Value For Money : Excellent
4 string bass Masterpiece series ABMP-1. <br>Poplar body <br>Neck Maple / Wenge 24 cases <br>Mechanical Hipshot lic. <br>Seymour Duncan SJB-3n-D & SMB4 <br>Comes with deluxe cover (very well done and very practical !)... <br><br>Purchased new, the beautiful seems robust. Mechanisms, microphones, knobs and the body shows that despite the edition in this series of low, entitled "Masterpiece" is not usurped (at least on mine ...). <br><br>Level look, there's no eSite, this bass is really beautiful, the body is really beautiful, finesse is required (it is far from a tank type or Fender music man;) ) <br>and the weight of the instrument is ideal, neither too heavy nor too light (after all is a matter of taste). Finally, the head is as beautiful as the one with the colorful logo cort the most beautiful effect. <br><br>Brief summary, we feel that we are entering the high-end finishes and really have nothing to envy the flagships of other brands often more expensive (crack, Warwick, Yamaha, Ibanez ... to City that them. <br><br>Portards level, something for all tastes and all types of sound, easy going kind of good sound slamming steve harris pest to slap, to the walking bass and a good round up of large families . No less than 5 knob (2 volumes for the pickups and 3 for the equation), we ansi switch. The knobs respond well and any changes will cause the change of which it is intended.

UTILIZATION

Use side, there is no deception possible is that one is adept handles cort. In fact to give an idea, the handle looks like that of C4 (bass entry mid-range home cort which represents for me the best value for about 250 euros ...) but thinner in depth and wider in width. In fact the handle is not TFWP for small hands (although it's a check) ... but hey it's not my case and it suits me perfectly. All slides like butter. access to acute is impecable, until the 24 th box, no need to hammer the strings, it sounds live (after each style ...). In fact for many low esay, the handle is really different from a warwick thumb, or a music man, it's still, much larger and much more on the deep end, everything is again a matter of taste.

The weight as stated above is true .. Well Balanced

The sound when it was just great, beautiful purr without any problem, and we feel that ofSuite left the world of bass series to get access to the bass pro.

I will focus on the versatility of the instrument, while the styles are really affordable, it is comfortable on the slap ... and even to the metal, I had no problems.

After saying versatility also said no specialization in a style, it's on the sound will be better on a low dedicated to a specific style, but being able to play everything is still well appreciated.

SOUNDS

I play pop - rock - jazz - blue - hard rock - metal (and ouip in the pub should make everyone happy) and I have not had a problem finding my sound in each of the styles. I play on the Harker and / or trace elliot and since I bought this bass, I rediscovered my equipment;) .

OVERALL OPINION

I use it intensely for several months now and really is a pleasure to play on it every time.

It's true that it is still not very low to very high quality on several points (neck, sounds ...) but good must also see the difference in price (a factor of two). You can not compare the incomparable.

So for me and against all that may appriorie entrainr brand Cort (who are also unjustified in my opinion), this bass is truly a blessing for those who want to access the world of luxury without necessarily breaking the bank (1300 EUR playback is really cheap).

Cort signs, after his C4 and its domination of the beginning of mid-range, low to high end came possedans the best value exists.

After I still advise to future aquereur test even when the instrument before trying. If it is not possible, you said that if vou enjoy the sleeves of Cort, you will have to crack on this one.

I go back!
