Features

Ash Burl Top on Mahogany Body

An exotic wood, ash burl is used on top for a one-of-a-kind unique appearance that boasts deep 3-dimentional multi-layered look we call it “etched”. The wood’s sonic character is brilliant and sparkling with a solid punchy midrange, making it a great combination with warm and thick sounding mahogany body.

Multi-Voiced Fishman®Fluence Modern Humbucker

Original and totally re-imagined, Fishman Fluence pickups are free from the hum, noise and frustrating inductance issues that plague even the most coveted wire—wound pickups— revealing pure, uncorrupted and musical tone.

1 Volume & 1 Tone Push/Pull Knob with 3 Way Pickup Selector

While maintaining a simple look, the ingenious push/pull function on both the volume and tone knob in combination with 3 way pickup selector unleashes the full potential of the Fishman® Fluence Modern Humbucker set on KX500.

  • Volume Knob Push/Pull: Voice1/Voice2
  • Tone Knob Push/Pull: Full Humbucker/Coil-Split

Hardtail Bridge with String-Thru Body

The strings-thru-body hardtail bridge improve sustain as well as enhancing resonance through the Mahogany body.

Raindrop Inlay on the Macassar Ebony Fingerboard

Very similar to Rosewood in both looks and sound, the Macassar Ebony produces a deep rich sound with sweet yet cutting highs. The new “Raindrop” fingerboard inlay designed specifically for this model provides a distinctive look.

Spoke Nut Hotrod Trussrod

The spoke nut hotrod truss rod improves neck stability as well as ease of neck bow adjustment.

Cort® Staggered Locking Machineheads

The locking machine heads provide superb tuning stability by eliminating string slippage at the posts while facilitating quick string changes.

5pcs Maple & Purpleheart Neck

The 5-piece Maple and Purple Heart neck not only provides strength and stability but a strong and focused sound in conjunction with the body’s acoustic resonance.
