It's superbly responsive and incredibly dynamic. Bringing you the ultimate platform for versatile playing. Plus, it will always respond to your individual playing style. Attached to the Luce's solid top are African mahogany back and sides, which add warmth, texture, and depth to your sound while producing a strong mid-range. It's time to play, your way.
Sought-after pre-war tone
Dynamic and defined. This Cort Luce Bevel Cut features a vintage OM body. First introduced in the 1920's, this OM body captures and delivers all that magical pre-war era tone. And it sounds fantastic, producing the perfect sonic blend of power and balance. This is an instrument with undeniable sound quality - not to be underestimated.
Orchestra guitars offer comfort and plenty of sonic attitude. Although this shape particularly excels when being picked, it certainly packs a punch for heavier strumming when the occasion calls for it. Its larger lower bout allows more of the sound to reverberate around the body. Plus, thanks to its curvaceous, player-friendly shape, you can hold this instrument close to your body - ensuring your playing is precise, controlled, and always comfortable. Plus, with a bevel-cut to the lower bout, you've got a place to rest your arm too. It's immensely comfortable while allowing you to take control over your playing - precision at your fingertips.
Tone enhancing core
Strong sound, durable body. The Luce Bevel Cut Acoustic features advanced X-bracing. Constructed with an 'X' shape formed across the soundboard, the Luce Acoustic delivers a stunningly even tone. This means that no matter the pitch you're playing at, everything you play will be delivered with magnificent definition and clarity.
Plus, bracing reinforces the guitar's structure and prevents the instrument from collapsing under string tension. Not only is your instrument durable, but for a smaller bodied guitar, this Luce Acoustic offers unforgettable sonic power, great sustain, and beautiful resonance. The overall result - sensational sound, solid construction.
The fine details...
Meticulous. Cort have added a scooped bridge to the Luce Acoustic. The result is an enhanced sonic performance. It's exclusive, and brings added character to your overall sound. Scooping the bridge's surface enhances overall sustain for a long, melodic sound. Plus, with a greater string angle from the saddle to the body, the Luce's string tension has been noticeably reduced. This prevents finger fatigue and improves the overall feel - resulting in liquid smooth playability and a rich, sustaining character.
