Cort Guitars debuts ‘Aged to Vintage’ guitar series with the L200ATV
The first model from the brand’s ATV line sports a familiar look, but boasts enhancements to its sound quality.
Cort has introduced its ATV (Aged to Vintage) series of acoustic guitars, and the first model out of the blocks is the orchestra-sized L200ATV acoustic guitar.
The L200ATV is designed to recreate a ‘vintage tone,’ according to the South Korean company. To achieve that, the guitar’s solid Sitka spruce top underwent a torrefaction process that, Cort says, allows it to “open up more over time, resulting in the big, open tone of a decades-old acoustic, but delivered in a new instrument.”
But if you’re worried that the price for sounding like a billion won is a guitar that looks like it got smuggled through the DMZ—don’t. Besides the top wood, the L200ATV features pau ferro back and sides, a mahogany neck, and an ebony fretboard. White binding, dot inlays and a multi-ply ivory rosette are the other eye-catching appointments of the guitar.
The L200ATV retails for $549.99. For more information, check out cortguitars.com.
