Cort has announced the Gold Mini, a downsized version of its Gold D6 dreadnought, which aims to provide its best features at a three-quarter size.
The Gold Mini features all-solid woods throughout, boasting a torrefied ATV (Aged To Vintage) Adirondack spruce top - complete with “sonically enhanced” UV finish - and mahogany back, sides and neck.
Two strips of walnut are used to reinforce the neck, which also features the Gold Series’ new neck profile, with rounded fingerboard edges.
A 19-fret, 22.8-inch scale length promises to make this one a good choice for travellers or players with small hands.
Also of note is the double-lock neck joint - a dovetail reinforced by an added bolt - while Macassar ebony is used for the fretboard and bridge.
Elsewhere, there’s an abalone rosette and black binding with triple-ply purfling, plus die-cast 18:1 ratio gold tuners. We dig that new headstock logo, too.
The Gold Mini is available now for $799, and an electro version will also be launched - see Cort Guitars for more info.
