If you venture outside the mainstream brands, you’ll find that Cort Guitars has been rolling out an impressive array of their very own premier electric guitar models that are not only visually striking but come loaded with upscale hardware and electronics. 

It’s a significant observation considering Cort is known to manufacture guitars for other makers, yet its signature instruments often take a backseat to more popular guitar brands.

Paul Riario

Paul Riario has been the tech/gear editor and online video presence for Guitar World for over 25 years. Paul is one of the few gear editors who has actually played and owned nearly all the original gear that most guitarists wax poetically about, and has survived this long by knowing every useless musical tidbit of classic rock, new wave, hair metal, grunge, and alternative genres. When Paul is not riding his road bike at any given moment, he remains a working musician, playing in two bands called SuperTrans Am and Radio Nashville.
