The slightly shallower body depth (82*104mm) spec was matched to the Martin OM bodies of the 1930’s. The Cort L300VF is an all solid guitar and sounds like it should be £300 more than it actually is.
The top of the Cort L300VF is made from Adirondack spruce which is stronger and denser than Sitka spruce, giving broad dynamics as well as articulation and smoothness at high volume. The elastic tactile response suits both aggressive strumming and precise flatpicking. Adirondack spruce bracing further sets apart the unique sound and response of this exceptional wood. Famously used on the sought-after vintage Martin dreadnaughts of the 1930’s, the difficult-to-source Adirondack spruce is the crowning feature of this model at a most reasonable price.
Cort L300VF at a Glance:
Solid Mahogany Back & Sides
Bright yet natural with a strong and warm midrange, the beloved mahogany wood has been a standard for back and sides on premium acoustics for many decades. The solid mahogany back enhances body resonance and helps produce greater volume..
Tortoise Shell Binding
For that authentic vintage look, tortoise shell binding adorns the body to complement the overall aesthetics.
45mm Nut Width
A slightly wider nut width that makes it easier for fingerstyle playing.
Genuine Bone Nut & Saddle
Crafted out of water buffalo bone for the most natural and transparent transfer of string vibrational energy into the body and neck.
To match the golden aged look of the guitars from the 1930’s, a specially formulated toner is applied to the top.
Sonically Enhanced UV Finish
The high-tech finish is strong and resistant to scratches while being lightweight to improve the natural acoustic resonance of the body for a full-bodied and rich tone.
Fishman Sonitone EQ
Installed internally without cutting out any of the woods, the Sonitone EQ system retains all the natural resonance and the pure acoustic sound that other systems can’t. The controls are simple to use as well with only Volume and Tone.
