I found a neat-o Cort Curbow 4-string at a shop today. I played it and I totally dug how it played and sounded and such. It was darn cheap, too! I guess it was consigned or something. But anyway. I was completely sold on it until my friend, who was the voice of reason, mentioned the fact that the pickup was totally weird (some kind of Bartolini) and all complex and that it would prolly be a real pain in the arse to get it fixed if anything bad should happen to it.
So, basically I'm wondering if anyone here knows anything about these basses that can explain to me how they work electronically, if it'd be easy to fix, etc. I was also wondering what was up with the luthite body. Is luthite better than wood? In what ways is it bad? I'm basically clueless on this type of bass... I'm generally the more type of traditional person, but man did that thing play like butter... It's a matter of me getting either that or an Epiphone Explorer bass in the same price range... Yeah yeah. Explorers aren't that traditional, but oh man was that thing hot. Anyway. Yeah.
