Cort GA5F-BW (Blackwood )
Grand Regal body
Solid Cedar Top Acoustic Guitar with Pickup
The new Grand Regal Series from Cort is based on the popular Grand Auditorium body shape that sits right in between the dreadnought and concert-size shapes for a full but balanced sound. The 45mm(1 3/4") nut width also makes it ideal for fingerstyle playing. GA5F-BW is solid Cedar top with Blackwood back and sides, Fishman Presys 3-Band EQ, LED Tuner, and Phase control offers sonic flexibility as well as convenience for a variety of playing situations where amplification is needed. Concert-Sized = Smaller body than Full size
AUDITORIUM CUTAWAY BODY
With dimensions of 117mm(4 5/8") body depth, upper bout width at 292mm(11 1/2") and lower bout width at 405mm(16"), the Grand Regal’s body size is perfectly in between the large Dreadnought and the more intimate Grand Concert. This makes the Grand Regal ideal for both strumming/flatpicking and fingerstyle playing and suits the versatile acoustic player who prefers to have one guitar to cover a variety of sounds and playing styles.
SOLID CEDAR TOP
Compared to spruce, cedar is a bit mellower and warmer. The midrange is slightly accentuated with a sweeter top-end, making cedar ideal for players who fingerpick a lot and prefer a slightly rounder and fuller sound.
AUSTRALIAN BLACKWOOD BACK & SIDES
Australian Blackwood is like a combination of the low-mids of mahogany, the brightness of maple and the rich overtones of rosewood. This versatility makes blackwood stand out for both fingerstyle playing or strumming as well as being a perfect match for the Cedar top. Top solid construction is featured on this model.
GENUINE BONE NUT & SADDLE
Crafted out of water buffalo bone for the most natural and transparent transfer of string vibrational energy into the body and neck.
EBONY BRIDGE PINS
To complement the bone saddle, the Grand Regal Series features ebony bridge pins for enhanced string vibration and a more natural and lush sound.
45mm (1 ¾”) NUT WIDTH
A slightly wider nut width that makes it easier for fingerstyle playing.
FISHMAN PRESYS EQ
3-Band EQ, LED Tuner, and Phase control offers sonic flexibility as well as convenience for a variety of playing situations where amplification is needed.
MODERN V SHAPE NECK PROFILE
This exclusive neck shape facilitates ease of fingering and high-speed soloing, especially in the high register near the cutawa
FISHMAN PRESYS BLEND EQ
Identical in specs to the Presys but the Blend EQ includes a microphone that can be blended in with the under-saddle pickup for a wider range of sounds. Also includes notch filter control to eliminate feedback.
SONICALLY ENHANCED UV FINISH
The high-tech finish is strong and resistant to scratches while being lightweight to improve the natural acoustic resonance of the body for a full-bodied and rich tone.
