Cort has collaborated with the Scorpions Matthias Jabs on two new signature models. The second is the Cort Matthias Jabs Arena 1 that includes “Scorpu” pickups and other hand-picked features. The Scorpu pickups were carefully designed by Matthias Jabs to his exacting standards. The 2-way Full Force Switch provides a direct out option. Easy Grip Tone Pot Coil-tap provides a single coil option from the humbuckers with a quick touch on the easy grip push/pull knob.
