Captivate your patrons’ attention playing timeless classics on the Cort KX5 FR Electric Guitar. It features a double cutaway profile for effortless access to the top frets. The double-locking tremolo helps the guitar stay in tune even when it is under the influence of a heavy attack. This instrument is an ideal pick for seasoned musicians and budding guitarists alike. Its wide tonal range makes for accommodation of a broad spectrum of genres. The KX5 FR represents an ideal combination of vintage design and contemporary appeal. Furthermore, white dot inlays on the fretboard impart an exquisite appeal to the overall design. Given a scale length of 25.5”, you obtain bright sounds with superior clarity in the higher overtones. Therefore, if you wish to walk the red carpet with the likes of Metthew Bellamy and Frank Gambale, the KX5 FR is what you need.
The body of the Cort KX5 FR Electric Guitar is made from judiciously selected basswood, which is preferred by luthiers and touring guitarists for its light weight. This tonewood variety offers balanced tonality with a beefy midrange and adequate grind. In addition, basswood supports complex and fast playing styles. Thus, this guitar caters to the requirements of heavy metal and hard rock. This guitar is a wise investment for musicians wanting to add that extra edge to their performance.
Strum Away to Success
The fretboard of the Cort KX5 FR Electric Guitar is constructed from rosewood, widely used in guitar building for its strength and durability. The sound produced by this tonewood is characterized by deep growls, bright treble notes, and a scooped midrange. The oily pores of rosewood absorb undesirable, stray overtones to produce a crisp sound rich in fundamentals. Coming to the neck, the bolt-on construction allows for enhanced control while playing attack-heavy styles. The double cutaway profile of the neck facilitates quick access to all the top frets of the guitar, thus making for sufficient freedom of movement into the upper registers.
Power in Your Hands
The Cort KX5 FR Electric Guitar is powered by the Motherbucker MB-2F and MF-2R (H-H) pickups, which provide extended sustain. These pickups deliver an aggressive, punchy sound with muscular mids and tight lows. The Alnico V magnets add a great deal of bite and sparkle to the tones, making this guitar suitable for playing the jazz and metal genres.
The double-locking tremolo bridge allows you to make intricate adjustments for the best results. Thanks to die-cast tuners, you obtain superior tuning stability. The corrosion-resistant D'Addario strings provide long-lasting tones with superior intonation.
