I was fortunate to find one of these in mint condition. I have the early model with the different headstock, longer horn, Cort "C" on the headstock and logo at the 12th fret. This guitar is nothing short of amazing. I have owned lots of guitars. Strats, Les Pauls, PRS, and others. I would put this on par with the PRS. Very easy to play and a very diverse sound palette. If you have the opportunity to get one of these used, DO IT. I have never seen another one like mine for sale. I am guessing that is because most people do not want to part with this guitar. .
