The traditional style AC models have been re-engineered to improve resonance for an authentic classical guitar sound. The nice combination of tone-woods yields a traditional, deep and delightfully mellow tone. Cort AC series is very forgiving of student mistakes,requiring slightly less precision and sharpness for a good tone. AC250DX Ziricote features Solid Cedar top, Ziricote back and sides, Ovangkol fingerboard and Savarez crystal strings.
SOLID CEDAR TOP
Cedar is after Spruce the most used tonewood for the top of an acoustic guitar. It's less dense then Spruce and therefor softer then Spruce. This results in a warmer more defined tone. Cedar also is more articulate when it comes to lower volume playing, it amplifies soft tones. It's exceptional for fingerpicking, which makes it the perfect tonewood for guitars with a smaller body size like the Auditorium, Orchestra Model or Parlor. It is also often the prefered tonewood for the top of a higher-end classical guitar.
ZIRICOTE BACK AND SIDES
Ziricote is sometimes called Mexican Ebony, though it's not really black and it's not an ebony. he pretty pieces are a dark gray or brown with black streaks, and the really pretty pieces will knock your socks off. It has excellent low dampening qualities similar to most rosewoods with a clean resonant reverbery characteristic. Zircote pairs well with almost any top to bring a wide tonal variety to the builder’s pallet. The tone of Ziricote falls between Indian rosewood and Macassar Ebony, it has more clarity than Indian but provides more overtones than Macassar.
TRADITIONAL FAN BRACING

CLASSICAL HEAD VOLUTE
The volute makes the player’s left thumb feel comfortable during playing to enhance playability.
