Not everyone can afford a nice custom make guitar. Cheap mass produced guitars are essential in the marketplace.
I’ve mentioned Cort Guitars previously in the blog about Victorian blackwood legend Murray Kidman. Murray supplies blackwood from the Otway Ranges to Cort Guitars. It’s not Tasmanian blackwood, but maybe……..one day.
So here’s an impressive video tour of the Cort acoustic guitar factory. They even mention blackwood at 53 seconds!
The machinery and technology you can invest in when you build >1,000,000 guitars per year! Quite amazing!
Could this one day be Tasmanian certified farm-grown blackwood? Absolutely!
