Cort have been building our favorite budget acoustic guitars for decades. Thanks to their wealth of experience, Cort have managed to continue to innovate and improve upon their range of guitars year on year.
2021 is absolutely no different in this regard, particularly when we zoom in on their newest acoustic guitar offerings.
Let’s take a look at Cort’s 2021 acoustic guitar offerings.
Cort’s new premium series of all-solid acoustic guitars, the Core Series features the very best materials, components and workmanship for instruments that will improve with age like fine wine. The range is available in three tone wood options, Mahogany, Spruce, and Blackwood. If the utmost sound quality is your top priority, then you need to look no further than the Core Series.
The Cort Gold series is designed with a total focus on sound, but now with the introduction of the Gold-Edge, the focus and dedication has expanded to push the limits on ergonomics and playability. Cort’s decades of technological advancements and guitar building knowledge sparked the development of the ‘triple bevel cut’ system, and with the right amount of angle and depth for each bevel cuts on three different strategic areas of the guitar body, acoustic guitar playing has never felt more comfortable. Together with selected master grade tonewoods, an L.R. Baggs Anthem pickup system, and the top-of-the-line Gold standard build and sound quality, the Gold-Edge is the true golden result of tradition and innovation.
The new Gold-OC8 was developed in order to meet the demand for top-tier quality guitar from players who seek a comfortable OM sized body with 43mm (1 11/16”) nut width. The hallmark of Cort’s Gold series is the Aged to Vintage (ATV) treatment that allows the Master Grade solid Sitka spruce top to cure and open up more over time. ATV acts as a torrefaction process, giving the Gold-OC8 a big, open tone that’s bright yet natural with a strong and warm midrange that’s reinforced by the solid Pau Ferro back and sides. A sonically enhanced UV finish is added to protect both the instrument and enhance tonal quality and Fishman’s innovative Flex Blend System offers a wide range of sonic control along with a built-in tuner.
the SFX Series features Cort’s own unique slim body shape (83-83mm) with a comfortable cutaway, modern V-shape neck profile and jumbo frets for enhanced playability, arched back for improved resonance, and Fishman electronics. The use of exotic wood Myrtlewood gives the SFX Myrtlewood a unique look that stands out from rest of the series while enabling it to produce the bright and clear sound with clear sound projection.
Little CJ Adirondack
The Little CJ is a ¾-sized jumbo body acoustic guitar, now built with a solid Adirondack spruce top. Stronger and denser than Sitka spruce, the Adirondack spruce is characterized by broad dynamics as well as articulation and smoothness at high volume. Other features include Mahogany back and sides, Mahogany neck, Ovangkol fingerboard, 23.5” (597mm) scale length, Fishman Presys II electronics and a gig bag.
Earth Mini E Adirondack

Designed for extreme portability, you can now take the premium sounds of solid Adirondack Spruce top with you anywhere you go. The guitar is also equipped is the Cort® CE304T electronics system with 3-band EQ for stage performances.
Jade E Nylon
The new Jade E Nylon is Cort’s modern take on the oldest form of guitar, using a smaller classical-size body with modern neck specs. Jade E Nylon delivers great balanced sound and easier playability with a thinner neck and deeper cutaway for experienced players and beginners alike. Also equipped is the Cort® CE304T electronics system with 3-band EQ for stage performances.
The traditional classical AC models have been re-engineered to improve resonance for an authentic classical guitar sound. The optimal combination of tonewoods yields a traditional, deep and delightfully mellow tone. AC200 3/4 has a smaller body size and shortened scale to help novice players on their journey, but features SOLID Spruce top, Mahogany back and sides, and Savarez Cristal Corum strings for an authentic pro-level tones and playing experience.
