cort guitars

So you never heard of Cort before, then stop and think again. Cort are a company that carry a lot more weight in the guitar industry than you might realise, aside from their own brand of guitars and amps they manufacturer more than one million guitars and 300,000 amplifiers per year worldwide for such companies as G&L, Ibanez and Fender. Their instruments have passed through the hands of countless players and many generations, many without knowing.

Cort Gold D8 Acoustic Guitar Gloss Natural

The hallmark of Cort’s Gold series is the Aged to Vintage (ATV) treatment that allows the Grade A+ solid Sitka spruce top to cure and open up more over time. ATV acts as a torrefaction process, giving the Gold-D8 a big, open tone that’s bright, yet natural with a strong and warm midrange that’s reinforced by the solid Pau Ferro back and sides. A sonically enhanced UV finish protects both the instrument and tonal quality, and is now Natural Gloss finish.

AGED TO VINTAGE TOP: 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 that we call ATV (Aged To Vintage) we 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.

SOLID SITKA SPRUCE TOP(MASTER GRADE): Featuring superior strength and dense grains along with the flexibility to resonate freely, the premium grade solid Sitka spruce top on the Gold Series is ideal for virtually any musical genre with a brilliant and clear high-end, warm and rich midrange, and a deep but tight low-end for a beautifully balanced sound.

SOLID PAU FERRO BACK AND SIDES: Pau Ferro, also known as Morado, Santos Rosewood or Bolivian Rosewood boasts many of the qualities that are highly regarded in tonewood that is close to Indian Rosewood. It's stable, abrasion resistant, hard, attractive, exotic and has good impression strength parallel to the grain.

DOUBLE LOCK NECK JOINT: The connection between a guitar’s neck and body is another key factor for great sound. On the Gold, we started with a tight fitting traditional dovetail neck joint. We then reinforced it by adding a bolt. This Double Lock neck joint maximizes the transfer of tone and enhances resonance on the Gold.

WALNUT REINFORCED NECK: The neck on the Gold has been reinforced for added rigidity and stability using two special inserts. This is constructed with two pieces of walnut installed to add stability while still retaining the natural properties of wood to further upgrade the Gold.

EBONY FINGERBOARD: There are many types of woods that are used for fingerboard but no other compares to the jet-black beauty and slick smoothness of Ebony.

EBONY BRIDGE PINS: The high density of Ebony wood keeps the fundamental acoustic sound focused and tight with greater sonic projection than plastic, enhancing the transfer of the string vibrations throughout the soundboard top, body and the neck.

GENUINE BONE NUT & SADDLE: For the most natural and organic sound and feel, there is nothing quite like genuine bone for the saddle and the nut, two critical contact points for the strings to vibrate freely and transfer that energy into the woods of the guitar.

SONICALLY ENHANCED UV FINISH: The high-tech finish is strong and resistant to scratches while being lightweight to improve the natural acoustic resonance of the body for a full-bodied and rich tone.

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.
