Cort SFX5
Cutaway model
A solid spruce top
Mahogany back and sides, mahogany neck
Rosewood binding with 20 boxes
Fishman Classic 4 preamp with volume / brightness / 3 band EQ and tuner.
Mechanical oil bath Grover
Chrome hardware.


The ease provided by the handle is excellent, a profile very close to a power.
I had never touched a handle acoustic enjoyable. The pan-cut allows access to acute smoothly.


The sound is truly sublime, a perfect balance between gloss and low well represented.
Disconnected, the pan-cut the flange does not, by virtue of its extremely solid table.
Trendy, beautiful offers its malleable if necessary, through Fishman4, which allows a very precise equalization of the sound desired.
Thus, all styles are affordable, although the country snapping the greasy blues with a slight crunch.


I use it for Christmas and I'm not disappointed.

A very good value for less than € 500!

Cort SFX5
This electro-acoustic guitar is made in China.
A Pan Coupbr /> Soundboard of pica solid (like Stradivarius violins)
Mahogany back and sides, mahogany neck
Rosewood binding with 20 boxes
Prampli a Fishman Classic 4 with Volume / Brightness / 3 band EQ and tuner Intgr.
Mcaniques oil bath Grover
Chrome hardware.
Mcaniques black buttons.


I confirm Previous notice, the handle is in all respects
remarkable. A real pleasure, I also possde a Gibson SG standard. I can say that the handle of the electro-acoustic envier.C nothing he is a true rgal to play it. Velvet. The cutaway allows for painless accder Aiges.
The "action" String is too important. However this is very easy RULES. Itself even if it is a little "manual" and "mticuleux". If a luthier can reduce the height by some "stroke of limes." The tuner Intgr is a good thing. As for keeping the tuning, no problem, even if your game is a bit "violent", it does not easily dsaccorde. The box "mini jumbo" makes handling boards.


I live on my arm sound with a little reverb, the sound is good trs trs. In addition to the equalizer we go allgrement traditional acoustic sound of the nylon, the Folk sound. For my part I am plutt Clapton, Dire Strait, Ciara, etc. ..
Notes or slide according to the slam attack with a surprising quality in a good way.


The MODEL I possde is a "sunburst" finish is irrprochable. I think it should be quite fragile and must be careful. I use this guitar for a week and really I'm excited, so much so that I dlaisse for now my electric guitars.
The strings are a little montes "hard", but may be is it the fact of my usual play on an electric "class" that gives me that impression.
Gard had the pleasure to play on my instrument, I can only encourage you acqurir. I tried 6 or 7 MODELS in this price range. For my part I do not regret at all and I'm convinced he made the right choice. Everyone can not afford a "Taylor" or "Martin".

Élecrto-acoustic folk guitar made ​​in Korea (South ... I guess).
It has 20 frets.
The table is solid Sitka spruce top.
The Fund and the handle are made of mahogany.
The keys are rosewood.
The lifts are "Die cast w / Black Knobs" excellent!
EQ Fishman Classic 4T:
- Volume 1.
- Treble 1.
- 1 Medium.
- Grave 1.
- 1 electronic tuner.
One branch from below: the small button that allows you to attach the strap to the back.

Otherwise, the same as in the picture. ^ ^


"The SFX series guitars, with their boxes to thin cutaway and arched back, are characterized by a comfortable in."
It is 100% true!
The handle fits comfortably in your hand.
Usually I do not like guitars with varnish sleeves: there I really do absolutely not!
It is very light.
Access to aigë is relatively easy.

Maybe for some, the gap between the strings and the neck at the 12th fret is too high. But a small adjustment, and then voila!


"It is equipped with an electronic Fihsman to obtain a sound 'big'."
I admit that I did not plugged ... So I can not tell you more or less.

For cons, the raw sound is divine, I'm hooked:
It is round and warm. The folks often sound very metallic: No one! ^ ^
Apparently this is typical of the brand Cort ... ??
I have tried many different brands of acoustic folk (even Takamine ultra expensive), I've never found a sound as warm and round.
NB: I never tried to Martin, Guild, Taylor or ...


I use it for 2 years now.
I could compare it to a very pretty girl:
A perfect body and a voice that captivates!
<p class="bbcode-offtopic"> Off <span>topic:</span> So <span>perhaps a bit too! ^ ^</span>

This is my first guitar folk. It was a gift, and was particularly well chosen!
Since I test on the right and left other folk guitars and none that Vallent Cort SFX 5!

So I would say that the price / quality ratio is excellent and with experience I buy a Cort!

khorram's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Cort SFX5
Korean made, solid top with pica. Rosewood fingerboard, 20 frets.
Fishman Classic 4T Prampli qualisation with three bands, volume and shine.
Mcaniques oil bath.
Jumbo baby form.
Impcable finish.


The handle is thin, it slides perfectly. The guitar is thin and lightweight (IDAL standing for concerts).

The cutaway allows good ACCS ais a recess to treble.


The one enters the heart of the matter:

Acoustics, the sound is more qu'honnte for a guitar in this range. Mtallique a bit, it is ideal for streaming arpges well. The sustain is long when it relavant.

For rhythm, the sound seeming to GNER mtallique little too aggressive for those who can not play without mdiator.

Once amplified, the prampli shows its capabilities by correcting default of acoustics (with particular brilliance rglage) and every time that little is versatile and adapts trs all styles of play quilisation The trs is effective.

I would put just a string of 8 for a half-serious twisting a little, change the nut adjusts the story.


I use it as a group with an electric parallle. She used to call home without making too much noise and I plugged into a Marshall Solost repqu 50RS on a 2 * 1000 watt sound system (no concern for the concerts so)

I had a view of the Cort SFX 10 before but try both (acoustic and amplified), I noticed that the big diffrence is especially in the finish (back pommel for the main SFX 10 ).
Beware though, the former prampli SFX5 silent much worse than the Classic 4T I have on my own so be careful if you find one used.

At least for 380 (jack, strap and carrying case available) I think it's a good scratch and trs I would do without this choice hsiter.
