Cort 20th Anniversary Earth Acoustic Guitars
Cort celebrates the 20th anniversary of their Earth series guitars by releasing two limited edition acoustics.
Cort Sunset Semi-Hollow
The first model is a top of the line acoustic with high end specs, the Earth-LE2 MD. The second limited run model is more affordable, called the Earth 20th.
These new acoustics follow the general theme of Cort's Earth series, which is to replicate the look and feel of vintage dreadnought shaped acoustics.
To distinguish them from the pack, the 20th Anniversary Earth models have special features, including a 20th Anniversary logo inside the soundhole, and they are only available in limited numbers.
Cort Earth-LE2 MD
Cort is mostly known for their affordable guitars, but they strayed from their path with this particular model. Bearing a tag price of $2,225, the new Earth-LE2 MD is now among their most expensive instruments and carries with it high-end materials, top-of-the-line aesthetics and quality construction.
The guitar's dreadnought body starts with solid Madagascar Rosewood back and sides. The top is carved from master grade solid Sitka Spruce, which completes the Earth-LE2 MD's special wood combination, normally only found among more expensive models. The 3-piece neck is made of mahogany and rosewood, topped by an Indian rosewood fingerboard. Added aesthetics are provided by the flamed maple binding for the body and neck. Other features include GraphTech TUSQ nut and saddle, Goto tuners and detailed abalone inlays.
Cort Earth 20th
This limited edition guitar comes with a price tag that Cort guitars are more familiar with, from $349 - $375 depending on the finish.
This affordable but special guitar features Australian blackwood back and sides which are gron in the Victorian Otway ranges. This wood is said to resemble the look and response of Hawaiian Koa but is more readily available and renewable. It supports the guitar's solid sitka spruce top which gives it a traditional tone with some distinct flavors. Other features include a mahogany neck with rosewood fingerboard and GraphTech Nubone XB for the nut and saddle.
