NAMM 2017: Baritones have been sneaking back into popular guitar consciousness over the past few years, and in the acoustic guitar realm, Cort reckons it's developed the easiest-to-play baritone guitar yet, the NDX Baritone.
Cort's latest acoustic electric guitar boasts an elongated 27" scale length, which promises to make it easier to play and stay in tune with a traditional baritone tuning (B E A D F# B). It's "a unique playing experience", apparently.
Like the company's other NDX models, the baritone features a Florentine cutaway for enhanced upper-fret access, as well as a deep body shape (up to 125mm) and scallop x-bracing for improved resonance.
Elsewhere, the guitar packs a solid Sitka spruce top, mahogany back and sides, rosewood fingerboard, Grover tuners and Fishman Presys Blend EQ with Sonicore pickup, which includes a microphone for blending with the under-saddle pickup.
The NDX Baritone is available soon for $699.99.
