The KX300 takes the KX Series to a new boutique level of quality and features with Spalted Maple top on Mahogany body, EMG RetroActive Super77 dual humbuckers with the classic zebra open-coil look and two cool-looking open pore sunburst finishes.
Bold Tone Woods
The KX300 features a mahogany body and Bolt-On construction for a thick yet punchy and powerful tone that matches its intense design and styling. While modeled after the modern style double-cutaway body, standing out from its class for enhanced playability as well as its unique visual style. The striking Maple top not only looks amazing but complements the Mahogany body to produce a very balanced tone – warm, rich, and full yet cutting, defined and punchy.
Active Pickups and Natural Tone
Designed with today’s metal sounds in mind, the EMG RetroActive Super77 pickups provide a very clear high output with superb articulation and focus on the low strings and a singing high-end. The strings-thru-body hardtail bridge improve sustain as well as enhancing resonance through the Mahogany body.
Raindrop Inlay on the Jabota Fingerboard
Jatoba is a very dense and stiff wood that makes it ideal for the fingerboard usage. Jatoba produces strong fundamentals and volume projection with an emphasis on the high-mids. The new “Raindrop” fingerboard inlay designed specifically for this model provides a distinctive look.
