Cort adds Grand Auditorium to Gold series acoustics
Less than a year after launching its Gold Series with Dreadnought and Orchestra sized styles, Cort Guitars has announced the introduction of the Cort Gold A6 with a Grand Auditorium body.
Cort says its Gold A6: ‘…delivers a full-bodied, well-balanced tone that suits virtually any musical style and taste. One of the advantages of the Grand Auditorium body is its 45mm genuine bone nut and saddle, ideal for fingerstyle playing. Cort’s premium materials are showcased in softer melodies’.
Showing how confident it is of the Gold A6’s performance, Cort has chosen a pro-class transducer system for the new model, the Fishman Flex Blend System, which combines an under-saddle pickup with a condenser mic to reproduce the guitar’s acoustic tone.
The Gold A6 also features Cort’s Aged to Vintage (ATV) torrefaction treatment which allows the Gold A6’s pre-aged solid sitka spruce top to cure and open up more over time.
Other features include hand-scalloped X-bracing to lighten the weight and enhance top vibration. Cort has also chosen a tight-fitting traditional dovetail neck joint reinforced with a bolt, creating a DoubleLock neck that it says maximises the transfer of tone and enhances resonance. The Gold A6’s mahogany neck is reinforced with walnut for added stability. The Macassar ebony fretboard matches the material choice for the bridge with ebony pins. Nodding to the ‘Gold’ moniker, Deluxe Vintage Gold Tuners accent the headstock.
