I should have added that this is 'deal of the day' so will only be available for the next 12 hours or so.

Also, this is a proper pre-2015 model so doesn't feature the unpopular wide neck, auto-tuners & dodgy logos!

Someone I know in the US has one of these and his is a 2013 model and says it's a great guitar.
super hot deal!, I have a 2013 LPJ which is very similar and thats a great guitar, so this should be brilliant too
Ebony also available @ same price.

Well spotted - it was still showing at £599 when I posted the deal.

S'alright, Black is so much better anyway! Still dithering. Flippin HUKD.
Crazy deal! Buy one!
I did!

I did!


Nice one - think you've got a bit of a bargain there!
I'm left handed, when I saw ONLY EBONY LEFT, I felt hope only for it to be dashed.

Try and find one for £399 you won't. So if you want it get it.
Bit expensive for me to play twinkle twinkle little star. Heat for those who can actually play though.
i'd do yourself a massive favour and buy one of these instead:

cortguitars.com/uk/…z44

i sold my gibson (which cost nearly four times the amount) and bought one of these - they may be a fraction of the price, but they're a far better guitar. if you *really* want to pay more, they have z custom models as well which are even better, but the only difference is in the pickups and finish rather than in build quality. they also have a CR series which is more traditional les paul, but the z44 is a ridiculous guitar for the money. costs about the same as the above, but you're not paying for the logo. i can recommend rguitars, too - i've bought several guitars from richard over the years, and they've all been superb and set up perfectly to my specifications as part of the price. if you're curious to see exactly how good these are, try finding one second hand. i've been hunting ever since i bought my first brand new, but they never turn up second hand because no-one wants to let them go!
Bought one earlier today. Great price.

I have a Cort Acoustic which is superb for the price. My brother in law who plays semi pro is always trying to get me to sell it to him!
Anyway I bought the Ebony, so we will see on Friday!
Wish I'd got the Gibson sg from last week, and that I was single.

How much do dealers normally sell these for?

Why do you say that? Have you owned / played one?
If it wasn't such a heart-ache and waste of money selling old guitars (in the sense that you basically get 10% of what you paid) I'd buy this one to replace my Epiphone SG in a heartbeat

What about a Cort Z42?
yes and I own a guitar store/repair business. have been in the trade for 13 years and played more guitars than you can shake a
stick at.

What about a Cort Z42?



it has a bolt-on neck rather than a set neck, the pickups aren't quite as good, and it doesn't have the same sparse fretboard (which i love, but others prefer to have fret markers on the face) but again it's a great guitar at the price. the z44 is a cut above it, though, and it's worth the extra in my opinion.

they're around the same £400 mark, usually. i'd go to rguitars for the setup alone, though - you might pay a tiny bit more than elsewhere, but you end up with a proper setup and the quality control is out of this world. i wouldn't buy a new guitar anywhere else these days.

cort make guitars for many of the big names in the business (ibanez, for example, don't even have a factory of their own - i read somewhere that they make around 30% of the new guitars for sale worldwide in their factories, and barely any of them carry the cort brand), so i think they're just genuinely well made guitars. i'll certainly never trade mine in for anything else i've played since i bought my z44 - she's a keeper. and yeah, i have a couple of professional guitarist friends, and they loved it (albeit they're death-metal shredder types, so my tobacco burst singlecut just wouldn't work on stage, apparently).

As do I and you're talking crap pal.

I own a guitar store, have been playing for 25 years and repair and restore guitars. enough to have an opinion in your book?
they have to worse quality control and if your lucky you get something which is playable. my advice spend that cash on a far eastern built guitar and you will get a better instrument.

and you work in this industry and you don't think these are ****? and how exactly am I talking crap?
