New Gear Review: Cort Guitars L300V and L300VF


At the 2014 Winter NAMM Show Cort Guitars introduced two new acoustics in their Luce Series, the OM body L300V and the L300VF.

The L300V (pictured) features solid Adirondack spruce top and bracing, solid mahogany back, and mahogany sides. There is tortoise body binding, teardrop-shaped wildcat pick guard and a natural finish with vintage toner. The mahogany neck is topped with a rosewood fret board, and Grover vintage tuning machines. Each L300V has a genuine bone nut and saddle and also ships with a set of D’Addario EXP16 acoustic guitar strings.

The L300VF is exactly the same but comes with the Fishman Sonitone EQ and Sonicore Pickup systems. The L300V sells for $535 MSRP while the L300VF sells for $645.
