratching to get started. If you're like me, you love the metal in the broad sense (including Metallica ballads and solos of buesy 'Opeth), you may be able to find better, and I do not know yet. If you like not the metal or rock (at least) look away
