The top-of-the-line of the KX Series, the KX500 ups the ante with its 648~685mm(25.5~27") multi-scale neck and EMG 707 Soapbar humbuckers mounted at an angle. Featuring boutique-level materials like Poplar Burl on Swamp Ash body, 5pcs Maple and Purple Heart neck and Macassar Ebony fretboard and individual bridge for each string, the KX500MS can go from over-the-top brutal to a sweet purr to cover a wide range of musical styles and genres.
7 STRING MULTI-SCALE ELECTRIC GUITAR
The multi-scale construction produces a more defined, punchier, tighter and deeper low end – especially on the low-B and low-E strings.
POPLAR BURL TOP ON SWAMP ASH BODY
The strikingly figured Poplar Burl top and Swamp Ash complement each other perfectly to produce a warm yet punchy high-midrange sound that will cut through the mix with authority.
EMG 707 PICKUPS
The EMG 707 has established itself as a trend-setting industry standard for 7-string electric guitars. Loud, clear, articulate, sensitive and powerful, the EMG 707 can do it all.
INDIVIDUAL HARDTAIL BRIDGES WITH STRING THRU BODY
Individual hardtail bridge unit for each string that feeds through the body results in greatly improved sustain, superb string separation for greater articulation and precise intonation.
1 VOLUME, 1 TONE, 3-WAY PICKUP SELECTOR
The simple 1 volume, 1 tone and 3-way toggle switch controls provide a variety of great sounds and allows you to focus on your playing.
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.
LOCKING MACHINE HEADS
Locking machine heads provide excellent tuning stability and facilitate quick string changes.
SPOKE NUT HOTROD TRUSSROD
The spoke nut hotrod truss rod improves neck stability as well as ease of neck bow adjustment.
5-PIECE MAPLE & PURPLE HEART NECK
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.
