Rithimic Series is designed and inspired by Jeff Berlin, created by Cort. Jeff Berlin is known as one of the greatest bass players in the world and is also considered one of the finest clinicians in music.
Cort Guitars and Jeff Berlin have collaborated to release the Jeff Berlin bass since 2014. Jeff's basses have always been simple and vintage inspired, but then tweaked to his exact specifications to make them something special. The Rithimic provides that same balance between vintage, simple and well evolved for today's playing demands.
The bass features an alder body with a beautiful exotic wood top. Outfitting the body are a pair of Bartolini Jeff Berlin custom soapbar pickups, a Babicz Full Contact Hardware bridge, one volume control, one balance control, one tone control, passive electronics, and gold hardware. The hard rock maple neck is complemented with a rosewood fingerboard and four inline headstock featuring Hipshot Ultralight tuners. The action on the bass is low, and it is set up with DR Strings Custom DDT (Drop Down Tuning) for easy playing.
"After playing the same bass for so many years I was not sure that another builder could develop something that I would love. As soon as I played the very first Cort Rithimic bass, I was wowed. I could not believe how perfectly this bass turned out. This is an astonishing instrument that Cort has built for me."
