Cort Guitars unveil the new L900-PD, a small body parlor guitar with solid cedar top and vintage style specs.

Cort L900P-PD

After having built many guitars for other big brands, Cort has been putting more effort into their own brand of instruments. And the L900P-PD is just one of the latest to come out of their facility which does not have other brands stamped on the headstock.

Although wrapped in controversy, Cort Guitars have been one of the primary sources of quality affordable guitars that we see in the market today. If a major brand labels their instrument as Made in Korea, chances are, it is manufactured by Cort.

Having the designs of multiple brands on their hands, and at the same time meeting the quality standards have put the company in a good position to produce quality guitars that are more affordable. And that is exactly what they've been doing, churning out affordable instruments with reasonable quality.

The L900-PD showcases just what Cort can do, combining vintage style specs and visuals with modern day production, resulting in a reliable and affordable old school looking guitar. It is part of Cort's Luce Series which feature non-dreadnought shaped acoustic guitars.

The body of this guitar is crafted from solid cedar, which is a great wood of choice for smaller bodied acoustics, because the mellower and warmer tone will complement the midrange and boxy tone of its parlor shape body. The resulting sound is said to be ideal for fingerpickers, because of its stronger low-end, clarity and good volume.

The back and sides are crafted from Paldao, a hard and dense wood that is similar to Koa in appearance, while complementing the upper middle frequencies further, which in turn gives the LP900-PD a cutting acoustic tone.

The neck is crafted from mahogany and topped by a 19-fret rosewood fingerboard. It joins the body at the 12th fret following old school designs, and in keeping with its fingerpicking style friendly design, the nut is slightly wider at 1.75". Scale length is 25.3", which is just a tad bit shorter than regular sized acoustics, reducing the need for playing adjustments when switching between parlor and regular sized guitars.

The headstock features a slotted design, as seen on pre-war parlor guitars from the '20s. The strings are kept in tune by Grover Vintage machine heads, and both the nut and saddle are crafted from real water buffalo bone. Other features include triangular vintage style head volute, rosewood bridge, avalon rosette, and white binding and snowflake inlays.

The new Cort L900P-PD parlor guitar is currently retailing for $699 and is available in vintage sunburst finish. For more information on the new Cort L900P-PD, you can head over to Cort Guitars.
