CORT S SERIES

The Cort S series guitars had a double cut-away stratocaster style body but the body was offset allowing better balance. The  Cort S series models had an extra deep cutaway for easy access to the upper frets. The headstock was designed with a three-each-side tuner layout for straight string pull from the bridge to the nut. With the S series, the higher the model number the better the specifications. The models ranged from the entry level S400 - with agathis body and Powersound pickups to the S2900 model with alder body, quilted arched maple top and Seymour Duncan pickups.
