Cort’s vision of alternatives to the popular dreadnought shape, the Luce Series offers smaller body size shapes like OM, Concert and Parlor that are easier to hold and play while providing a more balanced sound. An ideal balance between classic vintage looks from the golden age of guitars and modern yet practical features, the L450CL provides the best of both worlds in perfect harmony with the concert body shape, solid Mahogany top, Solid Mahogany back and Mahogany sides, Ovangkol fingerboard, LR Baggs EAS-VTC electronics.
All Mahogany Model
Developed in accordance with recent acoustic guitar market trends, this model features not only mahogany back and sides but mahogany top as well. Although darker sounding than spruce, mahogany produces a warmer tone with a full rich midrange. Solid Mahogany for top and back.
Solid Mahogany Back
The solid mahogany back enhances body resonance and helps produce greater volume.
Snowflake Fingerboard Inlay
Another vintage-style appointment, the snowflake inlay also adds a high-end look in an understated manner.
Known for its natural sound, the L.R. Baggs system is elegantly simple with only Volume and Tone controls. The guitar’s solid top and back’s acoustic resonance is fully picked up by the preamp and conveyed in a totally transparent manner to an amplifier or the PA system.
Concert Body Shape
The Concert body size is smaller and produces a more focused and balanced sound than the Dreadnaught with less emphasis on the bass and a strong midrange with clearer and sweeter highs. This sonic balance of the Concert body makes it ideal for fingerpicking as well as solo single-note playing.
