June 28, 2011
<img src="/Portals/0/cort_gasoline.jpg" alt="img" style="float: left; margin-right: 9px; margin-bottom: 9px;" />Cort Guitars today announced the new Fuel Series guitars, a collaboration with Los Angeles-based builder Stephen McSwain of McSwain Guitars. The series offers two distinct models; the Gasoline 1 (pictured) and the Motor Oil 1, and both are available in retailers worldwide.<br /> <br /> Based on vintage gasoline and oil cans, each guitar has its own unique design featuring aged hardware, custom graphics and a distressed black satin finish. The Gasoline 1features a three piece, set-in neck while the Motor Oil 1 features a bolt-on neck.<br /> &nbsp;<br /> Specifications for both models include:<br /> Basswood body<br /> Canadian hard rock maple neck<br /> 24.75" scale<br /> Rosewood fingerboard<br /> Classic Rocker-II Pickups (H/H)<br /> T.O.M. Bridge w/string-thru body<br /> Graphtech Nubone nut<br /> &nbsp;<br /> McSwain has been quietly building a reputation for himself in the guitar community, as a builder of what he calls &ldquo;functional art&rdquo;. &nbsp;What started many years ago with a motor carving tool, some Exacto knives and some artistic and musical aptitude has flourished into a business of building exquisite guitars. &nbsp;Although prices for a McSwain instrument start at $5000, his craftsmanship attracts the attention of customers such as Steve Vai, Slash, Jerry Cantrell, Korn, Tommy Lee and Vernon Reid. &nbsp;<br /> &nbsp;<br /> Cort&rsquo;s advanced manufacturing capability allows them to produce the hand crafted designs of McSwain at more affordable prices all the while, maintaining the authenticity and detail of the originals.&nbsp;<br /> &nbsp;<br /> For more information, please visit <a href="" target="_blank"><strong></strong></a>.<br /> &nbsp;<br /> MSRP $599.00 USD Gasoline 1<br /> MSRP $539.00 USD Motor Oil 1
