Cort Levels-Up the X700 Duality II with All-New Features

The updated X700 Duality II features the addition of the latest Fishman humbucker set and a unique 5-way pickup switching system.


The X700 Duality II is forged from a flamed maple top on a mahogany body, ensuring a great balance between warm yet full-sounding lows and bright, transparent highs that can cut through a mix with authority. The tonewood combination forms a strong sonic foundation for this guitar, which is available in two finishes that play on the duality theme: Lava Burst and Polar Ice Burst. Cort has chosen Fishman Fluence Open Core Classic Humbucker pickups for the X700 Duality II. The multi-voice set now incorporates a new third voice with a single coil. Wound humbuckers, when “split” to create a single-coil sound, can be weak and unconvincing. However, the new Voice 3 delivers authentic single-coil tone that only Fluence technology can deliver, according to Fishman. To further enhance the versatility of the X700 Duality II, Cort adds a CFA-III Tremolo, which has a significant influence on the instrument’s acoustic characteristics. This system is made with a metal injection manufacturing technique that molds stainless steel for a big, bold, and articulate sound as well as enhanced sustain. The recessed tremolo bridge allows the player to pull up to raise the pitch and push down to lower it, providing further tremolo versatility.

Don't get me wrong, I'm all for blues music, but the blues scale can yield beguiling musical results that bear little resemblance to the traditional blues—particularly if one looks at (and listens to) the scale from a different point of view.
