The head bears the signature of the master, the tailpiece his initiale.A unless it be that of Cort ... This is an arch top body with wide and deep. You have to be broken in this type of instrument to feel at ease, but there are times when it's worth making an effort. Here it is. Spruce top, flamed maple body, sunburst finish is simple and successful, we appreciate the shield of wood which also benefits the sunburst. The curly maple neck also has a profile that gives the sensation jazz but in fact is much more modern than we think. It is quite late, well arched, in short, is the comfort guaranteed. The rosewood fingerboard has pearl markers that mix and abalone, 20 jumbo frets are trapezoidal in section, which provides a rigorous non-aggressive tone. The oil bath mechanical buttons have "tulip". The bridge not set at the table has a wooden saddle height adjustment thanks to two screws. Compensation is provided.

UTILIZATION

See above.

SOUNDS

This guitar has a special astonishing: every note you play is an invitation to the next. It's pretty hard to explain but there is an indescribable something that gives wings to guitarists. You want to use as possible, to make refinements in the phrasing of the delight sustain. This feeling is indescribable it due to the violin, the sound, something else? Mystery ... the two microphones are "duncan designed" whose coils are visible, they are controlled by two volumes, two tones and a three position switch. The microphone is full and serious atmosphere. Bass, absolutely beautiful, bloom in our ears while being very accurate, they are among the most beautiful I've heard. The rest of the range is certainly not below, but more common. There is the need to dive, the desired smooth, short, a wonder that micro serious! The sharp bite and is more willing to allow some inroads in saturation, for those who love. It is a little less jazz than the other, but still usable.

OVERALL OPINION

This guitar has it all a subtle blend tradition and personality.
Long played a roland jazz chorus 120 is a jewel. It has nothing to envy of much more expensive models ...
To test urgently
