Here is what Cort say...
'With over 60 years of experience in manufacturing high quality stringed instruments, Cort has raised the bar with the introduction of three all-solid ukulele models that stand out from the toy-like ukuleles that are so prevalent in the market today.
For serious ukulele players, Cort ukulele series adopted all solid black wood for for aesthetic beauty as well as a solid and expansive sound that improves with age. The characteristic of the blackwood is similar to the mixture of several tonewoods. Rich low-end of mahogany, the brightness of maple and the ideal overtone of rosewood. Blackwood is good for both strumming and finger-picking.
Cort ukuleles also feature bone nut and saddle for optimum transfer of string vibration to the body and the neck.
Also includes high quality gig bag.'
