Cort Guitars is one of the most respected names in guitar manufacturing, and these Cort Acoustic Guitars are no exception. Cort has been making acoustic guitars since 1881, and these 10 acoustic guitar models have the prestigious Cort name stamped on them.

Cort acoustic guitars are hand-built in Cort's factory in Portugal, and each one is carefully crafted using high-quality woods, hardware, and parts. These acoustic guitars can be played for both acoustic and electric purposes, and each one is handcrafted by skilled craftsmen who put the same care into each acoustic guitar that Cort makes.

We tested these acoustic guitars for playability, tone, and build quality. We tested for playability by strumming, picking, fingerpicking, and strumming chord shapes. We also tested the tone by strummed chords and picking individual notes. Finally, we test build quality by evaluating the overall craftsmanship, including how the guitar feels, how it sounds, and how well its components fit together.

Our top pick is the Cort CF-30T, which is crafted from solid spruce. This guitar has a tone that's rich and warm, with a crisp, clear high end. It also has easy action, making it easy to play, and its lightweight body makes it comfortable to play for long periods of time.

Cort 6 String Acoustic Guitar, Right Handed, 7/8 Dreadnought (EARTH 50 OP)

Cort 6 String Acoustic Guitar

by Cort

Short Scale easy play 7/8 sized dreadnought Body

The Cort 6 String Acoustic Guitar is a nice, solid acoustic that performs well and sounds excellent. It's an excellent choice for its price, and many players will appreciate the instrument's solid build. Its ovangkol fingerboard and bridge provide excellent sustain, and the instrument's mahogany back & sides give it a warm, rich sound. The guitar's rosewood fingerboard and bridge provide a nice, smooth finish, and the Mahogany neck feels thick, sturdy, and well-balanced. It's easy to play, and the guitar's tuners are sturdy and reliable. The only drawback to the instrument is its tuner pegs. They feel cheap, and they tend to loosen up over time. The guitar is also fairly heavy, and it's a little difficult to lift it off the floor or carry it around. We like the Cort 6 String Acoustic Guitar, but we think it's a little overpriced. It charges $300 more than the Yamaha FG700S, and that guitar is a much better value.

The Cort Retro VSM is a well-made, affordable acoustic-electric guitar that's suitable for any player. It has a solid spruce top that responds well to fingerpicked or strumming, and it plays and sounds great. The mahogany back and sides give it a richer tone than the Sitka spruce used in our budget pick, the Fender AJ-220S, and the mahogany neck is a more comfortable fit for players with smaller hands. The Retro VSM also has Fishman's Neo D electronics, which are among the best preamps you'll find at this price. The pickup provides plenty of volume, so the instrument is easy to amplify for live performances. The pickup isn't as versatile as the Fender AJ-220S's Fishman Isys+ system, but it's adequate for most playing situations. The Retro VSM has a beautiful, retro-inspired design, and the guitar's gloss finish looks classy and stands up to regular use. The guitar has a slimmer neck than its competitors, so it's more comfortable for smaller players.
