PRODUCT NEWS Cort L200ATV Acoustic Guitar Cort Guitars has introduced the 200 ATV (Aged to Vintage) Series of acoustic guitars, which includes the L200ATV. The 200 ATV guitars feature basic designs but key enhancements that improve sound quality. The L200ATV has a 1 3/4-in. nut width for easier finger- style playing. The smaller, orchestra model body is a 1920s design that delivers a sound that’s larger than its compact size indicates, and its dynamic responsiveness enhances play- ability. The L200ATV’s vintage tone is delivered through its torrefied solid sitka spruce top and hand-scalloped X-bracing. In the torrefaction process, the wood has been treated and opens up more over time, resulting in the big, open tone of a decades-old acoustic but delivered in a new instrument. The back and sides are constructed of pau ferro and ebony was used for the fretboard, bridge, and bridge pins.
