Cort unveiled the G280 Select, a premium S style electric guitar that invests in luxury with an attractive figured maple top and extends the brand’s philosophy of “affordable boutique” that we’ve seen in guitars such as the G280DX and the G290 GREASE.
The G280 Select arrives in an HSS configuration and complements a high output Voiced Tone VTH-77 bridge humbucker with a pair of VTS-63 single coils that are selected and controlled via a five-way pickup selector, volume controls and tone.
It has a solid alder body with a flamed maple top, a pearloid pickguard to distort the vintage-modern aesthetic, while Cort’s CTA-III built-in tremolo promises a stable platform for lashes.
Featuring stainless steel saddles and a solid machined steel block and steel baseplate, Cort claims that the CTA-III’s design will deliver “dramatically improved sustain, faster and more punchy pick attack. , and a more coherent and balanced fundamental sound “.
While the G280 Select has a grown-up look, available in an eye-catching amber or transparent black finish, it should nonetheless be a suitable vehicle for ridiculous speed displays, with its bolt-on neck topped with a rosewood fingerboard carved into a Compound Rayon. from 12 to 16 “suitable for chippers which will undoubtedly facilitate your passage from the first fret to the 22nd, pushing the fretting hand for a cascade guitar.
And yet, once again, we have this push-pull of Cort’s vintage-modern design principles, with the bolt-on maple neck carved into an Ergo-V profile reminiscent of classic electric guitar designs of yesteryear, and should provide a considerable measure of hand fretting comfort.
This being a premium design, it’s no surprise to see a set of staggered locking tuners on the headstock, completing what is a very impressive spec for a guitar costing Â£ / $ 549 on the street. See Cort for more details.
