Little CJ Series Offers Compact Acoustics with Uncompromising Sound
As interest in smaller-sized acoustic guitars continues to grow, Cort introduces the Little CJ Series to meet the desires and needs of modern players. Designed with classic and premium features in a compact package, the Little CJ does not compromise in sound or playability. Players with a smaller physique or those simply looking for an extremely portable option will find that the Little CJ is a high-quality instrument that’s made for years of musical enjoyment.
When downsizing a guitar, compromises are inherent in volume, pitch stability, and bass response. To enhance these critical areas of overall performance, Cort thoughtfully chose materials and design components, starting with the Little CJ’s ¾ jumbo body. An arched back has been implemented to improve tactile response and to provide a fuller and richer sound that's often lacking in shorter-scale guitars. The mahogany back and sides provide a bright, yet natural tone with a strong and warm midrange. This wood choice is complemented by a solid Sitka spruce top, which provides an ideal balance between strength and flexibility, and has a versatile sonic character that’s suitable for a variety of genres and playing styles. The 20-fret mahogany neck with ovangkol fretboard furthers this guitar’s adaptability.
The Little CJ has a 597 mm (23.5’’) scale length that provides enhanced playability for guitar players with small hands and physique. The comfortable V-neck shape is commonly used on downsized acoustics and is easier for smaller hands to grasp and maneuver. Cort’s exclusive scooped surface bridge enhances sustain with greater string angle from the saddle to the body while reducing tension on the strings across the neck for less finger fatigue and improved comfort. The nut width is a standard 43 mm (1 11/16’’).
Small in stature but fully stage ready, the Little CJ has a Fishman Presys II Preamp with 2-band equalization, built-in tuner and a phase switch for effective tone shaping and noiseless operation during live performances. Vintage and relatively lightweight open gear tuners (18:1 tuning ratio) on the specially sized headstock help make the tuning process a breeze.
The Little CJ is available in three attractive wood options — mahogany, blackwood and walnut — each with black binding and white purfling. A gig bag is included.
