From entry-level bass for beginners to professional bassists seeking premium bass, GB bass can continue its role to serve all those bass players demand.

The Alder body provides a perfectly balanced tone while gives a slight boost on high mid range. It's one of the ideal tonewoods for bass guitar and used by many guitar makers since 1950's.

The Canadian hard Maple neck provides power and stability as well as contributing a warm, beefy and punchy tone w/ a strong upper midrange. Dense and rigid yet w/ just the right amount of tactile flexibility, it responds sensitively to your picking attack and slapping techniques w/ plenty of articulation and power.

The new Voiced Tone J-style single-coil pickups perfectly complement the big robust acoustic sound of the bass w/ modern clarity, transparency and vintage warmth. Painstakingly developed by Cort's engineers by drawing on decades of pickup winding experience, the Voiced Tone pickups feature the highest-grade components and winding techniques to allow the natural character of the guitar to be faithfully delivered to the amp.

Designed and implemented to facilitate easy access to the upper register of the fingerboard, the new Ergonomic Neck Joint increases playing comfort while reducing tendon stress and awkward wrist and finger positions. Now you can solo away and reach the highest notes w/ confidence as well as greatly improved playability.
