LUXE Frank Gambale SIGNATURE MODEL

Developed in conjunction with legendary guitarist Frank Gambale, this is a true signature model in that the artist had a great deal of input on each detail of the guitar. Ideal for high-speed soloing, this innovative acoustic-electric guitar also features custom wooden rosette and custom fingerboard inlay designed by Frank Gambale himself.

“This guitar is so balanced and resonant right across the whole range on the fret board. The guitar rings like a bell and the tone and volume beautifully balanced through the range of the instrument. I think it’s the wonderful combination of woods and the classical guitar body dimensions that is a powerful combination that just works!!”

91x106mm body depth gives ideal resonation of each and every note played.

The custom extra light gauge specified by Frank Gambale facilitates fast soloing on the high frets without loss of volume or projection.

Jeff’s basses have always been simple and vintage inspired, but then tweaked to his exact specifcations to make them something special. The Rithimic provides that same balance between vintage, simple and well evolved for today’s playing demands.

“After playing the same bass for so many years I was not sure that another builder could develop something that I would love. As soon as I played the very f irst Cort Rithimic bass I was wowed. I could not believe how perfectly this bass turned out. This is an astonishing instrument that Cort has built for me.”

Jeff Berlin

DESIGNED AND INSPIRED BY

JEFF BERLIN “Boasting an alder body adorned with an artistic veneer of spalted maple and padouk, Cort’s new Rithimic bass is visually striking, yet tasteful.” “If you dig Jeff Berlin’s sound, approach, and style of playing, the Rithimic will put you in the ballpark—at least equipment-wise.”

MAGAZINE

“Jeff’s setup is as straightforward and direct as his attitude to making music, especially with his signature Rithimic bass from Cort.”

On the heels of the mega-successful release of the MBC-1 Matt Bellamy Signature Model that was developed in conjunction with UK’ s Manson Guitars, the new M-Jet and Classic TC models that continue and expand upon the design concepts of hybrid vintage single cutaway electric guitars.

Hugh Manson has been making electric guitars for some of the world’s best known rock & roll superstars, including John Paul Jones from Led Zeppelin and Matt Bellamy from Muse. Cort collaborated with Hugh to create two guitars Classic TC and M-Jet. Both are built on the Manson Guitar Works popular body style platform which takes vintage guitar design further.

We asked guitarists what their biggest obstacle was while learning to play. Answers ranged from weight, and cost. We took these problems to our builders and design team and challenged them new EasyPlay guitars. When you're learning guitar, play smarter, not harder.

To address the growing interest in small size guitars, CortÂŽ has developed these new downsized acoustic guitar models with their desires and needs in mind. Due to the compromises that are inherent when downsizing the guitar in such areas as volume, pitch stability, and the bass response, an arched back is utilized to enhance these critical areas of the guitar's overall performance.
