Cort CR250 Guitar Review

The Classic Rock Series from Cort Guitarsfeatures a single cutaway, arched maple top and set-in neck construction. The CR series are all-new for the 2011, we tried out CR250.

My first impressions of CR250 is that it’s a solid guitar for the money. I found it available online for under $400.
It feels lighter that expected. It’s construction, hardware, fit, and finish is about what you can expect for a factory made guitar.

    • Great sustain
    • It lighter than expected
    • Priced in the $400 range, excellent value for the money
    • Nice tone for playing dirty blues with heavy distortion.


    • The CR250 plays loose, not a problem if you like that feeling. Some setup changes may alleviate it

    The Verdict

    The Cort CR250 is about what you’d expect from a $400+ priced guitar in terms of construction and finish. The Cort excels if you like mega sustain, bluesy tones, and a looser feeling to the fretboard.

    We give 4 out of 5 guitars.
