Cort’s most aggressive models and designs have been represented by their KX series for over two decades at this point. Characterized by sleek stylish looks, unique features, and a determination to explore the realm of extreme guitars, the Cort KX series has something to offer even the most progressive of guitarists.
The introduction of the KX700 Evertune holds this aggressive approach true as Cort introduces a completely redesigned body contour for a more aggressive and organic look, Seymour Duncan Sentient & Nazgul Humbucker set for that center- of-the-earth growl, and, for the first time ever, an EverTune bridge system for unrivalled, dare we say, ‘perfect’ tuning stability.
Let’s take a closer look at the new KX700, and specifically the the Evertune bridge system that makes it such a game changer.
The Evertune Bridge
As we mentioned, this is the first time Cort have released an Evertune equipped guitar.
What exactly does that mean?
The EverTune is a revolutionary, patented, all-mechanical guitar bridge system that keeps guitars in tune under any conditions. Using nothing but clever physics in combination with a system of springs and levers, EverTune maintains constant tension on each individual string, keeping the guitar in perfect tuning indefinitely.
Beyond that, this constant tension balance allows the string to stay at a constant pitch even under bending. (if you choose to set your guitar up this way)
What else makes this guitar great?
Ash Top on Mahogany Body
The combination of the ash top on the mahogany body ensures a great balance between warm yet full sounding lows and bright and transparent highs, not to mention beautiful wood grain of the ash top for a more natural organic aesthetic.
Seymour Duncan Sentient & Nazgul Humbucker Set
Take your guitar to the center of the earth with the Nazgul and Sentient high output passive humbucker pickups. The Nazgul combines a large ceramic magnet with custom winding specs resulting in a perfect blend of note articulation, saturation, pick attack, and one of the most brutal “chugs” you’ll ever hear from a humbucker.
The Sentient neck delivers a balanced, versatile tone with pristine cleans and fluid leads under high gain.
Stainless Steel Frets
Stainless steel frets boast excellent resistance to corrosion as well as greatly enhanced playability. The wide and tall fret-type offers a fast response, good articulation when playing chords, clear tone when playing single note lines and silky string bends.
5pcs Maple & Walnut Neck
The 5-piece maple and walnut neck not only provides strength and stability but a strong and focused sound in conjunction with the body’s acoustic resonance.
