KX500MS, the first ever multi-scale guitar developed by Cort in 2018, was praised and loved by hardcore fans and extreme guitarists all over the world. Now it’s back with modern updates and a new name, the KX507 Multi Scale. This seven-string beast is now equipped with the multi-voiced Fishman® Fluence Modern Humbucker set, enabling the KX507 Multi Scale to explore further into limitless possibilities in the tonal spectrum. The KX507 Multi Scale also features 25.5” – 27” multi-scale frets with the neutral fret now on the 8th position for better playability, a mesmerizing Poplar Burl top on Mahogany body, 5-piece Maple and Purple Heart neck, Macassar Ebony fretboard and an updated volume and tone knob position for easier reach.
POPLAR BURL TOP ON MAHOGANY BODY
The strikingly figured Poplar Burl top and Mahogany body complement each other perfectly to produce a warm yet punchy high-midrange sound that will cut through the mix with authority.
FISHMAN® FLUENCE MODERN 7-STRING HUMBUCKER SET
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.
1 VOLUME & 1 TONE PUSH/PULL KNOB WITH 3 WAY PICKUP SELECTOR SWITCH
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.
- Volume Knob Push/Pull: Voice1/Voice2
- Tone Knob Push/Pull: Full Humbucker/Coil-Split
INDIVIDUAL HARDTAIL BRIDGE
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.
7-STRING MULTI-SCALE (25.5-27″)
Get tight and punchy low-end for the low-B and low-E strings with the extended scale length while maintaining the familiar feel and tension on the treble strings for speedy runs and string-bending. The neutral fret is now on the 8th position for more natural spread angle of the frets, ensuring better playability even on the lower frets.
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.
5PC 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.
SPOKE NUT HOTROD TRUSSROD
The spoke nut Hotrod truss rod ensures smooth and precise setting of the neck bow. Often overlooked by many guitarists, the neck bow (or relief) is very critical for the best possible playability. This spoke nut truss rod adjustment feature allows the player to dial in the exact amount of neck bow depending the player’s technique and playing style.
