Cort is expanding its its KX series of electric guitars at NAMM with the introduction of the new 7-string KX500FF. The KX500FF offers updated hardware, a double-cutaway for easy access to the neck, and a new-to-series fanned-fret design that the company says improves tonal depth and clarity.
The KX500FF features EMG 707 pickups and its fanned frets provide a 25.5’’to 27’’ multiscale and further strengthen the low B, allowing for even string tension and tone. A single hardtail bridge with string-thru-body design improves resonance and sustain. A volume knob, tone knob and three-way toggle switch provide further control, while locking machineheads improve tuning stability as well as facilitate easy and fast string changes.
This model is available in two colours, Star Dust Black (SDB) and Star Dust Green (SDG), each created with a poplar burl top on swamp ash body. The neck is 5-piece maple inlaid with two long streaks of purpleheart. A Macassar ebony fingerboard corresponds to the black binding and black nickel hardware.
