Cort Viva 7 pics

I have been meaning to do this for some time. A new Digital Camera prompted me.
It's my backup and beat on guitar. The mightymite pickups are surprizingly good and pretty hot. Body is like a Ibanez Saber. Offset abalone inlay. Trem sucks, but I blocked it anyway. Not sure of the body wood but it's got mojo in spades. Not a bad catch for 175$.

I love the neck. It's thinner than my 7620 (!) and fast as hell. If It had a better paint job, a locking Floyd, and a 5 way switch instead of the 3 way; it could become my main player. It also has a stock phase switch on the tone control.

The trem would probably be ok if the guitar had locking tuners. You can't really get away with a Wilkinson-type trem without them. Otherwise, that seems like a really nice guitar for $175.00

A set of really good tuning pegs, perhaps like the ones on a PRS, would do wonders for it too. Still a nice backup axe dude. =)

Yeah, iirc those PRS tuners, the ones with the little locking wheel at the bottom - really nice.

Not that I'm a Schecter fanboy (ok, I am) but, as Josh will probably attest to, the tuners on my C7 are some of the nicest I've come across. They never, ever slip.

Cort's an interesting company. They sell avante-garde gear specifically for musicians like us (7-string basses, 7 string guitars, etc.). The weird thing is they have no real "high-end" gear, meaning gear over $1000 or $1500. Even more interesting is that their guitars, that you can usually find for about $300-$600 are pretty damn good, and usually better than most other guitars in the same range (except Ibanez, of course!)

Nice guitar, and fantastic deal at $175. Get some new tuners and either set the bridge or replace it with a floyd and you've got a kickass specimen there that should be your main axe.

I'm on the lookout for a new Floyd. I think this axe was 600 new a few years ago. Got a custom fit HS case with it too. The case is just as good in quality as the hardshell Jem style cases from Ibanez. I did not expect to get this much bang for the buck I spent!

pretty neck.

Hipshot, I believe, makes a rather sweet vintage-style 7-string trem... food for thought... Pricey, but you get what you pay for.

welcome.

Unwritten rule around here - whenever someone posts about a new guitar they just bought without posting pics, we have 'em taken outside and shot.

Kidding, but actually I'm quite curious to see that in trans red - Sephi's is a surprisingly attractive guitar.

nice!

why not just fix the bridge? (fix, as in make it a fixed bridge, not fix as if it were broken lol). i mean, if you're main player has a trem, it would add some variety to your situation.

Wow- old thread.

Actuallly, now i have the trem floating and this axe tuned down a half step ( !! I know, I alwasy say that 7 string standard tuning is fine). It stays in tune pretty well for not haveing any sort of locking mechanism.

What it really needs is some new pips. They are pretty good, but just don't have the clairity I'm used to with dimarizo's.

Luke- welcome and post us a pic of that trans red!
