Cort has expanded its lineup of eight-string electric guitars by introducing the KX805 Multi Scale II – an updated version of the brand’s original eight-string multi-scale instrument.

Naturally, the newest iteration features a slightly souped-up spec sheet, with the KX508 II favoring an okoume body over its predecessor’s swamp ash alternative. The poplar burl top remains, though, as does the Mariana Blue Burst finish.
