Neck-Thru Body Construction

When it comes to punch and sustain, nothing beats neck-thru-body construction. The strings vibrate across the body and neck in coherent and linear manner, maximizing the tightness of the low-end with rich mids and singing highs.

Hipshot® TransTone Bridge

The string-thru-body and top-load construction facilitates greater tonal range while adding punch and enhancing sustain, perfectly complementing the longer 34” scale’s tighter string tension and focused sound.

5pcs Maple & Panga Panga Neck

Maple’s strength and brightness is ideally balanced with the warm midrange of Panga Panga. So, you get superb playability and feel, as well as excellent tonal definition.

Panga Panga Fingerboard

An African hardwood, Panga Panga has characteristics of Wenge and produces a tight and coherent sound. This mates extremely well with the instrument’s multi-laminate neck-thru-body construction.


Hipshot® Ultralite Machine Heads

Cort Artisan basses are equipped with Hipshot Ultralite Tuners that use a classic 20:1 tuning ratio. Made of cast zinc with aluminum strings posts and mounting nuts, these tuners are 30% lighter than other regular tuners. This results in improved balance plus also provides better tuning accuracy.
