I think they sell these new for £200 now, but if you want the fancy looking version its £300 for the sharktooth inlays and the red overcoat.

As I said before, played this and it felt buzzy - neck looked v. straight though, I think the setup may have just been poor.

Never knew the FR was an official though, I'd have assumed it was just a licensed?

yeah these definatly need setting up before playing. I was lucky in that mine had already been done by a technician, so I got a nice low action and zero frut buzz smile.gif

The most logical thing would be that it's retrofitted...

Nice review there Matt, this guitar looks fine for metal playing. I guess it is versatile with those HSH pickups. You can change the pickups maybe something like a SD JB&59 classic combo and some fender in the middle and you got yourself a great axe in many years to come.smile.gif ROck on!

Totally agree with you Matt.

Im playing my Cort X-6 for 1 year now and im still impressed with its performance.
Some people told me to buy a more expensive guitar but i dont want to.
My Cort gives me al the pleasure and different styles i need.
Especially semi acoustic and full throttle distortion on the humbuckers.

Nice review and nice guitar man! Congrats on buying it.

I think the H S H gives a lot of options, and becasuse the possibility to make the humbuckers singlecoils makes even more posibilities. One thing, isn't the plug in the way? It's at your bridge, I can imagine you hit it when palmmuting or something like that.

Overall looks very neat and I like the pickups!!
