Such a waste of potential.
Smasher404, 16.01.2020
The first one I got had essentially the same problem spbaeta (10.09.2019) mentions in his review on Thomann. Terribly missaligned string holes in relation to the bridge. I couldn't properly intonate treble strings, because I couldn't move the saddles any further and the notes were still flat on the 12th fret. I returned it, but asked for a replacement because i I couldn't get these specs on any other factory produced guitar on the market. So Thomann said that they have a replacement for me and assured me that the second guitar is going to be fine. When it came i checked the string holes and they seemed way better, but when I tried to intonate the guitar it happened all over again. I was able to barely intonate the treble strings(moving the saddles all the way towards the neck to a point they went out of their "rails", but was unable to intonate the F# string. It was sharp on the 12th all the time. I even removed the spring from the intonation screw so I could move it further. Thicker string would make it worse. There's something wrong with the bridge.
TERRIBLE FAIL OF A GUITAR, STAY AWAY!

Nice features but poor construction.
spbaeta, 10.09.2019
The people at factory really screwed up installing the bridge on my guitar. The string holes and saddle positions are not on the right spot making it very difficult to intonate. I have to loosen the saddles screws all the way down on the thinner strings and it's still too flat at the 12th fret.
Besides that, the saddles are also misaligned in relation to the neck. And I'm not talking about the fanned fret and multiscale design. They are tilted making the strings never sit properly in the pocket on the saddles. This makes strings really easy to break.
Fretwork isn't great also.
They missed the oportunity to make a great guitar here.
The transport cardboard box is the worse! Almost thin as paper! What a bad way to cut costs! My guitar came with the headstock tip smashed and the box was pierced in transport. Too bad I live in a country where I have to pay taxes in advance. It would not work for me to return it.

Really great instrument for that price
FattyFingers, 17.03.2020
The guitar is really great. The finishing is really good, I didn’t find any defect in craftmanship or construction. The only thing I did when got it I regulated the neck curve by regulation rod and lower the strings a bit at the bridge, but that’s normal regulation thing. Luckily Cort supplies all the tools in the box, so that was quick and easy. Swamp ash body gives deep sound and nice sustain. Fan frets do not make a big difference in playing. Its like plug and play. The only thing which prehaps is a remark is when the coils are splitted and in passive mode, the e1 string sounds a bit silent. But thats not guitar to play blues. I really recommend it for modern heavy sounds playing.
