Anonymous 's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Trs class and reliable"

Cort KX5
Basswood body with srigraphie Bloody Punisher, Bolt black hardware, Tune-O-Matic, the through strings, pickups "Motherbuckers" double coil.


Like the other models in the KX SERIES, this guitar is trs enjoyable play, the neck is thin, the body is well balanced and the config is essential.


The MODEL possde a push / pull switch that allows the pickups in single coil, very useful for me (I play mainly mtal with this instrument) but more apprciable.
In doubles, with distortion, the sound of the pickups is powerful enough although a bit "fat". Basically it will be necessary to benefit from Motorhead for the Steve Vai. Revert to finesse it, but it does not matter given the bias Aesthetics.


This is my main guitar, I possd many others but I always come back to it. Its simplicity and effectiveness littralement charm me we are really facing a reliable and well RALIS (I changed 36 times tunings, moving from Mi Si and accuracy t has never taken into default).
The report quality price on this SERIES is incredible, well above what I possd in this price range (A piphone holding agreement catastrophic).

Cort KX5
Basswood body with binding, maple neck, rosewood fingerboard, 2 humbuckers Mighty Mite, TonePro bridge with strings through body, 24 frets. From classic!


The handle is typed stratocaster, very fine and playable. The instrument is lightweight and relatively thin, with an ergonomic design that allows you to play for hours without tiring.


The Mighty Mite pickups are very versatile, they propose to enter a split single-coil (amazing on a guitar so cheap) and went out with ease in most styles. The output level is more than enough to play metal.


Let's be honest, this instrument could be sold much more expensive without its price becomes shocking. The finish and specifications are really on top and show the seriousness of Cort in the manufacture of instruments but affordable treatment.
I see no failure to report ... I had the instruments to three times the price not so good.

I leave you the link to Cort to know what it takes on the characteristics.
It is a good guitar first prize so the features are conventional.
Otherwise, for my part, I think she has a pretty face. Not aggressive enough for my taste, but it's not bad!


It's now 8 months since I started the guitar with her and, without really being able to compare, I find it very comfortable. The handle is nice (C), quite late. Access to acute it's easy (and I have small fingers!).
Weight level, it is quite light (lighter than the Cort G250 I tried).
As a beginner I found it easy to understand.


Its level. The right side of this is I have no experience no comparison.
I play on a Line6 Spider II 30W and I get a good metal sound (but no more).
Level clear sound with microphones splits the sound is pretty average (but I use it too).
I think the sound quality is equivalent to its price. That is to say: We will be content.
I put 7 because for that price there are better and much worse it must be rare.


Well this is my first guitar. At the moment it is still the only one I have. I'm happy. I can do almost everything what I want. For the price I think it's worth it.
I would do this choice? Yes and no. I would do because I know it suits me and I would do no story to try something else.
Anyway for me price / quality ratio impeccable.
