Main Cort Gold Guitar

Hear the Details

The Cort Gold was designed with a total focus on sound. This is the best acoustic guitar that we have ever built. You will hear the difference with your first strum. That great tone you hear is a culmination of many meticulous details and superior craftsmanship.


A vintage instrument is the holy grail of acoustic guitar tone. The wood on the top cures and opens up more over time. This unleashes a tonal quality that is missing in new instruments — until now. Using a special process that we call ATV (Aged To Vintage) we treat the solid sitka spruce top to give it that big and open tone of a decades-old, highly-sought-after acoustic. This torrefaction process delivers that amazing tone to you right out of the box.


With the Gold, we went to great lengths to craft a bold sounding instrument. We wanted to assure that all of that tone came through. We use a special UV finishing process that is thinner and designed to be less constrictive on the instrument. The Gold’s beautiful gloss finish is part of its sonic excellence.

The connection between a guitar’s neck and body is another key factor for great sound. On the Gold, we started with a tight fitting traditional dovetail neck joint. We then reinforced it by adding a bolt. This DoubleLock neck joint maximizes the transfer of tone and enhances resonance on the Gold.


The neck on the Gold has been reinforced for added rigidity and stability using two special inserts. This is constructed with two pieces of walnut installed to add stability while still retaining the natural properties of wood to further upgrade the Gold.

Comfortable Neck

We developed a new profile for added comfort and playability for the Gold. You will notice extra details like the rounded fingerboard edge. The neck has the comfortable feel of a lovingly played vintage instrument, broken in to fit just right in your hands.

Genuine Bone Nut & Saddle

With sound as the priority and focus, we selected real bone for these vital parts that are responsible for the transfer of resonance between strings and the instrument.

Aggressively Scalloped Bracing

To further open up the big sound of the Gold we spent extra time on the bracing. We started with a modernized X-bracing and then scalloped it to lighten it and free up added top vibration.
