The Core Series is sure to deliver the performance and tone every player has envisioned in a great acoustic guitar.
Cort’s Core Series acoustic guitars are designed with simplicity in mind. Their 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.
Based on the revered vintage parlor body guitars from the 1930’s, the 14th fret neck-body joint with 24.75” (628) neck scale not only imparts a vintage look and feel, but produces a prominent low-end and surprisingly loud volume for a guitar of its compact size which is quickly becoming popular among players of many different genres and playing styles.
Developed in accordance with recent acoustic guitar market trends, this model features not only mahogany back and sides but mahogany top as well. Although darker sounding than spruce, mahogany produces a warmer tone with a full rich mid-range.
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.
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.
A rounder 12” (305) fingerboard radius is applied for easier and comfortable playability when holding a chord. Not only does the open pore finish enhance the resonance of the woods but it also reduces the weight of the guitar for improved playability.
