Cort KX500 Etched Deep Violet

Cort KX500 Etched Deep Violet

For modern players who seek top-tier aesthetics, parts and materials in a guitar that can cover multiple genres, from djent metal to modern to prog rock. Inspired from the already popular KX508MS and KX500MS, the new KX500 Etched is the new flagship model of the KX Series in conventional 6-string setup, equipped with Fishman Fluence Modern Humbuckers that are gaining popularity among serious players for its versatility.

 

An exotic wood, ash burl is used on top for a one-of-a-kind unique appearance that boasts the deep 3-dimentional multi-layered look we call “etched”. The wood’s sonic character is brilliant and sparkling with a solid punchy midrange, making it a great combination with warm and thick sounding mahogany body. The 5-piece Maple and Purple Heart neck not only provides strength and stability but a strong and focused sound in conjunction with the body’s acoustic resonance.

 

Original and totally re-imagined, Fishman Fluence pickups are free from the hum, noise and frustrating inductance issues that plague even the most coveted wire—wound pickups— revealing pure, uncorrupted and musical tone.

 

While maintaining a simple look, the ingenious push/pull function on both the volume and tone knob in combination with 3 way pickup selector unleashes the full potential of the Fishman® Fluence Modern Humbucker set on KX500.
- Volume Knob Push/Pull: Voice1/Voice2
- Tone Knob Push/Pull: Full Humbucker/Coil-Split

 

Very similar to Rosewood in both looks and sound, the Macassar Ebony produces a deep rich sound with sweet yet cutting highs. The new “Raindrop” fingerboard inlay designed specifically for this model provides a distinctive look.

 

The locking machine heads provide superb tuning stability by eliminating string slippage at the posts while facilitating quick string changes.
