The Jackson JS Series King V JS32 Guitar is one of those models that must be experienced to be believed. Not only does it have the looks, but is plays effortlessly well, and sounds like a beast. If you like your music on the extreme side and want a guitar that best represents you, then the King V JS32 will do you proud.
Awesome King V body
The Jackson JS Series King V JS32 is every bit as awesome as the name suggests. Built using poplar, the weight is kept to a minimum, which lends itself perfectly to a light-handed playing feel. The finish is the winner here though, combining a black body paint job, which is skirted by white bevels that command the eyes' attention. Not only that but the white bevels lead to white neck binding that traces along and around the headstock to create a mesmerizingly high-quality finish at such an affordable price.
Reinforced neck design
Jackson appreciate that the King V is not going to be gathering dust at home, but is going to be taking its rightful place on centre stage. 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. The open V-shape body removes any obstacles from your path, giving you unfettered access to the neck in its entirety.
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 King V JS32 is equipped with a pair of Jackson's high output humbucking pickups, which deliver a roaring sonic blast that would make any metaller proud. From tight and articulate to fat and unabashed, you're sure to have plenty of fun exploring the tonal potential of this beauty. Control over the pickups comes in the form of a master volume pot, a mater tone pot, and a three-way pickup 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.
