Here is what Cort say...
'Affordable but loaded with quality materials, components and craftsmanship, the Action Series basses define value for the aspiring bass player with versatile features as PJ, JJ and soapbar pickup options and active EQ electronics.
JJ Pickup Set -
A classic and beloved bass pickup set, the pair of J-type bass pickup along with the pickup balance control is an industry standard that delivers a wide range of bass sounds to cover virtually any musical situation.
Cort 2-Band EQ -
Laid out in Volume, Tone, Bass and Treble configuration, the 2-band EQ provides boost and cut functions for carefully selected bass and treble frequencies. This results in wider tonal range with a firm and focused low-end with a smooth usable boost.
Ergonomic Body Shape -
Found only on the Action Series basses, the ergonomic body shape, which fuses the best elements of classic and modern designs, was designed to reduce fatigue and enhance playability for extended playing sessions.
The well-seasoned woods provide lighter weight for extended playing and practice sessions – making the instrument suitable for both beginners and female players.'
