Cort has released the Gold-OC8 Nylon, the first classical model to join its flagship Gold Series of acoustic guitars.
Touted as “a modern take on the oldest form of guitar,” the Gold-OC8 Nylon boasts an Orchestra Model design with a Venetian cutaway and internal hand-scalloped X-bracing.
The guitar features a series-first Engelmann spruce top treated using an Aged to Vintage (ATV) torrefication process and solid pau ferro back and sides with black binding with triple-ply purfling.
There’s also a mahogany neck reinforced with two pieces of walnut and connected to the body with a tight-fitting traditional dovetail neck joint reinforced with an added bolt, and a 20-fret ebony fingerboard with a 25.3-inch scale.
Other features include an ebony bridge, genuine bone nut and saddle and Cort Vintage Classic tuners.
Electronics, meanwhile, are a Fishman Flex Blend preamp system featuring an under-saddle pickup with a condensed microphone and a built-in tuner.
The Gold-OC8 Nylon is offered with a Deluxe Soft-Side case for $1,499.99.
