Cort’s vision of alternatives to the popular dreadnought shape, the Luce Series offers smaller body size shapes like OM, Concert and Parlor that are easier to hold and play while providing a more balanced sound. An ideal balance between classic vintage looks from the golden age of guitars and modern yet practical features, the Luce Series guitars provide the best of both worlds in perfect harmony.
PARLOR BODY (12TH-FRET JOINT)
Based on the revered vintage parlor body guitars from the 1930’s, the 12th fret neck-body joint not only imparts a classical look but produces a strong low-end and surprisingly loud volume for a guitar of its compact size.
SOLID RED 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.
PALDAO BACK & SIDES
A hard and dense wood, Paldao delivers bright high-mids and a clear low-end. Looks-wise, it is reminiscent of Koa for a classy high-end look.
1 ¾” (45MM) NUT WIDTH
A slightly wider nut width that makes it easier for fingerstyle playing.
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.
GROVER VINTAGE MACHINE HEADS
Vintage-style look and tuning stability complement the overall classic look of this model.
VINTAGE SUNBURST FINISH
A special vintage-style sunburst finish to complement the overall vintage look and vibe of this model.
Headstock used on pre-war 1920’s guitars, not only does it exhibit a classy vintage look but it also produces a tone more reminiscent of classical-style guitars.
Vintage-style triangular headvolute for an upgraded look.
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.
