Allthough it's my own choice at the end. Your advice would be welcome. I own a 15 year old Norman ST68 equipped with a shadow p4 pickup. Last day I went to the guitar store for a maintenance job. They told me the guitar needs new frets. Max 300 euro's in costs.
After playing with some new Cort guitars, I'm convinced that the Norman needs maintenance. So the choice is or buy a new one (budget around 700 euro's) or put some new life in my Norman.
ps the Norman has no cut a way. I would seek that in a new one.
