CORT G SERIES

The Cort G Series is a long standing range of Stratocaster style electric guitars produced by Cort. Although all G models are the same basic Strat shape with bolt on maple neck, they come with a range of body woods, pickups and hardware. Generally the lower the number the lower the specification and price of the G-model.

CORT G-Custom

The Cort  G-Custom was introduced in 2012 - but is essentially the same as the Cort G290 model. The G-Custom replaced the G290 as the top of the range of G-series Stratocaster style electrics. The G-Custom has a light swamp ash body with carved quilted maple top, bird's eye maple neck, Sperzel Trim-Lok tuners, EMG SA single coil pickups and an EMG 89 humbucker.
