    These look very interesting. The original style was a little more rounded and had a different pickguard. These look a little more LP Junior-ish. I'm hoping the necks aren't skinny.

    A nice (derivative) vibe there.
    Weight?
    Sound?
    Cool

    I like it, especially the fretboard inlays.

    My uncle has a 20ish year old Cort archtop, and it's a great guitar.

    30 years ago, at a big bar in Phoenix, Marshel Tucked Band.
    Guitar player had a unique Cort guitar. Tele ish guitar. No visible pickups.
    With the flip of a switch, it went from electric to acoustic. I was fascinated and amazed.
    Talked to him after the show. We went out to the bus where he showed me the paperwork on it.
    I remember it smelling bad in the bus.
    Really cool guitar.

    I like both colors, the blonde is more Fenderish obviously, the reddish brown one more Gibson.
    Don't know if anyone in our area sells Cort guitars but I'd like to try one out sometime.
    This must be brand new, a quick Google search just showed the older version.

    Cool. Just a hunch but those necks look too skinny and bolted on. I could live with a bolt on but no-go on the thin neck.

    Price?
    Those do look good.....but like mentioned I'd need to know weight and (especially) neck thickness.
    Every Cort guitar I've ever played was good quality, including my 1993 Korean Fender Squier Telecaster, made by Cort.

    The original ones were $399. It'd be great if these came in around there.

    I think I could find use for one of those definitely different but retains enough tradition in its appearance that its not going to end up.an odd ball
