Cort Explorer Guitars

The Cort Explorer is actually just an Explorer shaped guitar. It is actually called the Cort Effector. Tons of Cort guitars have been reviewed over at Ultimate Guitar as well as a few other guitar forums around the internet.

Sometimes you can still stumble on a review of the Effector if you look hard enough. Cort guitars are primarily known for being budget priced, economical starter guitars.

Their reviews are mixed obviously depending on the owner. Some complain of cheap workmanship, and others boast of unusually desirable playability. Some even consider the Cort to be road-worthy, the debate continues...


Cort Explorer Shaped GuitarPersonally I never owned a Cort guitar but have had friends who have. Early in their playing career, I never heard complaints or saw any physical problems with these instruments.

As they became more accomplished in the art of guitar playing, the guitars found themselves with more closet time, so I more or less developed my thoughts from that standpoint.

Cort is currently producing a guitars called the VX-2X which is somewhat Explorer shaped. I do not see the Effector listed or featured anywhere on their website cortguitars.com at this time but one can never tell if they would resurrect this vintage model if consumer demand were to dictate.

The Effector has a hockey-stick head and the expected set of effects buttons along the bottom bout: Wah, Phaze, Distort, etc. All Effectors, regardless of style (they made a strat style one, too) have the effects bay I've described (thanks David for the info).

If you feel the need to buy a Cort, you can find distributors here. They are currently produced abroad.

This is all the specific info I have right now but if you'd like to add to this description I'd appreciate any information sent to me right here. I'm looking for descriptions, pictures, production years, availablilty, and that sort of info. If you can help out, please do.

f you're looking to buy, Rondo Music stocks plenty of similarly economical guitars in both right and left hand.
