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.
The P-type bass pickup is ideal for genres such as hard rock, classic rock and Motown while the J-type pickup is well-suited for jazz and pop. This combination provides a wealth of classic bass sounds for virtually any musical genre and style.
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 openpore finishes bring out the natural beauty of the woods on the Action PJ while improving the acoustic resonance of the instrument.'
