Cort AD880 CE Acoustic Electric Guitar

By PAUL BOTHNER MUSIC | November 30, 2017

Cort guitars have a reputation for being the best quality guitars in their price range. Everything from the workmanship to the components is of world-class quality, and the AD880 CE is the perfect embodiment of this philosophy.

We’ve all been there. You want a new acoustic guitar, but you’re feeling overwhelmed by all the choices available. People throw jargon like “dreadnought” or “jumbo” around. One of your mates says you need something with a pickup while another claims that it’s just a waste. All of this can make what should be a fun experience into an exercise in frustration.
The Cort AD880 CE is the perfect acoustic guitar for those who are undecided. It has a great tone, is easy to play, and is versatile enough to handle most situations.

Do you need a pickup?

Yes. Yes, you do. Now, you might be wondering why you need a pickup. Well, the answer is simple: If you have a pickup that you never use, no big deal. If you need a pickup, adding one to a guitar is an expensive and often difficult process. Now, you might be wondering if the extra money spent getting a guitar with a pickup is worth it. And again, that’s where the Cort AD880 CE shines! This guitar is so inexpensive, that a similar specced guitar without a pickup would cost you the same, if not more than, the 880!
But, the addition of the pickup adds one extra feature that makes playing the guitar much easier. This is the cutaway. If you look at the 14th fret of the guitar, you will see that some of the guitar body has been removed (or cutaway). This makes playing higher notes on the guitar far more comfortable and makes the guitar neck feel longer. Sure, you won’t spend much time in that register. But when you are there, you’ll be thankful for the extra space.
Of course, the best way to decide if this is the guitar for you is to play one yourself. If you would like to try one out, drop us an email and we’ll arrange a demo for you. Or, you can visit our online store to check the availability of the guitar online
