Cort Curbow6
Making Korean, 25 frets, 1 block Barto mk-1, Bolt-on maple neck with button in ébonol luthite and body and stick signed by the luthier Greg Curbow us.
Design of the body rather original, the bridge is sturdy, close to the color blue and Metallic fittings are matt gray.
A volume, a serious one medium and one high + a swith that is supposed to give her slap adjustable rear of the body by two screws ptites (gain and slap definition).
Weight: 4.3 kg

UTILIZATION

The handle is a bit wide but flat and access to treble is exceptional, we might even see 28 have 27 frets!
When standing, the lower tends to toe the nose and it's almost impossible to play sitting saw the shape of the body. Or take the webbing between the two thighs at the Alain Caron.
on the other hand which is exceptional is his weight, I do not think there are more 6-string lege, also lighter than a lot of 5 strings.

on the other hand is enough in its way but still correct. One would think that would have paved Barto more sonic possibilities, it was one to mess with the equalizer.
The overall sound with treble and bass midrange satisfactory, slap is not too bad but do not push too acute you may farting eardrums!

SOUNDS

It is a low rather limited in terms of his passing but everywhere.
As said above it sounds high, it must put the treble volume pot up in the middle and the bass and midrange sound background to "playable".
But good for a 6 strings at this price is not bad qd.

OVERALL OPINION

It's the bass that helped me put myself in the 6-string, bought on a whim in 2001, given its low price and added to its original look with this light weight.
Even if the sound is average, although it can be done by hand 6 string without breaking my back, I've been on WW since Thumb NT 6c (bobo !!!!!).
She will do nicely for those who want to stay at 5-string while wanting to have a 6 string side.
I do it again without hesitation that choice because no other brand does not offer the same range of 6 strings at this price with an original look.

Cort Curbow6
Origin: Core
24 frets with acute extrmit handle curves
Hardware matt chrome
I did customis all rglages who liked figure at departure
The body is made of composite MATIRE (lutite)
The neck is maple, the key in hopes to Ebne of varnish.

USE

The handle is very pleasant, very late, much can rapporcher strings without this frieze provided.
This handle is dfini, it moves only very little.
Good access to acute thanks to the curvature of the body.
The bass is trslgre but because of the shape of the body it is impossible (or so) to play sitting down.
However, while standing, it is well balanced.
At departure, there was an active micro bartolini it. This mic is a betrayal brand: very low end, with a shrill sound serious enough drafts, and almost no medium.
So I customize the electronic and the body by putting two microphones "soapbar" Seymour Duncan and a 3-band active electronics.

SONORITS

This bass is all the same made for those who love the sounds very creuss ...
So attention to rglages trsdlicats midrange frequencies.
With my new configuration it goes quite high level with other musicians, but it's not great all the same.

NOTICE GLOBAL

I use it for almost three years. It makes me a very good bass relief.
In addition, it has a very modern look that makes more effect.
Do not quibble: for the price, it all the same not bad. It is almost at the Ibanez 6 string for much cheaper.
And I find it really better than all 6 strings I've tried in the same price range.
Comfort handle and lgrete are exceptional for the price of this beautiful instrument.
