Cort L300VF Acoustic Guitar
Cort announces the availability of the new L300VF acoustic guitar, featuring solid Adirondack spruce top.
Cort 20th Anniversary Earth Guitars
This new guitar is an affordable tribute to acoustic guitars of the '30s (i.e. vintage Martin guitars), which are considered by many as the golden era of acoustic guitar making.
Guitars from the '30s are sought after because of their top notch wood and build. Big name guitar manufacturers easily put a high premium on reproduction models that are based on designs from this era. Thankfully, Cort Guitars was somehow able to get inspiration from the old design while keeping the price tag accessible. The L300VF is part of Cort's Luce series, a collection of instruments that take classic guitar design as their inspiration.
For its price tag, this new guitar comes with tone woods found only on expensive instruments. It sports an all-solid wood OM body construction, with solid Adirondack spruce top supported by solid mahogany back and sides. Even the scalloped X bracing is made from Adirondack spruce! Adding to the guitar's vintage flair is the tortoise body binding and "Teardrop Wildcat Yellow" pickguard.
The neck is made of mahogany and topped by a rosewood fretboard. It has a 25.3" scale length and a nut width of 45mm. Traditional white dot inlays serve as fretboard markers. Grover Vintage Tuners complete the '30s appearance of the Cort L300VF, not to mention that they also keep the strings in tune.
Since it is much more convenient to plug in an acoustic guitar than have it mic'ed when performing on stage, Cort modernized the '30s concept by equipping the guitar with Fishman Sonitone EQ preamp system. Those that prefer un-modified true-to-form acoustic guitars can go for the non-electrified alternative model L300V.
The new L300VF is now available with a price tag of $645. You can visit Cort Guitars for more information.
