Cort Introduces ‘Aged to Vintage’ series
Cort has introduced its new 200 ATV (Aged to Vintage) series of acoustic guitars, featuring basic designs: ‘but all the key enhancements that improve sound quality. Guitars in the ATV Series deliver a tone that has previously been missing in new instruments’, the maker claims.
Cort’s new L200ATV, has a 1¾’’ nut width for easier fingerstyle playing. The smaller, orchestra model body is a 1920s style design that delivers a sound that Cort says is larger than its compact size indicates. The L200ATV’s ‘vintage’ tone is derived from its torrefied solid Sitka spruce top and hand-scalloped x-bracing.
The L200ATV’s back and sides are pau ferro, a South American tone wood that has a thick midrange, tonally similar to Indian rosewood, Cort says. ‘Exotically attractive, pau ferro also boasts good impression strength parallel to the grain’. The guitar also sports an ebony fretboard, bridge and bridge pins to keep the fundamental acoustic sound focused and tight.
While the focus of the L200ATV is its vintage tone, Cort has opted for a deliberately old-school aesthetic, the woods are offset with a white binding, white dot inlays and a multi-ply rosette, along with a genuine bone nut and saddle. Grover Vintage tuners complement the classic look of the model.
