FWIW -- received a report that the Cort models Stat2T/Stat3T & Stature are definitely NOT of the same family. Though good-quality axes (some Stature have great finishes), they're just Stratoclones.

And, Tony if you were to ask the same question Will Chen did about the Parker Fly?
Beautiful, or Fugly?
I Vote Very Fugly, especially for the Headstock! BigGrin

Actually, I kinda like the headstock shape. It nicely echoes the overswept body, & it's a very compact straight-pull design as well. A big Gibsony shape would not just be poor design, but make dive more likely -- & at least it's not yet another lame "please don't sue us, FMI!" panhead.

I admit to prejudice: happens that I am kinda tall, slim, & angular myself. I once said I'd never play a Strat onstage because it half-covers me (hence my fascination with "reduced" shapes like the Badwater). At the Sunday sessions, the Sterling stood out from a crowd of Strat-slingers.

My plan this year is to do some housecleaning, & sell off some lovely guitars (of which I simply have a surfeit!). This may well include my two Corts, the Viva & the Sterling.

Maybe I missed it, last time 'round, but the page at Guitar List is easily THE reference for basic info on the models of the Sterling/S-Series guitars.
http://www.guitar-list.com/cort...ss-guitars/cort-s-series
Notice that only a few have the super-deep horns, notably the 1000 & the 2600 (which is also the only one with a "Viva style" 12th-fret inlay). At a quick scan, I see that my guitar is an early S1000 (black). The chrome pickup rings are probably aftermarket, & I see no indication that these are Mighty Mite pickups.

(Using a search engine with these is a total pain. However, I wouldn't mind encountering some of the higher-end models, like the quirky S2600 or well-appointed S2900, so I keep hoping.)

However, the mystery remains as to the "boat neck" on my S1000, a "medium vee" neck almost as severe as the "hard vee" used mid-'50s by both Gibson & Fender. No mention at all as to whether this was a feature only of early Sterlings, or maybe an option or limited distribution of some type.
________________

A side-note -- nice-looking Viva Gold (MIK) for $250 shipped.

Looks sharp in that clearcoat finish, plus the Rose & h-s-h config.

A minor update, to mention that the Guitar List site has hadaminor update, & now includes a few more photos & some info about the line's evolution --
https://www.guitar-list.com/cort...ss-guitars/cort-s-series

Turns out my S1000 has a mahogany body, & (originally, at least) Mighty Might pickups.

And at the moment there's a black S3000, h-s-h & Rose, for $135 + $55:

Nice, kinda modelled after the Caparison brand of ultra shredders.
