Core-GA Blackwood Open Pore Light Burst
Introduced in 2020, the Core Series guitars enjoyed its fast growing popularity thanks to its focus and dedication on what truly makes acoustic guitars great: keeping it simple yet elegant, with great playability and natural acoustic sound. Cort continues the same effort with the introduction of Core-GA Blackwood, a new body style all- solid acoustic guitar that follows the same discipline and focus that made the previous Core Series so much more enjoyable and valuable.
The Core Essential
Cort’s new Core Series acoustic guitars are designed with simplicity in mind. Our main goal was to shed away any non-essential flashy features and stay focused on what truly makes acoustic guitars great. The result is an all-solid acoustic guitar, built with Cort’s world-class craftsmanship, that looks simple yet elegant with great playability and natural acoustic sound. The new Core Series is sure to deliver the performance and tone every player has envisioned in a great acoustic guitar.
Auditorium Cutaway Body Type
With dimensions of 117㎜(4 5/8") body depth, upper bout width at 292㎜ (11 1/2") and lower bout width at 405㎜(16"), the Auditorium body size is perfectly in between the large Dreadnought and the more intimate Grand Concert. This makes the Auditorium body type ideal for both strumming/flatpicking and fingerstyle playing and suits the versatile acoustic player who prefers to have one guitar to cover a variety of sounds and playing styles.
All Solid Blackwood Model
The characteristic of the blackwood is similar to an ideal blend of several tonewoods. Rich low-end of mahogany, the brightness of maple and the ethereal overtones of rosewood. Blackwood is good for both strumming and fingerpicking, with responsive clarity and power that comes from its dense characteristics.
Ovangkol Fretboard with Mahogany Neck
Known as a great overall tone wood, Ovangkol shares similar tone characteristics as Rosewood with a warm and slightly fuller midrange. The combination of Ovangkol fretboard with Mahogany neck produces a warmer mixture of balanced tone with deep sustain that is suitable for an acoustic guitar.
Installed internally without cutting out any of the woods, the Sonitone EQ system retains all the natural resonance and the pure acoustic sound that other systems aren’t capable of. The controls are simple and intuitive to use as well, with just Volume and Tone.
Open Pore FinishNot only does the open pore finish enhance the resonance of the woods but it also reduces the weight of the guitar for improved playability
Exclusive Deluxe Soft-Side Case
The new Cort Deluxe Soft- Side Case is not only stylish and sleek but combines the best attributes of a hard case with the flexibility of a padded gig-bag for superb protection for the instrument as well as excellent portability.
