Cort A5 Plus Single Cut – The Pro Choice

Cort have developed a reputation in the industry as builders of affordable instruments of the highest quality. This was no accident, as Cort, in their factory, builds instruments for a large amount of brands. Suffice it to say, even if you’ve never played a Cort, you’ve most likely played an instrument built by Cort.

This expertise is clear when looking at the instruments under their own brand; and the Artisan Series A5 Plus Single-Cut is no exception.

The Artisan Series is Cort’s foray into in to modern, high-end bass designs, built using high-quality woods and high-end hardware. Every Artisan Series bass includes Hipshot hardware, Active Electronics, and Bartolini Pickups.

The A5 Plus Single-Cut is designed for for bassists who seek top-of-the-line professional sounds and build quality through a single cutaway body shape which improves the body-neck balance for added comfort while still providing unfettered access to the high frets.

Due to popular demand, the Artisan Single-Cut basses are now available in non-multi-scale versions for conventional aesthetics and playing style. The new poplar burl top not only beautifies the already great looking bass but adds a warm yet punchy high-midrange sound that will cut through the mix with authority.
