            Yes, the 2005 model has the mini toggle between the volume and tone knobs, guess it

              I was so close to finding the specs. On the international Cort website, there is a description of the 2005 model, but the link to the specsheet is broken!

                What more specs do you want? It has a swamp ash body with a quilted maple veneer, 25.5" scale, U-shape maple neck with a rosewood fretboard, EMG SA/SA/89, mini toggle and a new two-point trem. The tuners are locking Sperzels iirc, and it has a roller- or graphtech nut.

                I'm sure the database on the Korean/International cort site (www.cort.co.kr) will be up and running by tomorrow, so you'll be able to check there soon enough.

                    What was the mini toggle for?
                    Coil Tap?

                    Pics show it being the tone control. Push/pull design.
                    Push down for full humbucking. Pull up for single coil mode.

                    My Fernandes Ravelle Deluxe has the same thing.

                    Push/pull tone knob instead of a switch.

                        Sorry I didn't catch the post sooner.

                        *For 2005 Cort stopped using the rosewood skunk stripe to leave a clean, one-piece birdseye maple neck.
                        *They also softened the highly asymmetrical waist that the g-series is known for.
                        *Again, the mini-toggle takes the place of the push-pull pot for the dual mode bridge pickup.
                        *The truss rod is now adjusted on the bridge-end of the neck via a recessed spoke-wheel nut.
                        *The fretboard radius has been 12" since 2003, so that spec list is definitely out-dated.
                        *They started using glossy chrome hardware in '04 and continue to use it in '05
                        *The strap button has been moved to the traditional place--on the tip of the bass-end horn.

                        That's all I can think of off-hand. Most every change they've made seems to be for the better. I will miss the satin chrome hardware and Wilkinson trem though...

                              He looks quite good yes, but I like the G290 way better
