From pilots and people who travel to students or musicians with smaller hands, the mini-sized guitar has become pervasive. But while most guitar brands are making a small-sized or travel guitar, not all are equal. The Cort CJ range is the perfect example of the intersection where world-class quality meets an affordable price.
One of the first concerns that most players raise when they see a smaller guitar the tone. Can a small-body guitar sound good? The truth is that there is no yes/no answer. Will one of the Cort CJ Little guitars sound great? With their bright, crisp tone we think that they sound awesome. But ultimately, like with any guitar, you will need to try one out and decide for yourself if you like the sound.

Little CJ Walnut
You’ll easily stand out from the crowd with the luxurious looking Little CJ Walnut. The walnut includes a walnut back and sides with identical features to the CJ Mini OP. With its arched back, you’ll have excellent comfort and rich sound.
The guitar features an Ovangkol fingerboard and a scale length of 23.5” which will produce the best sound quality and is perfect for guitar players with smaller hands.
