Cort M600 BC Electric Guitar
By PAUL BOTHNER MUSIC | March 2, 2017
Sometimes, a guitar is more than just the sum of its parts. It transcends simple function to become a piece of art. The Cort M600 is one such a guitar.
Cort M600 – Function and Beauty Combined
The Cort M600 stands out from the crowd because it sounds as good as it looks, but costs less than you’d expect. The guitar features a Black Cherry flame maple top with a mahogany body, in addition to its dual humbucker pickups.
This gives the guitar a tone reminiscent of the traditional Les Paul guitars, but with one distinction. The big difference between the M600 and a Les Paul is that the M600 has a double cutaway.
So, why is that remarkable? Simply put, with a double cutaway body, the neck feels longer. To clarify, this means that you’ll be able to play the higher frets with greater ease.
To that end, you will be able to play big meaty chords lower down on the neck while still being able to comfortably solo up the neck to highest frets. The neck is beefy and chunky, which many players prefer over the thinner speed necks. Because of this, the Cort M600 is aimed at softer rock and jazz players. Primarily because shredders and speed players would prefer a “faster” neck.
The guitar comes equipped with a Tone Pro bridge and tailpiece. This ensures a great transfer of sound, as well as an unrivalled tuning stability.
The guitars run a pair of Duncan Designed humbuckers which offer a full and tight sound. Sonically, these pickups offer a solid bass response while the mids are rich and warm. In addition, the highs are said to sparkle and are sweet without being piercing.
To further increase tuning stability and tone, the guitar comes equipped with a Graph Tech Nubone nut. In addition to increasing sustain, the Nubone nut will also reduce the possibility of strings snapping.
In conclusion, this is a great guitar for any intermediate to advanced player who is looking for that classic Les Paul tone, but in an easier to play the guitar. If you would like to read up more on the Cort M600, click [here].
