Cort are a company that carry a lot more weight in the guitar industry than you might realise, aside from their own catalogue of electric, acoustic and bass guitars they are the go to guys for high quality production of lower priced guitars in Asia. Building guitars for G&L, Ibanez, Squier and even Avalon, their instruments have passed through the hands of countless players.
The Gold Series A8 is one of the flagship models in the Cort acoustic collection. The hallmark of Cort's Gold series is the Aged to Vintage (ATV) treatment that allows the Master Grade solid Sitka spruce top to cure and open up more over time. ATV acts as a Torrification process, giving the Gold-A8 a big, open tone that's bright, yet natural with a strong and warm midrange that's reinforced by the solid Pau Ferro back and sides.
The Mahogany neck boasts an Ebony fingerboard for an alternative take on the classic GA vibe. It's a really well-crafted guitar that definitely competes with others in this price point. It even comes complete with a Deluxe soft side gig bag for protection on the road and at home. Loaded with a Fishman Flex Blend pickup system the A8 is ready to hit the stage!
