ASH BURL TOP ON MAHOGANY BODY
An exotic wood, ash burl is used on top for a one-of-a-kind unique appearance that boasts deep 3-dimentional multi-layered look we call it “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.

HARDTAIL BRIDGE WITH STRING-THRU BODY
The strings-thru-body hardtail bridge improve sustain as well as enhancing resonance through the Mahogany body.

1 VOLUME & 1 TONE (PUSH/PULL), 3-WAY PICKUP SELECTOR
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.

RAINDROP INLAY ON THE MACASSAR EBONY FINGERBOARD
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.

SPOKE NUT HOTROD TRUSS ROD
The spoke nut hotrod truss rod improves neck stability as well as ease of neck bow adjustment.

CORT® STAGGERED LOCKING MACHINE HEADS
The locking machine heads provide superb tuning stability by eliminating string slippage at the posts while facilitating quick string changes.
