A vintage instrument is the holy grail of acoustic guitar tone. The wood on the top cures and opens up more over time. This unleashes a tonal quality that is missing in new instruments – until now. Using a special process Cort calls ATV (Aged To Vintage), they treat the solid sitka spruce top to give it that big and open tone of a decades-old, highly-sought-after acoustic. This torrefaction process delivers that amazing tone to you right out of the box.
Best known for its majestic wood grain patterns, the exotic Bocote comes from the same family as Ziricote and is found in the similar region (Central America to Northern Amazon). Tonally speaking, Bocote is more similar to rosewood and has warm, deep bass, broad spectrum of mids, and plenty of good volume with long sustain. Bocote is a perfect match for the premium grade solid Sitka spruce top found in our Gold Series, with a brilliant and clear high-end, warm and rich midrange, and a deep but tight low-end for a beautifully balanced combination of tones.
The Gold-OC6 Bocote features a classic OM cutaway body style. This body style initially developed in the 1920’s captures the prized pre-war era tone that is often sought after. Sonically it delivers a sound that is larger than its compact size would hint at and with a level of dynamic responsiveness that makes it a joy to play.
With a sophisticated modern design and innovative technical engineering, the Fishman® Flex Blend System offers a wide range of sonic control along with a built-in tuner. Volume, Tone, Phase, Blend and Tuner functions are all available from three knobs and the tuner display. You can also adjust the Tone knob to best suit fingerpicking or strumming techniques without feedback issues and other sonic anomalies while delivering the most natural acoustic sound to your amplification system.
