Cort has updated its Cort X700 Duality to Version II, incorporating design input from progressive guitarist Hedras Ramos. The new version of this affordable high-performance guitar is loaded with Fishman Fluence Open Core Classic humbuckers, and incorporates a mahogany body. Has Cort designed a winner?

Released in 2019, the previous incarnation of Cort’s flagship model came with a swamp ash body. V2 uses mahogany, giving you a slightly different tone and feel. It’s loaded with a set of the Fishman Fluence Open Core Classic humbucking pickups and has some unique switching possibilities via the five-way blade switch. What’s interesting here is the guita’s capability to access a range of versatile coil pairings, including a combination of both humbucker inner-coils at the same time. You also have a a master volume knob and push-pull tone pot, so you can get single-coil tones from the humbuckers as well.
