The sleek and thoroughly modern X Series guitars are built for speed, power and aggression. The extreme contours on the body and the neck joint provide comfort as well as a distinctively high-tech look. The super fast neck and large jumbo frets facilitate speed and precision in your playing – from over-the-top shred to pummeling metal rhythm.

6-SCREW VINTAGE TREMOLO
A solid vintage-style tremolo system with tuning stability and ease of string changes.
The Powersound PSEG-1F & PSEG-1R (H-H) pickups provide classic humbucker punch and tone with a quality/value quotient that cannot be beat.
MODERN U-SHAPE NECK PROFILE
Designed for maximum speed, the U-shape profile is ideal for high-energy technical genres requiring fast alternate picking and blazing legato and tapping techniques.

The Cort company, as its current incarnation, was founded in 1960 as an importer of pianos. The business slowly evolved from a piano importer to a manufacturer and sales division then finally into a guitar manufacturer in 1973. At this early stage of the company’s history, Soo Doh was strictly an OEM supplier to other foreign brand name companies. The company eventually changed its name to Cort Musical Instruments, focused on guitars and released the first Cort-branded guitars in 1982. www.cortguitars.com
