As Cort’s homage to the great vintage acoustic guitars, the Earth Series represents the look, sound, feel and playability of those fine instruments with uncompromising quality and excellent value. Earth100PF produces a quick transient attack with a dry yet bright tone and an emphasis on the treble side of the sonic spectrum. The responsiveness of Pau Ferro suits a variety of body shapes and different top woods exceptionally well to produce a wide range of sounds.
SOLID SITKA SPRUCE TOP
It can be said that Sitka Spruce is the most common and traditional tone wood used for tops on acoustic guitars due to its rigidity and superb strength-to-weight ratio. This characteristic provides very dynamic sensitivity as well as a sound that is rich in harmonic overtones and allows the top to handle powerful strumming as well as delicate fingerpicking. The versatility of Sitka Spruce makes it ideal for various musical genres and styles but is especially well suited for flatpicking due to its focused sound and projection. Visually, the grains of this wood are uniform and has a wide range of colors.
PAU FERRO BACK & SIDES
Sometimes referred to as Bolivian Rosewood, Santos Rosewood, and Morado, Pau Ferro sometimes exudes an exotic look with its colorful mixture of brown, yellow and black in its figuring from a relatively smaller sized lumber. Due to its higher density and weight relative to Rosewood, Pau Ferro produces a quick transient attack with a dry yet bright tone and an emphasis on the treble side of the sonic spectrum. The responsiveness of Pau Ferro suits a variety of body shapes and different top woods exceptionally well to produce a wide range of sounds.
GENUINE BONE NUT AND SADDLE
Crafted out of water buffalo bone for the most natural and transparent transfer of string vibrational energy into the body and neck.
The exclusive scooped surface bridge from Cort enhances sustain with greater string angle from the saddle to the body while reducing tension on the strings across the neck were less finger fatigue and improved playability.
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.
