One of the most acclaimed and sought-after guitars that Cort offers, the award-winning G290 FAT receives a handful of upgrades including the long-awaited roasted maple neck and fretboard, an additional color option, black TUSQ nut and luminlay side dots. The key features that originally made G290 FAT popular remains unchanged however, including articulate and full sounding Voiced Tone VTH77 pickup set paired with a highly versatile custom pickup wiring system, Ergo-V neck and compound fretboard radius for enhanced playability, and superb build quality. G290 FAT II is the result of Cort’s dedication to making a great guitar even greater.
Flamed Maple Top on Alder Body
The Alder body provides a warm and full-bodied tone while roasted maple for the neck and fingerboard adds a modern element to the overall sound of the guitar. It’s a time-proven wood combination for superb sonic versatility. Together with a gorgeous flame maple top, this wood combination creates a well-balanced tone with bright and transparent highs and strongly projected low-midrange.
Voiced Tone VTH-77 Pickup Set
Besides providing modern high output for today's high-energy music, these new VTH- 77 pickups also clean up nicely to get great classic rock and bluesy tones to cover a wide variety of musical genres and playing styles.
Custom Wired Electronics
The simple yet versatile control layout provides all the sounds the player needs while allowing the player to focus on playing and making music. The 5-way switch is custom-wired to provide glassy and sparkling single-coil sounds in the 2nd and 4th positions as well as the full- bodied and powerful humbucker sounds in the bridge, middle and neck positions.
Roasted Maple Neck & Fretboard
By treating the maple wood in an oxygen-free oven at a high temperature, the wood stabilizes and develops a golden-brownish look for enhanced stability, a big bolder tone, as well as a more smooth vintage look.
Compound Radius Fingerboard (12” - 15.75”)
A deluxe feature for players who like to transition from easy chording on the low register to high-speed soloing and enhanced string-bending on the upper register, the compound radius facilitates easier playability so you can focus on your playing.
Ergo-V Neck Profile
Highly popular among guitar players, the Ergo-V neck shape provides greater comfort at any position across the entire neck for enhanced playability.
Cort® Staggered Locking Tuners
The locking tuners provide superb tuning stability by eliminating string slippage at the posts while facilitating quick string changes.
Graph Tech® Black TUSQ Nut
Preferred by many guitar makers and players for rich tone and sustain, the TUSQ® is an advanced polymer that's formed under high heat and pressure for uniform density. It's designed to transfer string energy more efficiently, and to make guitars come alive with enhanced harmonics, volume and sustain.
Spoke Nut Hotrod Truss Rod
The spoke nut Hotrod truss rod ensures smooth and precise setting of the neck bow. Often overlooked by many guitarists, the neck bow (or relief) is very critical for the best possible playability. This spoke nut truss rod adjustment feature allows the player to dial in the exact amount of neck bow depending on the player’s technique and playing style.
Luminlay Side Dots
The Luminlay side dot position marks make it easy for players to see the fretboard position markers when performing on dark stages.
