Cort Guitars Announces the Return of the Curbow Series Basses

Cort has a new Curbow Series of basses for 2012, including the four new models. The Curbow 41, Curbow 42, Curbow 51 and Curbow 52 each feature bolt-on necks, soft maple bodies and Bartolini electronics with slap-switch system. The 41 and 42 are 4-string models, and the 51 and 52 are 5-string.

Cort developed the series in collaboration with bass builder Greg Curbow. The basses include Curbow’s iconic headstock design, and are available in either single- or dual-pickup models.
