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 CR230’s classic design features a single-cutaway all-mahogany body for a thick yet biting rock sound and the time-proven set-neck construction for great sustain and focused midrange tone.

For maximum musical flexibility and versatility, the CR230 features a push-pull tone potentiometer to provide very useful single-coil sounds in additon to the classic humbucker sounds.

As a modern makeover of the CR Series, the CR230 has been enhanced with EMG humbuckers. Featuring traditional open coil design with the ideal balance between clarity and high output for great versatility, this pickup handles the sounds of rock, blues, metal or country with equal ease and authority.

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.
