The Core-OC Blackwood is part of Cort’s premium Core series of all-solid acoustic guitars. Featuring quality materials, components and workmanship, this guitar is designed to improve with age like fine wine. If outstanding sound quality is your top priority, then the Core Series should feature high on your options list.

Cort’s new Core Series acoustic guitars are designed with simplicity in mind. The main goal with this series was to shed any non-essential flashy features and stay focused on what truly makes acoustic guitars great. The result is a range of all-solid acoustic guitars, built with Cort’s world-class craftsmanship to combine simple yet elegant looks with great playability and natural acoustic sound. The Core Series delivers the performance and tone every player envisions in a great acoustic guitar.


The tonal characteristics of Blackwood combine the qualities of several tonewoods: The rich low-end of Mahogany melds with the brightness of Maple and the stunning overtones of Rosewood. Blackwood is a fantastic tonewood for both strumming and fingerstyle. As with the finest acoustic guitars, the tonewoods are all-solid - meaning that no laminates are used for the top, back or sides. The result is a guitar which will mature with time and playing, making ownership a journey of improvement for both the guitarist and guitar.


The Core OC Blackwood has a compact OM body, ideal for players with a small body frame or seeking playing comfort. The bright and stronger high-midrange emphasis rewards intricate playing styles. The Venetian cutaway on this model allows easy access to the high frets.


The Cort Core-OC Blackwood’s nut and saddle are both crafted from water buffalo bone for the most natural and transparent transfer of string vibrational energy into the body and neck. Known as a great overall tone wood, Ovangkol shares similar tone characteristics as Rosewood with a warm and slightly fuller midrange. The combination of Ovangkol fretboard with Mahogany neck produces a warmer mixture of balanced tone with deep sustain. The open pore finish not only enhances the resonance of the woods but it also reduces the weight of the guitar for improved playability.


Installed internally without cutting out any of the woods, the Sonitone EQ system retains all the natural resonance and the pure acoustic sound so prized in an acoustic guitar. The controls are simple and intuitive to use, with Volume and Tone controls accessible from the sound hole. An internally-mounted battery pack maintains the discreet look.


The Deluxe Soft-Side Case is not only stylish and sleek but combines the best attributes of a hard case with the flexibility of a padded gig-bag for superb protection for the instrument as well as excellent portability.
