The Meranti body has similar tonal characteristics to Mahogany with a strong mid-midrange that will cut through the mix with authority for rhythm while providing sweet highs for singing leads.
The EMG humbuckers feature a traditional open coil design with an emphasis on balance between clarity and high output and excels not only in metal and hard rock but can be dialed back for other styles such as blues, pop and country. The middle single-coil has an Alnico 5 magnet for a vintage twang and can be combined with the humbuckers in the super versatile HSH configuration for a wide range of useful sounds.
The Cort Double Locking II tremolo assures perfect tuning stability through the most extreme arm action for aggressive soloing or heavy riffing. The body recess means harmonic squeals raised to the stratosphere as well as dive-bombs into the abyss with the assurance that the strings will come back to tune perfectly.
The simple yet versatile control layout provides all the sounds the player needs while allowing the player to focus on playing and making music.
Both comfort and appearance was enhanced with an elegantly contoured arm cut on the top. This modification to the body has been carefully laid out on the bodies of the X guitars for maximum comfort without removing unnecessary amounts of wood. The lines of the X body are graceful for aesthetic beauty as well as for ergonomic considerations.
The hard maple neck provides strength and stability while delivering a defined and punchy sound that mates well with virtually any type of body and fingerboard woods.
Jatoba is a very dense and stiff wood that makes it ideal for the fingerboard usage. Jatoba produces strong fundamentals and volume projection with an emphasis on the high-mids.
