The Jackson Pro Series King V KV Electric Guitar is an unapologetic metal machine, producing crushing tones and commanding attention with its striking razor-sharp design. Whether you're playing a small club or smashing out riffs on the stadium stage, the Pro Series King V KV takes no prisoners.
Sublime V-shape body
The body is a streamlined masterpiece, with sleek lines and clean edges that are the stuff of legend. Built using mahogany, it is a solid workhorse that produces a rapturous energy that is delivered with laser-like precision. The bevelled edges serve to enhance the visual aesthetic, whilst the sloping V-shape removes any obstacles from your path for a freedom to roam unlike any other guitar. If total mastery over the neck is what you're looking for, you've come to the right place. The paintwork is protected by a gloss finish, preventing unwanted blemishes from affecting its intensity.
The neck-through-body construction is designed to optimise the high-speed playability whilst ensuring durability and strength. Further reinforcement is provided by a pair of graphite rods, which prevent twisting or warping from damaging the neck through changes in humidity, temperature or constant battering night after night. The 25.5-inch scale length ensures that string stability and tension remains consistent throughout the most energetic of performances.
Married to the neck is a sumptuous ebony fingerboard, which feels smooth and tactile under the fingers. You'll find 24 jumbo frets that are adorned with alumiloid sharkfin inlays to guide your way to complement the lightning-fast playing feel. The compound radius fingerboard curves more greatly at the nut, flattening out as it reaches the neck joint to make the transition from choppy chord shifts to swept arpeggios as natural and seamless as possible.
Seymour Duncan humbuckers
The Jackson Pro Series King V KV is equipped with a pair of high-output Seymour Duncan humbuckers, which produces an unashamedly overwhelming output. In the neck position you'll find the '59 SH-1N, and a JB TB-4 in the bridge position, a winning combo that deliver searing tones with clarity for tight rhythm riffs and sensational solos. You can rest assured that your fretwork will be translated with the utmost articulation, and most of all, with punishing power.
What could be more satisfying than performing a well-executed divebomb into some harmonic wailing? With that in mind, the Jackson Pro Series King V KVX is equipped with a Floyd Rose FRT-O2000 double-locking tremolo bridge with accompanying locking nut, so that once you're tuned up and locked in, you can dive and wail to your heart's content.
