The Classic Rock Series delivers the look, feel and performance of the much sought-after vintage instruments from the Golden Era of electric guitars. At the heart of each CR Series guitar is the specially designed ClassicRocker pickups for an authentic vintage rock sound and response. The new CR-Custom’s time-tested classic design features a single-cutaway body, carved premium quilted maple top and set-neck construction.

The Seymour Duncan JB is an industry standard for a versatile and powerful bridge pickup that is equally at home for a clean bluesy sound or an aggressive hot-rodded rock tone. The vintage-flavored ’59 in the recreates the classic sounds of rock’s golden era and is the perfect complement to the JB.

The most popular Kluson® styles are now available in the CR-Custom to not only provide an authentic vintage look but improved tuning stability and performance.

The CR-Custom is equipped with a Tone Pros bridge and talipiece for superb transfer of string vibrations into the body wood as well as excellent tuning stability and ease of string changes.

The Cort company, as its current incarnation, was founded in 1960 as an importer of pianos. The business slowly evolved from a piano importer to a manufacturer and sales division then finally into a guitar manufacturer in 1973. At this early stage of the company’s history, Soo Doh was strictly an OEM supplier to other foreign brand name companies. The company eventually changed its name to Cort Musical Instruments, focused on guitars and released the first Cort-branded guitars in 1982.
