Cort has officially rolled out the new Gold 8 series on their global website.
The Gold series was launched two years to mark the addition of a higher range of guitars made with features such as torrefied master grade tops, double-lock neck joints and all solid construction.
Now the latest 8 series guitars come with even nicer appointments including more intricate fretboard inlays, a burst finish and solid pau ferro as body wood.
Previously only known as “SRV’s choice of fretboard”, pau ferro has been in the limelight lately due to CITES which forces guitar makers to seek alternatives to rosewood. It’s grains seem close enough and I think buyers will be pleased with it.
Available in three shapes – D8 (dread), O8 (OM) and A8 (Grand Auditorium with EQ). Great buy if prices are good when they arrive in SG.

Furch has added the Indigo Deluxe to their lineup.
The new model features upgrades over the standard Indigo series with appointments such as rosewood binding and rosette, as well as pearl fret markers.
Tone woods used here are solid cedar top with layered mahogany body.
With the same starting price point as the lower-tiered Indigo Plus (EUR960), this is a really great improvement without the price hike. Thumbs up to Furch.

Latest release from the Parallel Universe Series, this great looking Tele Thinline should interest players looking for the rockabilly feel and sound.
Features such as TV Jones pickups, bound fretboard with block inlays, and that F-hole really makes it quite special.
With all the guitars in the series having Tele bodies so far, it’s time the Stat style guitars are released next.

Great new release from Gibson.
The Billie Joe Armstrong Signature is a no-frills guitar that features a solid slab body and single bridge humbucker.
According to the Green Day frontman, this is “by far the coolest guitar on the planet”. Gotta agree with him since he’s been such a legend.
Available in three finishes – Ebony, Maraschino Cherry and Sonic Blue, and retails at US1399 with hardcase.
