The Cort Gold O6 Orchestra Guitar was designed with a total focus on sound. Cart is proud to say this is the best acoustic guitar that they've ever built. You will hear the difference with your first strum. That great tone you hear is a culmination of many meticulous details and superior craftsmanship.
A vintage instrument is the holy grail of acoustic guitar tone. The wood on the top cures and opens up more over time. This unleashes a tonal quality that is missing in new instruments — until now. Using a special process that Cort calls ATV (Aged To Vintage) they treat the solid sitka spruce top of the Gold O6 Orchetra Guitar to give it the big and open tone of a decades-old, highly-sought-after acoustic. This torrefaction process delivers that amazing tone to you right out of the box.Thin Finish, Big Tone
With the Cort Gold O6 Orchestra guitar, the South Korean guitar manufacturer went to great lengths to craft a bold-sounding instrument. To assure all of that tone came through, they use a special UV finishing process that is thinner and designed to be less constrictive on the instrument. The Gold O6’s beautiful gloss finish is part of its sonic excellence.Next-Level Neck
The connection between a guitar’s neck and body is another key factor for great sound. On the Gold O6, Cort started with a tight-fitting traditional dovetail neck joint. It's then reinforced by an added bolt. Cort's DoubleLock neck joint maximizes the transfer of tone and enhances the resonance on the Gold O6. The neck has been reinforced for added rigidity and stability using two special inserts. This is constructed with two pieces of walnut installed to add stability while still retaining the natural properties of wood to further upgrade the Gold O6.
