Cort KX307 Multi Scale Electric Guitar Cort has expanded its KX Series of electric guitars with the introduction of the KX307 Multi Scale . The seven-string model combines Cort ’ s signature fret configuration and specially-designed PowerBar pickups .
The KX307 Multi Scale features the same quality and features of Cort ’ s other multi-scale , multi-string guitars . The build starts with a mahogany body that produces warm , deep resonance that ’ s ideal for the low-end growl associated with this model . The neck ’ s roasted maple wood is treated in an oxygen-free oven at a high temperature , stabilizing and developing enhanced stability , bold tone , and a golden-brown vintage look . The KX307 aesthetics are topped off with a choice of either an open pore mahogany or open pore black body finish , and a teardrop acryl black inlay on the fretboard .
The seven-string multi-scale measures 25.5 to 27 in ., giving the KX307 a tighter low-end for the low-B and low-E strings on the extended scale length . This design effectively maintains the familiar feel and tension on treble strings for speedy runs and string-bending . The neutral fret is in the eighth position for a more natural spread angle of the frets .
