Sunset Nylectric Press Release
On March 22, 2016 in Seoul, Korea, Cort Guitars announced an exciting new guitar model, the Sunset Nylectric. This new nylon-string electric guitar is Cort’s latest addition to the Sunset Series – a line that aspires to infuse an acoustic character to the electric guitar. The Sunset Nylectric was designed and engineered to bridge the gap between electric and classical players by merging classical guitar features with a more comfortable and traditional low-profile electric guitar style body. This new model is now available through authorized Cort dealers and distributors worldwide.
The 25.6” scale Sunset Nylectric captures the elegance in engineering and classical playability while maintaining superb build quality with precision manufacturing and the immaculate workmanship of experienced builders. This model features a spruce top on a chambered mahogany single-cutaway body, designed for electric players who want to play and get the classical nylon-string sound live. The pickup system includes a Fishman preamp with volume, treble and bass controls located on the top of the guitar below the bridge for easy adjustment during live performances. This instrument has a mahogany bolt-on neck with rosewood fretboard and classical-style tuners and is highlighted with black binding and a comfortable 45mm width at the nut. The Sunset Nylectric is available in Natural, Black, or Translucent Red and is strung with D’Addario EXP46N nylon strings standard.
