Northbrook, IL (June 3, 2014) -- The MR Series of acoustic guitars from Cort has traditionally been viewed as their finest line of instruments at affordable prices. This year, they are adding the MR600F. The new model is outfitted with the Fishman Isys Plus preamp and Sonicore pickup to provide a high quality, good sounding acoustic guitar with built in electronics at a price point affordable to the masses.

The MR600F is a dreadnought body with a Venetian cutaway for unhindered playability up and down the fretboard. With mahogany back and sides, the body is topped with a solid spruce top and advanced scalloped X bracing for overall performance. The 25.3” mahogany neck features the traditional three on three headstock, rosewood fretboard, and dot inlays. Additional details include D’Addario USA EXP16 strings.

The Fishman Isys Onboard Preamp System from Fishman is designed and built to offer maximum control, performance and quality in a small, unobtrusive format. The compact system features volume, bass and treble controls, a phase switch, built-in tuner with LED display, a low battery indicator, low profile control knobs and a unique pivot design for easy access to the battery compartment.
