CORT Frank Gambale Signature Luxe Acoustic Electric Guitar
Developed in conjunction with legendary guitarist Frank Gambale, this is a true signature model in that the artist had a great deal of input on each detail of the guitar. Ideal for high-speed soloing, this innovative acoustic-electric guitar also features custom wooden rosette and custom fingerboard inlay designed by Frank Gambale himself. This is a truly unique acoustic guitar as envisioned by a true guitar legend.

Our Frank Gambale Signature model, the Luxe, receives an update on the electronics and now features Fishman® Flex Blend. We carefully tested various pickup and preamp options with Frank and finally decided on Fishman® Flex Blend, which Frank described it as “powerful and rich with crystal clear tones!” The beautiful design and specs of LUXE remain the same that was built meticulously based on ideas that emerged from Frank’s incredible career as one of the best guitarists in the world, which truly makes this guitar unique!
Concert Body Shape – Small body with lower bout width of 372㎜(14 21/32″) and upper bout width of 280㎜(11″), 100㎜ x 105㎜ body depth gives ideal resonation of each and every note played.
Solid Adirondack Spruce Top – Stronger and denser than Sitka spruce, the Adirondack spruce is characterized by broad dynamics as well as articulation and smoothness at high volume. The elastic tactile response suits both aggressive strumming and precise flatpicking. Adirondack spruce bracing further sets apart the unique sound and response of this exceptional wood. Famously used on the sought-after vintage Martin dreadnaughts of the 1930’s, the difficult-to- source Adirondack spruce is the crowning feature of this model at a most reasonable price.
Flamed Blackwood Back & Sides – Blackwood is like a combination of the low-mids of mahogany, the brightness of maple and the rich overtones of rosewood. This versatility makes blackwood stand out for both fingerstyle playing or strumming as well as being a perfect match for the spruce top.
Fishman® Flex Blend System – With a sophisticated modern design and innovative technical engineering, the Fishman® Flex Blend System offers a wide range of sonic control along with a built-in tuner. Volume, Tone, Phase, Blend and Tuner functions are all available from three knobs and the tuner display. You can also adjust the Tone knob to best suit fingerpicking or strumming techniques without feedback issues and other sonic anomalies while delivering the most natural acoustic sound to your amplification system.
Ebony Fingerboard & Bridge – A very strong and dense wood, ebony provides a tight and coherent low-end with enhanced mids. The jet-black imparts class and a luxurious look
Art Deco Styled Design – Thanks to Frank Gambale’s dedication on designing of the guitar, the instrument designed based on modern Art Deco influence.
Graph Tech® Black TUSQ Nut & Saddle – Preferred by many guitar makers and players for rich tone and sustain, the TUSQ is an advanced polymer that’s formed under high heat and pressure for uniform density. It’s designed to transfer string energy more efficiently, and to make guitars come alive with enhanced harmonics, volume and sustain.
