New Guitar Review: Cort Guitars EVL-X7


It gets even better with Cort Guitars expanding their highly successful EVL series with the new EVL-X7. Cort Guitars, now an over 50-years old company, continue to upgrade and improve their value-oriented line of instruments.

Notably, the EVL-X7 has upgraded hardware and electronics but keeps to the classics with a bolt-on maple neck, rosewood fretboard with 25 ½-inch scale and EVL custom inlay markers. The mahogany body holds a pair of active EMG H pickups; an 81 in the bridge position and 85 by the neck. Electronics include a single volume and tone controls and a three-way lever pickup switch. The EVL-X7 finishes with black nickel hardware, die cast tuners and D'Addario strings.

It sells for $750 MSRP and for much more, check: www.cortguitars.com.
