The Cort G260  is strat style electric. The G260 was introduced in 2001, with three Duncan Designed hot rails pickups, locking tuners, offset dot position markers, rosewood fingerboard, Wilkinson VS-50 II tremolo and roller nut. Around 2003 the pickups were achanged to white HSS Mighty Mites and the locking tuners & roller nut were dropped for standard hardware. Early models were available in honeyburst or natural finishes but by 2005 the G260 was natural finish only. The G260 (circa 2015) has a tusq nut, sunburst or natural finish, maple fingerboard with standard abalone dot position markers and black HSS Duncan Designed pickups (SC101, SC101 and HB102B).

The common theme, across successive generations of the Cort G260, is its natural finish - showing off the swamp ash body. There was one version of the G260, however, which did not have natural finish. The Cort G260B model was introduced in 2001 and had black or silver metallic finish and a mirror pickguard, but is now discontinued.

The older versions were made with 3 "Duncan Designed" mini-humbuckers with a split push-pull option in the tone pot.

They came in black or orange sunburst colors and had wilkinson auto-locking tuners and a wheel nut.

These days the G260 series are H-S-S, also with split for the humbucker but the tuners are standart (Wilknson, as far as I know) and bone nut.

Both versions have a Wilkinson VS50II bridge and are Swamp Ash body, bolt on Maple neck and Rosewood fingerboards
