CORT CR250 The reason that I put this $400-$450 guitar on Custom & Botique Guitars has nothing to do with the fact that I own it. It has a solid mahogany body and neck,solid flame maple top,and vintage tone Alnico II pickups,comes perfectly set up,low action,no buzzing,properly intonated and in tune. This is true Botique quality without the botique price tag.
Cort's Zenox 242 FT (Figured Top) features an unusually well-sculpted top carve for an entry-level instrument. Mahogany body with a bolt-on rosewood over maple neck; distinctive design for under US 225 http://www.amazon.com/Cort-Z42-Ft-Tab-Electric-Double-Cutaway/dp/B008CVDQN2/
