The CORSA Guitar


The CORSA Guitar

 
Corsa guitars sound better because they are made differently. We are forward thinking, rather than being tied to the conformal false premise that “the old ones sound better.” The simple fact is, they don’t, and such myths, often espoused by “experts” on Internet forums who have never even touched a “real one,” provide the excuse for why modern guitars are lacking in tone, giving guitar makers license to produce guitars that are severely, and in some cases knowingly, tone compromised.

Today’s player is confronted with sparse choices other than to buy a guitar that is made the conventional way and begin the expensive, but mostly fruitless quest to modify their guitars after the fact to acquire some semblance of tonal response, not realizing that the lack of tone is “built in.” I am here to tell you that it doesn’t have to be that way. Corsa guitars sound better because we understand exactly how to extract maximum tone, starting with how the guitar is finished and ending with improved superior hardware. The result is a guitar that needs nothing more than a good player’s soul to make beautiful music. If you’re ready to break from tradition and experience what guitar tone SHOULD be, then a Corsa guitar is for you.

The secret is in how Corsa guitars are finished and my own unique method of chambering on all models, which reduces weight and adds substantially to the acoustic resonance of the guitar, with more sustain than other methods of chambering. While most manufacturers target their guitars to the buyer who thinks shiny and perfectly finished guitars are “normal,” sapping most of the natural resonance in the process, my guitars have a “Player’s Finish,” which is specifically designed to allow the natural resonance of the mahogany to remain intact. I say, “If you can feel the wood, you will hear the tone.”

Corsa guitars have an aged, “NTN” Finish, and I don’t obsess over minor finishing flaws that other manufacturers would reject as unacceptable, while completely dismissing the fact that their guitars are tone dead in their quest for such perfection. In other words, expect a Corsa guitar to have perfect tone and playability, but don’t expect a guitar rivaling fine furniture that looks pretty, but is tone dead. That’s not to say that a Corsa guitar isn’t a beautiful thing. The difference is, you get beautiful AND better tone than anything else. With others, all you can expect is beauty and/or “period correctness,” with no tone.
