Cort Curbow 5 string Bass – $200
Here is the description from musicians friend:
The body is made of luthite and features an extended upper horn for strapped balance and a deep lower cutaway for unrestricted access to all frets. The rock-maple neck extends into the body all the way to the pickup for maximum vibration transfer. Electronics include a single, slim Bartolini passive hum-bucker wired to an active 9-volt circuit with 3-band EQ and a “slap” contour switch with adjustable bass and mid-range boost . Controls also include volume, treble cut, mid boost/cut and bass boost/cut knobs on the front. The fingerboard is made of Ebanol.
