MGR/Steve's review"Cort G260HB"

Cort G260
I bought this on eBay from Cranes Music in Cardiff for £190 (new). My son started playing electric guitar and I got the bug!
I liked the look of it on eBay and it seemed pretty good value.

I like the all-wood, swamp ash finish. All the hardware is top class - Duncan Design hot rail pickups with coil tap, Wilkinson bridge/tremolo, light swamp ash body, locking machine heads and roller nut for uncompromising tuning stability. Classic strat 5 way switching gives gives you all the Fender type sounds you need and with the "pull of a pot" click in the coil tap for fatter Gibson and Ibanez tones.
It has a really nice sound and good action.
When it arrived I only needed to tweak the intonation (alter the string length at the bridge). The neck was perfect and action very good. The quality of the hardware was excellent.
Humbuckers are good and even in single coil mode there is no hum.

These are only minor niggles cos I am desperate to put something in here!
1. Front strap button is on the back of the guitar top horn rather than on the point of the horn.
2. 1 fret end is a tiny bit sharp and needed careful dressing with a file.
3. It is on the heavy side (but then how can you make a thick solid body give such a nice tone!)

Excellent! Good quality neck, pickups, nice tuners, knobs, bridge, etc. Really solid guitar!

I was very pleased with this guitar and think it is fantastic value for money. I will definitely consider Cort again when I next need another guitar.

Cort G260
Ash-body, maple neck
-Made in Korea it seems to me (a check ...)
-22 Frets, Seymour Duncan humbuckers three "hot rail" design with split
Bridge-Wilkinson
A volume-button, 5-way switch + split
Something very practical: the blocking strings headstock! Simply slide the rope and make a phone screwdriver (or even a coin because the hole is large enough!) So that the rope is found locked, the gallery has to finish four rounds with the rope: D It is not life grand?

UTILIZATION

The handle is very pleasant to the touch, I quickly used to the transition from my old classic with the handle of four meters in width to that of the G260
Access to acute is (for my taste) fairly easy, it slips over the strings
I must say it's mouth! Well mine has different colors in this picture (body solid wood & dark red).
however, have not weighed-in a lot of electric guitar I can not speculate on his weight ... May good we will not make his shy, it makes arms (lol)!
Duncan humbuckers with three ... Do we need to talk about sound quality?

For my first guitar I am completely satisfied! At least it's not the small guitar that takes a year!

SOUNDS

Three humbuckers, one can guess that this guitar is well shaped for metal, which makes me happy! ^ ^ The three microphones allow already a bunch of possibilities for the game, and split only multiply the number of possible combinations! So it fits a lot of styles and is perfect for playing a nice little blink ^ ^

OVERALL OPINION

I would say that is ca ... Not long as I use it (lol)
I loved owning three humbuckers it is relatively convenient and I rarely met guitar with this configuration. Otherwise it is Zolie, it gives a good sound, it is versatile and handy. I look for weak points for having played for him identify potential limits: p
Well ok I admit I'm not much electric guitar tester: $ my choice may have been fast, but I do not regret it
His first prize was (in Brest for the interested, the palm in the corner finistere) of € 500 and she underwent a first off a € 478 € 468 then when I saw it the first time (this was the shot Lightning lol) they wanted to sell it short! So for that price I think it's honest and Finin Cort does not surprise us (all the better: D) All the people around me turned to the G **** F **** N or R. My interest was initially focused towards Ibanez, but lacks the pot: there were more! lol so for a reorientation I am fully satisfied!

See above

UTILIZATION

-A little heavy
Channel barely passable
Luckily, my buddy owns a tube amp, otherwise the sound would be more than rotten

SOUNDS

My buddy did the blues, he 's bought it just two days ago. It 's a is already rotten.
Medium-clear sound
-Saturated and crunch that could rot

OVERALL OPINION

He should sell for a Squier

See further notice

UTILIZATION

Channel pleasant
Easy access to acute
rather well balanced, we play without sitting strap without a problem. She has a slight tendency to slide side bridge.
This gives a good sound without any problems (enough possibités combinations of microphones). When empty, it already sounds good.

and then she is too good I think
black with a metal plate which mirror (well now it starts yavoir a little dust on it, it's a little less class)

SOUNDS

I use it to compose in various styles (Metal, Rock, Jazz, Blues), even though my favorite style is funk. It is very versatile.
I do not use it to make "live", I go through my desk and then mix in the sound card directly, and through Amplitube.
I compare in-store with a lot of guitars in this price range, and it is by far the best for me (well, the Fender Stratocaster Mexico, competed for a sustain point of view)
Very good sustain vacuum connected without effect: crystal clear sound and brilliant, perfect for casseroles
With distortion, lacks a bit of roundness in the bass. (But less than the others)
(I tested different Cort, Ibanez, Epiphone, Yamaha, ... in this price range)

Well I always use the same settings a bit,
in fact the position "single coil" is less sweet and creates more noise so I almost never use it (see if I was a punk just one component of 4)
and if not, I put the button on tjs treble thoroughly. (Besides, I found the sound a little dull otherwise)
and following in general, the micro switch, I'm in between. (I find most interesting grain)

OVERALL OPINION

Well I said that I am not at the base guitarist. (Pianist and bassist)
what I like most is its versatility and the absence of parasites (compared to a classic strat which for me exactly the same sound)
I tried all the models in store in this price range (400-500)
value for money is great, I got it to 400 euros (including cover, with a set of nine strings)
Such, apparently, the sellers wanted to get rid of.
I am very happy with my choice.
With the experience I would do ...
more as I would have bought a reference
that's why I can not put him over 8

I make a small edit after a year of use:
2 Large faults:
1 - She goes out of tune too easily
2 - It is really no acute ... (Microphones shit?)

Edit: Micros starved of output, I think I will have to part with it ...
