Cort has expanded its Core series of acoustic guitars with three new electric acoustic models, the Core GA-Blackwood, Core-DC Mahogany and Core-PE Mahogany.

First, the Core GA-Blackwood features a never-before-seen grand auditorium-style shape with a Venetian-style cutaway, constructed using – you guessed it – black wood. Cort promises a tonal blend of multiple woods with this material, featuring “the rich bass of mahogany, the brilliance of maple, and the ethereal accents of rosewood.”

True to the 1930s parlor acoustics on which it is based, the Core-PE Mahogany features a historically accurate pyramid bridge, 14-fret neck-to-body articulation, and vintage open-gear tuners with knobs ivory.
In terms of scale, the Core-DC Mahogany measures 25.3″, while the Core-PE Mahogany is understandably smaller at 24.75″.
All three guitars are equipped with Fishman Sonitone EQ systems – which include simple volume and tone controls – as well as hand-scalloped X-bracings, weight-saving open-pore finishes, and bone bone nuts and saddles. water buffalo for the “more natural and seamless transfer of vibrational energy from the strings into the body and neck”.
In terms of price, the Core-DC Mahogany retails for $899, while the Core-GA Blackwood and Core-PE Mahogany both retail for $999. For more information, visit Cort Guitars.
