the gibson LP standard now costs $3759. I am also disappointed because they discontinued the ebony finish, which was the best finish... and it was cheaper...

Anyhow. I think the epis are made in a factory in china rather than indonesia, but I haven't really got anything bad to say about the epis as far as construction goes. The electronics are the weakness really.

Not sure if that gretsch bass I have is from the same factory, but it's pretty nice for the most part. Needs a bit of fretwork it seems, but that's not a massive issue.

and I'm not sure what you mean about epiphone and gibson, but I'm more likely to spend my money on a high end epiphone LP instead of a LOWER end gibson model for 10x the price.
In Aus honestly like lower end gibsons are about the same price as high end epiphones so that's what i meant!

I vouch for that. Almost the same on the Fender end but there is normally like $100-200 difference.

I might pop into my local shop this week to see if they are going to stock this guitar. Probably going to be close to a grand here but this shop is pretty good price wise.

Does anybody here have the computer knowledge/ time to show what the Cort will look like with custom hardware on Photoshop or something by any chance?

Err well like this, but with Cort instead of Manson on the headstock Oh and the pickups look slightly different and the neck wood is lighter, but yeah basically like this.

Are all US brands so expensive where you are? Mesa amps for example.

And I'm curious how many dealers are going to stock this guitar. Not sure if it will just go to a few select ones, or if they'll be carried in practically every big store that has similar guitars.

Comparatively expensive. Wasn't terrible when our dollar was 1 for 1 but now it's a bit worse off.

Of course, always hard to tell by retail price but say for a Fender Standard Strat HSS Plus Top.

US (RRP, $739USD ~$900 AUD)
http://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/StratFatMBSB

AUS (RRP $1,149AUD ~$950USD)
http://musoscorner.com.au/site/index...474&storepid=6

You can see why I don't mind buying from the US. Same goes for pretty much all Fender owned stuff. Stays around that percentage of inflated cost. Considering shipping from those sort of sites cost $100 or so, that's still $100 or so saved. *shrugs* Usually you can bargain a bit in store to get the price down. I'd guess the Cort if they stock it will be in the $800-1000 mark, depending where the dollar is at.

You might be able to get one for a good price, it's shorter distance from Indonesia to Australia than it is from Indonesia to the UK, as far as I can tell if the guitar shop sells Cort guitars, they will sell these

As I learned today, it cost me twice as much to ship a package to Indonesia than the US or Europe. Well... only because I required tracking but still.

Anyway, wonder how the pickups will sound. Hugh looked over the pickups but not entirely sure what that means.

Didn't mine have tracking as well? Or did it include that anyway?

Surely almost everyone who buys this will end up upgrading the pickups to MBKs

You'd be surprised about that. I expect a lot of these guitars will end up in the hands of fan boys who don't really play guitar or know anything of tone.
