You might try a Fender Aerodyne then. It has a jazz bass neck with a 7.25“ radius to the fingerboard - more curved than the standard 9.5” radius on other Fender Jazz necks.I don't know anything about Cort basses. A good place to search for information about basses in talkbass:http://www.talkbass.com

I will check out that site thx.

they do make lefty but the shop is 100 miles away… and buying a guitar you have never played is risky, you might hate it?

I've just had a great idea, the best bass I ever owned by far, and I've had a few, was a Hohner B2A, it was a copy of the innovative Stienberger from the 80s. The Stienberger was made from carbon graphite, had no headstock and tuned from the body end. The Hohner was made completely from Maple and had EMG selects and the tone was awesome. It's a long scale bass but it's very small and really easy to play and it has three strap buttons so you can play left or right handed, there's no problem with changing the nut to left handed cos it doesn't have one, instead it has a special string retainer and a zero fret. It has double ball end strings which are all the same length, to go lefty simply take them off and change them around. My god I want another one! Downside, they retail around £700 but you could look out for a second hand one, have a look on ebay

Steinberger/Hohner sounds interesting? if its that easy to setup.

I live in County Durham. I loved my Hohner. Hohner are a Japanese company that make quality instruments, their harmonicas are amongst the best in the world and the B2A is an excellent bass

Oh ok. Upon further examination of the photo I see that it's right handed. My mistake.

My Fender Precision MIM gives me all the sound I need. Picked it up for $125 with trade in of my Cort action which never felt right
