The Jackson JS Series Kelly JS32 Electric Guitar in Snow White offers the awesome angular beast at a price that everyone can appreciate. With select tonewoods, versatile electronics, and robust hardware at your disposal, Jackson have once again thought of everything to ensure the Kelly JS32 is an exceptional model for its price.
Slick Kelly body
Since it burst onto the scene in the early '80s, the Kelly has been the weapon of choice for many hard rockers and metallers. Thanks to its balanced and lightweight feel, superb playability, and not least its unabashed style, it quickly became an instant classic. The JS32 series Kelly adheres to those same principles, employing poplar as the body tonewood to guarantee a lightweight feel that makes it a joy to perform with. Finished with a cool snow white paint job, the body is protected by a layer of gloss to prevent unwanted scratches and blemishes.
Reinforced neck design
Jackson appreciate that the Kelly is a guitar that is built for the stage, and is going to be shown off. With that in mind, they also appreciate that humidity and temperature changes can have a devastating effect on a guitar's neck. Therefore, they have reinforced the bolt-on single-piece maple neck using graphite, which prevents unwanted twisting and warping over time. You can rest assured that where you take your guitar, it will be ready to rock every time. Thanks to a satin finish, your hand can glide along the neck with ease, free from unwanted stickiness or tackiness from impeding your movement.
Partnered with the neck is a dark rosewood fingerboard, which has 24 jumbo frets that are decorated with pearloid sharkfin position inlays. Jackson's customary compound radius fingerboard creates a natural feel for the fingers as they navigate the playing surface. Paired with the speed neck profile, you can rest assured that every effort has been made to establish a lightning fast playing feel.
Jackson high output humbuckers
The Jackson JS Series Kelly JS32 is equipped with a pair of their high output humbuckers, which generate a punchy and defiant output that puts a wide range of tones at the ready. Everything from crisp cleans that could cut through glass to headbanger-worthy aggressive chunk is present and correct. Control over the pickups comes in the form of a master volume pot, a mater tone pot, and a three-way pickups selector switch to keep everything simple yet effective.
The body is fitted with a Floyd Rose Licensed Jackson double locking tremolo bridge, which lays the foundation for pinpoint accurate vibrato control. The Floyd Rose R3 locking nut anchors each string so that no matter how much you dive and wail with the bridge, your strings remain firmly intact and ready for action. The feel of the bridge is highly responsive, giving you complete mastery over your vibrato.
