The Cort 900, which is classified in the "Dreadnought" does not really, since it is a form called "parlor" or "parlor" (000), I wonder if this type of guitar does not drop the guitar lady called living ... (Check). Therefore much smaller than a dreadnought, even smaller than a size "grand concert". The shape of the body is very close to a nylon string classical guitar. The handle is shorter (twelve frets non-cash) and a width of ± 43 mm at nut.
This is a guitar made in Asian countries (like all the Cort). The quality of wood, mahogany back and ribs and cedar, is very conclusive and the violin is quite clean. The neck, head and the bridge are decorated with inlay which gives it a small...…

The Cort 900, which is classified in the "Dreadnought" does not really, since it is a form called "parlor" or "parlor" (000), I wonder if this type of guitar does not drop the guitar lady called living ... (Check). Therefore much smaller than a dreadnought, even smaller than a size "grand concert". The shape of the body is very close to a nylon string classical guitar. The handle is shorter (twelve frets non-cash) and a width of ± 43 mm at nut.
This is a guitar made in Asian countries (like all the Cort). The quality of wood, mahogany back and ribs and cedar, is very conclusive and the violin is quite clean. The neck, head and the bridge are decorated with inlay which gives it a small side upscale type "tradition" pretty cool. The conventional mechanical raportées a perforated head (nylon string guitar genre) gives one side "vintage" just like old Stella, and Martin Warshburn the years 1900-30. Fonctionnellent Although very, very soft, I find for my from the side a little flashy gilding easier the mechanism is built in too. A more neutral finish chrome aurra been kind as well. The body and handle are lined with a white plastic binding (almost beige). The table is masive, but I do not know if the sides are laminated or massive. The rosette is inlaid with a pretty pattern. the bridge and the key is rosewood. The neck is glued, and painted satin covers all. Manufacturing is ultra careful.
I chose this guitar as a model of travel, I also play regularly at home because I like the blues and if you do not want to give you a Gibson Blues King, the Earth 900 makes this vintage are found the recording of the beginning of such past sciècle Robert Johnson. I have big hands, while playing on my habituellemnet Taylor 814, the transition is easy to Cort.
Before buying it, I tried a Larrivee parlor (900.00 euro), a Baby Taylor (450.00 euro), a parlor Landola birch (500.00 euro) and a parlor Santa Cruz (4000.00 eur) . I think apart from the Santa Cruz is really extraordinary, the differences of others provide sound options which will depend on what you want, but not really big differences in quality manufacturing. For my part, I chose the Cort for his typed "vintage", I wanted this difference, I was not looking for a small guitar that sounds like great. It is obvious that the grave is not the appointment and the midrange and treble are decent.

UTILIZATION

The handle is very nice and the hand is made easier. Preferring light strings, I found my happiness with "Elixir custom light" to replace the medium Daddario mounted originally. The handle is short the cash is not cut for the high end, it grated! But the tone of the guitar is shorter so it sounds more acute ...
The ergonomics and balance are appropriate. the gameplay is good, but you have to place the finger for not buzer. I still remember that this is a guitar at 400.00 eur who designed similar to other models and more expensive, but not a Santa Cruz, which is ten times the price.

SOUNDS

Blues, blues, blues, ... No big rhythm. The song on holiday with friends (or at home or anywhere for that matter). As a second guitar in all, it provides the answer and says charm is giving some relief to the melody. It sounds great loud enough to be heard among the others!

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for a year. The price / quality ratio is very good and I would do this choice. For the rest, see the preceding paragraphs.
This guitar is really nice, although it sounds a bit "Asia" timbre is an opportunity to explore other musical styles and fly to other compositions. It is certainly not a guitar polivalente and if you want to learn an instrument unique to play all styles, you're wrong. In similar instrument, there is also the Takamine New York (to 900.00 eur).
As I said above it takes the road with its difference asserted in the face of the guitar as previously mentioned but not the face of high-end instrument which is not intended to be seen from the budget. Program are consistent and the instrument is beautiful to look at and fun to play.

UTILIZATION

I chose this guitar for its size, very light and very comfortable to hold, even over the shoulder to have a nice tool for my travels.
The handle, once the action resolved by lowering the bridge saddle is very nice, the contact of the string is flexible, and its width of 46mm fine with me.

SOUNDS

Fingers, its sound is really impressive, with very low current and a surprising volume in view of the size of the sound palette caisse.Sa larend ASEZ versatile, especially dansle game open tuning.
The game with a pick is not his cup of tea, especially forthe rhythmic sound which defined and apparaitmal draft.

OVERALL OPINION

Given its price (430 €), it is a bargain, it replaces and much less a Larrivee parlor me somewhat disappointed.
Indeed shortly after purchased, its size was so much that I bought a Santa Cruz 00 OCCAZ the same size, but on an entirely different quality (the price is not too the same), see the notice on the site.
In this price range, it estvraiment unbeatable and we take great pleasure in playing it, the fingers, at least pick.

Made in Asia. Where? It is important only on the selling price.
Guitar shaped Parlour (Parlor) ... although some say it is a "0". Solid wood: cedar table, mahogany for the back and neck. The sides, mahogany as well, but can be laminated?! Rosewood fingerboard and bridge with abalone inlays a little kitschy, but some people like. Head "slotted". 12 frets to the body. Pitch of 645 mm. Nut 43.5 mm. Mechanical golden comparable to guitars "classic".
This model has been discontinued for 2 years and was replaced by the model L900P (14 frets to the body, neck without inlay, and perhaps other differences ...).

Rosewood fingerboard and bridge with abalone inlays a little kitschy, but some people like. Head "slotted". 12 frets to the body. Pitch of 645 mm. Nut 43.5 mm. Mechanical golden comparable to guitars "classic".
This model has been discontinued for 2 years and was replaced by the model L900P (14 frets to the body, neck without inlay, and perhaps other differences ...).

UTILIZATION

In fact, this guitar has much in common (size, timber volume of cash) with a classical guitar except the neck width (Nut 43.5 mm). It is equipped with an adjusting rod. The action is set to 3 mm at the 12th fret. Can still be lowered, but not too vocation made this guitar for blues and slide.
Access to acute is limited by the junction sleeve / case to the 12th fret. But it is a kind vintage parlor! Need to know to make concessions. However, the length of the pitch is that of a dreadnought, so it does not sound too "slamming". In addition, I equipped Martin Silk & Steel strings that give it its pretty "mellow", despite the low volume of the body: upperbout 26 cm, 35 cm lowerbout, thickness of 9.5 to 10.5 cm. Total length 97 cm. Tree light.

SOUNDS

It is a small volume, but thanks to the wood and strings are used, it provides both sound "dry" a parlor but the mids and the bass is quite present (without being a well-jumbo course!). So, a very wide range of sounds. Really surprising for such a small guitar.
Now, the choice of string greatly affects the sound.
When I received it, it was equipped with extra-lights 10-46, which does not suit him at all. It supports very well the 12-52 (according to Michael Mucklow who used to record the track "Color of the Morning" on his album "The view from here". Go listen.

OVERALL OPINION

I already own a dreadnought and jumbo, and I was looking for a "little guitar" comfortable ... (I still have to grow up a little) for the blues and picking and easy to carry, but I was not ready to choose for a travel guitar that sounds worse than a ukulele and, for that price, no one Larrivée either.
But here we have a real solid wood guitar for a price (Asian) very affordable: 300 euros occasion with a hard case (New, it cost I think 550). Very comfortable and enjoyable to play ... nice if we ignore the abalone inlay a bit "too much!" the handle. Anyway, the parlors are also called "Guitar Romantic" (ancient Rome?). Matter of taste everything.
That is, to listen, take a ride on the site very nice Michael Mucklow (New Mexico - USA).
In summary, I love and I recommend it for its value price.
