It’s becoming a bit of a cliché to say that the quality of electric guitars made in Asia just keeps getting better and better. But the proof is in the instruments themselves. 

When we looked at Cort’s G300 Pro, we concluded that it was “a difficult guitar to fault, the sort of instrument that spans pretty much every rock genre there is and quite a bit more… a real everyman instrument that could sit in a modern metal band just as easily as a function pop/soul ensemble.”
