    Brief & Accurate Description of gear/guitar: Up for sale is my Cort Viva 7 string guitar. It is in really good shape for the age. There are some scuffs on the guitar from normal playing, but these are only in the clearcoat and can be buffed out with some elbow grease. I just haven't had the time. The frets could use a bit of work as well. This isn't a very popular or well known guitar, but it ranks up there with any Ibanez 7421 or similar that I've ever owned or played. The neck REALLY resembles the Ibby necks in terms of thinness and comfort. From research I've done, this guitar was built in the same factory as many Ibanez guitars, which would really explain why the neck is so comfy! The body shape is a mix between an Ibby S and Ibby JS series and is extremely comfortable as well. Specs are as follows:

    Body-Mahogany
    Neck- 5-piece Maple/Wenge
    Controls- 3-way switch, 1 Vol., 1 Push/Pull Tone
    Bridge- Traditional Trem (I don't have the trem bar)
    Scale- 25.5 Inches

    I have it currently set up with 10.5-68 Strings in drop Ab tuning. The neck is straight and the truss rod works as it should. I have shimmed the neck slightly to improve the setup.

    Modifications (if any): Just changed the tone and volume knobs, previous owner got rid of the Cort sticker on the headstock. I also had to make my own control cavity cover. It isn't perfect, but it does the job.
    Accessories (hardshell case etc): none
    Location (City,State or City,Country): Cascade, Virginia, USA
    International OK? : sure, if you pay shipping and customs
    Contact Info (No Phone #s) pm me here
    References (eBay or other forum userid):geeman_8 on ebay, itrader is 100%
    Price (include currency and if firm/obo): $250 shipped in the Continental US. Only trades I'm interested in would be an 8 string set of BKPs, preferably Coldsweats. Possibly other 8 string sets in a partial trade.

    There is a used one of these sitting in my local GC, I've played it, and its actually not a bad guitar at all. I've been thinking about picking it up as a beater. It's definitely worth what you are asking. Free bump.
