Damn! And those Bartolini MK1 pickups are some of the most musical sounding pickups I've tried. Just very nice sounding.

Back when these were made in South Korea the tuners were Hipshot-licensed, but made by/for Cort somewhere in Asia. The back of the tuners used to say "Hipshot lic". I don't know why they stopped doing that, but I expect these are licensed versions too. The Bartolini-licensed Mk1's are made by Cort themselves too. The bridge on this one is Hipshot licensed too, it borrows the saddle design from the Hipshot style A but with conventional intonation screws instead of the freely moving, locking design of the style A bridge.

They're mighty fine basses, and very comfortable too. I used to own a Korean-made Cort Artisan B4 with wenge neck and fingerboard and maple stringers, and I loved the playability and feel. I didn't care for the Mk1's though.
