The Cort G290 FAT II has a Flame Maple Top, Alder Body, Ergo-V Roasted Maple Neck, Roasted Maple Fingerboard w/Compound Radius, Cort Staggered Locking Tuners, Cort CFA-III Tremolo Bridge, Voiced Tone VTH-77 Set Pickups.
One of the most acclaimed and sought-after guitars that Cort offers, the award-winning G290 FAT receives a handful of upgrades including the long-awaited roasted maple neck and fretboard, an additional colour option, black TUSQ nut and luminlay side dots. The key features that originally made G290 FAT popular remains unchanged however, including articulate and full sounding Voiced Tone VTH77 pickup set paired with a highly versatile custom pickup wiring system, Ergo-V neck and compound fretboard radius for enhanced playability, and superb build quality. G290 FAT II is the result of Cort’s dedication to making a great guitar even greater.
The Alder body provides a warm and full-bodied tone while roasted maple for the neck and fingerboard adds a modern element to the overall sound of the guitar. It’s a time-proven wood combination for superb sonic versatility. Together with a gorgeous flame maple top, this wood combination creates a well-balanced tone with bright and transparent highs and strongly projected low-midrange.
Besides providing modern high output for today's high-energy music, these new VTH- 77 pickups also clean up nicely to get great classic rock and bluesy tones to cover a wide variety of musical genres and playing styles.
The simple yet versatile control layout provides all the sounds the player needs while allowing the player to focus on playing and making music. The 5-way switch is custom-wired to provide glassy and sparkling single-coil sounds in the 2nd and 4th positions as well as the full- bodied and powerful humbucker sounds in the bridge, middle and neck positions.
By treating the maple wood in an oxygen-free oven at a high temperature, the wood stabilizes and develops a golden-brownish look for enhanced stability, a big bolder tone, as well as a more smooth vintage look.
A deluxe feature for players who like to transition from easy chording on the low register to high-speed soloing and enhanced string-bending on the upper register, the compound radius facilitates easier playability so you can focus on your playing.
