Cort Releases the New X700 Triality

Cort Releases the New X700 Triality

The Cort X700 Triality has a body made of Swamp Ash – a lightweight, bright sounding tone wood notable for eye-catching grain patterns and a highly resonant frequency response.

The Cort X700 Triality is a visual stunner, with a body made of Swamp Ash – a lightweight, bright sounding tone wood notable for eye-catching grain patterns and a highly resonant frequency response. Specifically, this material facilitates a lightly scooped midrange that makes high frequencies especially distinct. The distinctive percussive qualities of Swamp ash make this guitar sing, whether the instrument is picked hard or lightly fingerpicked. A handsome, contoured arm cut adds to the X700 Triality’s singularly elegant appearance, while also enhancing playing comfort. Such modification accommodates ergonomic optimization without removing unnecessary quantities of wood.

The Triality’s aesthetics are further elevated with striking luminlay side dot position markers, ensuring players can easily determine fretboard position, even in the darkest of venues. Finally, a roasted maple and walnut neck supplies both focused sound that works in tandem with the Swamp ash body’s resonance, as well as stability and strength.

The X700 Triality’s hardware is another significant contributing factor to the guitar’s impressive overall performance. Cort Staggered Locking tuners are a simple, effective way of tuning that provides unmatched stability and ease of string-changes. The CFA-III Tremolo System benefits from metal injection molding manufacturing technique with stainless steel used on the saddle, bridge plate, and block, resulting in a well-articulated sound with greater sustain. Pull-ups and push-downs are facilitated via a recessed tremolo bridge, allowing for enhanced versatility. The X700 Triality’s spoke nut truss rod adjustment feature provides the player with precise adjustment options to neck bow, suiting an individual’s playing style and technique. Furthermore, wide and tall stainless-steel frets offer quick response, clear tones, and superior corrosion resistance.

The “Triality” name references the model’s three pickups, which afford guitarists even greater versatility than the already-popular dual humbucker-equipped Cort X700 Duality. Fishman Fluence Single Width Pickups provide classically clear, chiming single coil tones without hum. Meanwhile, the guitar’s Fluence Open Core Classic Humbucker boasts three distinct settings for unrivalled versatility: Voice 1 replicates vintage PAF tones; Voice 2 provides a hot-rodded humbucker response; and Voice 3 creates a muscular, overwound single coil sound.

Whether racing up and down the neck for incendiary leads, gently strumming chords, or fingerpicking, guitarists’ needs are met (and exceeded!) with the Cort X700 Triality, an eye-catching, feature-loaded instrument designed to excel on-stage, in the studio, or during practice at home.
