The Yorktown is a superbly crafted traditional hollow-body electric guitar that delivers a big, warm and full-bodied tone that its appearance implies. Featuring the old-world construction methods that contribute to its classic sound, the Yorktown features a spruce top, maple back and sides and a set-in Canadian hard maple neck. Other features include a floating bridge with fine-tuning capability, an elegant harp tailpiece, block inlays on the fretboard, vintage-style tuners, and a set of the versatile and sweet-sounding ClassicRocker-II humbuckers

The Yorktown is all about big and bold tone. To fully maximize the Spruce top, Maple back and sides and the hard rock Maple neck, Cort’s craftsmen have carefully set this neck into the body using a classic dovetail joint. This delivers enhanced sustain and tone.

The Yorktown is equipped with a floating tune-o-matic bridge for fine-tuning and perfect intonation needed for playing complex chords all over the neck. The tailpiece is a classic harp-style which imparts class and elegance while providing tuning functionality and stability.

To maximize the big bold sound of the Yorktown, Cort equipped it with two ClassicRocker-II pickups. Each humbucker is overwound for a little hotter performance than a typical PAF pickup.

Starting on 2 January 2017, you will receive a certificate of origin from us with every purchase to document the fact that the palisander or bubinga wood used in your instrument comes from legal harvesting and trade.
Please take notice that the German customs authorities need up to 14 business-days to prepare all necessary export documents for us. This will delay the total shipping time.

The reason is the following:
At the World Wildlife Conference in Johannesburg in September 2016, all palisander and bubinga species were added to the so-called CITES Appendix II. The inclusion in CITES II means that starting on 2 January 2017 trade with these wood species will not be prohibited entirely but will be subject to restrictions. This will involve a lot of additional bookkeeping for producers, wholesalers, retailers, and guitar makers, but not for you.

What do the new trade restrictions mean for musicians and owners of instruments?

No additional verification documents are necessary for ownership as such.

Travel inside the EU:

No special precautions are necessary for travel inside the EU.

Travel to non-EU countries:

Instruments made of the wood species in question may be taken to non-EU countries without verification documents as long as the weight of the wood protected by CITES II in all musical instruments together is less than 10 KG. The weight of transport containers and accessories is not included.

Resale:
A verification document is recommended for resale. As a rule, this is the commercial invoice (which you receive from us) or a certificate confirming that the instrument was made using legal CITES II wood. If you do not have such documentation, the customs officials or the competent regional authorities may confiscate the products if they are being offered for private sale. If you have kept your invoices for instruments purchased before 2 January 2017 or can provide other clear evidence (e.g., inventory in your tax return, import documents...) that the instruments were purchased before 2 January 2017, you should keep these documents in a safe place and leave a copy with the instruments. No further measures are necessary for the time being.
