Beginner guitarists looking for an acoustic guitar with pickup, which also has an excellent price / quality ratio, soon come to Cort. This MR500E has a solid spruce top and laminated mahogany wood parts for the rest of the cabinet to meet the traditional features of an affordable western guitar. It is a Dreadnought cutaway model with Cort's own preamp. Its top has a high-gloss Brown burst finish and the rest has an Open pore finish, an extremely thin lacquer where the grain of the wood can be felt. This ensures an optimal sound, but is slightly more sensitive to damage.
