South Korean manufacturer Cort has announced two new basses for its Artisan C range, the five-string C5 Plus OVMH and four-string C4 Plus OVMH.

Both of the models aim to offer features from the premium Artisan A range at a more affordable price. The most notable aspect is the tasteful combination of tone woods, featuring a maple core, mahogany wings and ovangkol top. This is paired with a bolt-on Canadian maple neck and jatoba fretboard.
