CORT SOLO SERIES

The Cort Solo series were Cort superstrats available during the late 1990s - their styling is like the Ibanez RG. The Solo models differ in terms of hardware (some had Floyd Rose licensed tremolos) and pickup choices. By 2001 the Cort Solo series had been discontinued. The Cort Viva series (which continues to this day) has a similar outline body shape but has softened radiused edges.
