Cort Starlite dark varnished wood color for the body (pulling the chestnuts over time), handle colored mahogany and touches (dark, it depends on the model).
Made in Korea, but very good.
The handle is divided into 22 frets.
Equipped with a Wilkinson tremolo (Floyd Rose type).
Mics: a double at the bridge that can enter the function with simple pull-off the tone knob, a medium and severe, with a 5-way switch and one volume knob.
I put a 6 / 10 for features, everything is quality of mechanical grip strap buttons, provided they do not open the hood, electronics and connections (cachées!) are very rough.

UTILIZATION

The handle is really astonishing ease, it m'surprend today!
Access to all of the boxes is pretty easy (exept maybe the last two, but it depends on each hit).
In terms of weight, some find it too light then too fragile, I think the weight is correct and corresponds quite so feminine form (3.4 kilos).
It is a very versatile guitar that allows to quickly get the sound you are looking (it is not really designed for heavy metal or the big rock!).
I note 8 / 10 again for all the reasons described above, in relation to its original price of around € 400 in 1997 (now at € 300 side).

SOUNDS

I play funk, reggae, blues, jazz, variety ', rock, pop to 2 balls and every time I fall pile hair on the sound I want.
I use it with a JC 120 (a clear preference for clean sounds you will have noticed!) And a small collection of effects offering me a wide enough range of sounds.
The clean sounds are quite remarkable:
- Round, warm and soft in serious position.
- Type in Start position low / medium (it does not equal the Start, fortunately!)
- More and more incisive dug in the bass and treble, rather neutral but to jazz.
- The position offers a double medium + sound richer in acute, with a level equal to the bass and midrange, almost metallic as a result (handy for a vintage sound ...)
- Finally a good Péchu a double self-respecting (preferred saturated / overdrive).
I propose a 9 / 10 for these qualities, I find it really sounds that we discover the soul of the Starlite.

OVERALL OPINION

The "Cort Starlite" is the ideal tool for any guitarist or semi novice beginner or scratch at all wanting a versatile, inexpensive but effective and quality.
I use it for over 10 years now, and to be honest I can not get enough.
This is a good compromise for the discovery of electricity.
Rounded shape too can put off some, but aesthetics is a big topic at the same time ... it's not a great big guitar (normal for the price), but this is not the first one low price range!
A very good substitute / compromise.
