Cort’s new CR300 electric guitar is for players who desire original PAF (“Patent Applied For”) tone without the price tag. Modeled after classic designs, the single-cutaway CR300 has a set neck, solid body and retroactive humbuckers to evoke the timeless sounds of the 50s and 60s.

One of the CR300’s most prominent time-tested features is the thick 15 mm (0.6’’) carved premium maple top on a mahogany body with ivory binding. This classic wood combination enables a tone that’s thick, warm, rich, and full, but with an edge to the sweetness. This quality is further enhanced by set-neck construction, which produces a sound and feel distinctly different from bolt-on, with enhanced sustain and a more focused midrange that cuts through the mix like a knife through hot butter. The mahogany neck has a jatoba fingerboard with retro block inlays and a 12’’ radius on a 24.75’’ scale.

The CR300 is built with EMG RetroActive Fat 55 dual humbuckers that provide the best of two worlds: warm and sweet vintage-style tones with all the benefits of active low impedance output. The 3-way toggle switch selects either humbucker or both.
