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.
BASSWOOD BODY WITH MAPLE NECK AND ROSEWOOD FRETBOARD
This classic and proven wood combination provides a balanced and rich sound strong in the midrange from the basswood body with warmth from the rosewood fretboard and solid punch from the maple neck.
The X-4 features two EMG open coil pickups and the coil-tap function for flexibility and versatility in an affordable package.
COIL-TAP (PUSH-PULL TONE KNOB)
The push-pull tone knob potentiometer allows for the humbucker’s dual coils to be split into single-coil, providing a brighter and glassier sound ideal for genres such such as pop, funk and certain styles of jazz.
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.
2.9mm jumbo frets allow the fingers to fly up and down the fretboard with ease and authority.
A 2-point pivot tremolo with a vintage-style look and excellent tuning stability, it also provides modern up-down functionality and solid transfer of string vibration to the body.
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
