For 2018, South Korean guitar giant Cort is redesigning its heavy-orientated X Series line, and the rather tasty-looking flagship of the series, the X500, has now officially launched.
The X500 boasts a neck-through design and swamp ash body, with a maple and Panga Panga neck, topped off by an ebony fretboard.
EMG’s classic 60 and 81 active humbucker pairing provides the tonal firepower, while a Floyd Rose Special locking vibrato delivers whammy thrills.
Two finishes are available: Open Pore Trans Grey and Open Pore Jean Burst.
Given the metal-leaning model’s $1,099 price tag, it’s hard to argue with the spec on offer. Head over to Cort Guitars for more info.
