"Super rare, "Cort Source Performer , WOW" "

Cort SourcePublished on 10/13/18 at 22:34
Peavey 20w, Jazz Brazil Funk music
Hard to precisely time it since there is no serial anywhere, after a search I would say late 80s early 90s.
Top craft, finishing is uppermost, great amazing acoustic power (not plugged in), tone and balance are superb from top to bottom, the guitar just projects loud crips and beautiful It's definitely a Jazz guitar.
Because of its age "Select by EMG" pickups have a wonderful warm round nice sound, similar to a Gibson PAF 57. For some the output level lightly on the low side might not suit. In that case because of the great sound quality of the EMGs due to aging, and only if you have to, I suggest replacing them with DiMarzio humbuckers from the 80s.For......

The neck is also perfection and quick, you just cruise up and down and back.
The craft has no cons and on the overall comparison to a Gibson 335 (me playing a red 335 on my cover pic at a NY gig), for a fraction of the money, there's no comparison the Cort is the big winner.
The source performer is not a beginner guitar it's a player guitar.
A rare superb instrument and if you stumble on it, I would suggest to grab it.
Cort never stops impressing me.

(This content has been automatically translated from French)
Made in Korea, co-trainer copy of ES 335 (with cleaner models that I had on hand)
body and maple neck, graphite Silet, tune o matic bridge and chrome mechanical oil bath
2 humbuckers 3-way selector, 2 tone, 2 volumes
handle C, 22 large frets
comes with strings d'addario flat spun 13/56
very good attention to finishing the pictures on the net are very poor (even in Cort)
Red colored wood (cherry) with a (thick) high gloss clear lacquer giving a beautiful appearance

UTILIZATION

Channel pleasant enough even for a beginner
Access to acute means (for my big fingers)
A little heavy and quite bulky (even sitting I prefer to use a belt) but it's the same thing for all models......

UTILIZATION

Channel pleasant enough even for a beginner
Access to acute means (for my big fingers)
A little heavy and quite bulky (even sitting I prefer to use a belt) but it's the same thing for all models with beam (semi hollow) I think.
Positioned as in Cort jazz guitar with its strings of origin (hard to play for a beginner) but pretty well rounded afar the sound of true or 335 clones

SOUNDS

Seeing my hesitation the seller has with cords 10/46 and make adjustments
total change for its classic rock to blues and Chuck Berry a very pleasant little "dry" for jazz in my opinion
On a Peavey 158 (15W) neck pickup very fine but the mic sounds pretty sharp "metal" not too pleasant
After buying a secondhand Fender Blues Junior is the ideal couple for less than € 900 all pass, except the heavy saturation that I tried just out of curiosity seeking limits
is easily obtained in clear sound very close to its vacuum with a very long sustain
Sometimes the bass just hang out and of course the sound is less rich than a Gibson over 2000 €
7 / 10 I note the sound regardless of price, but the change of string (but I would like a notice with the original strings)

OVERALL OPINION

I have only been 10 months and I (re) started playing the guitar for a year with a lot of fun to play
It is a reliable instrument that keeps the agreement and does not deregulation that allows you to concentrate on the games.
I love her look simple with no unnecessary decors very clean finish, it also really like and I can not explain why this model is so widespread if not by this positioning jazz guitar / strings of large rods
I like least:
- Its low a little confusing sometimes
- Empty I think the side rib thick varnish, etc., just the sound gene
I wanted to try a Sheraton (more expensive) but found the time and Ibanez AF105 (typed too jazz), AS73 and other Peavey Coxx or have not convinced me € 460 360 a year ago now it must be difficult to find a better value for money 10/10 but why not all the same.
I'm not disappointed by this choice and I certainly referrer but after testing other models at least out of curiosity and the pleasure of discovery
Updated 28/11/07
Here the two years since I Cort and after buying a Fender Start Deluxe (with lace sensor) a year ago I had a little trouble at the back, it seemed a little dull, changing microphones for GFS vintage 59 made it more interesting and I will gladly plays the handle fits comfortably in your hand it sounds really keeps its settings a brief guitar "robust", easy to live and play, plug and play what !
