Cort and Hedras collaborate on new X700 Mutility – a modern multi-scale design
Designed with prog guitarist Hedras
Cort’s new X700 Mutility model was designed in conjunction with prog prodigy Hedras. The company’s latest Multiscale offering has some great features and hardware choices that are sure to suit a lot of modern playing styles.
Cort X700 Mutility
The new for 2021 Cort X700 Mutility has a 24.75” – 25.5” multi-scale roasted maple neck and fretboard with stainless steel frets, and a set of the very much in vogue Fishman Fluence Modern humbuckers. The pickups have two voices which you can select using the push/pull function on the volume, or split the humbuckers with the push/pull on the tone control. A standard three-way blade switch selects the pickup.
“Mutility is a made up word that means a combination of Duality, which was the previous model I’ve been using, with Utility and Multiscale”. – Hedras
The Cort X Series is aimed squarely at players of more modern styles, and the X700 Mutility model fits that bill perfectly. With its combination of maple and ash top on a mahogany body, it is designed to be tonally balanced. The guitar also utilises individual hardtail bridges for each string, to help with clarity and sustain. All these little touches should add up to a great sounding instrument.
Overall, it seems like a very versatile guitar that should appeal to players of more modern styles. Personally, I like this new design quite a bit, and will try and get my hands on one to test out in the coming year.
