The Jackson Pro Series King V KV Electric Guitar combines breath-taking beauty with unbridled power. Since its introduction, the King V has turned heads thanks to its commanding stage presence, and ferocious no-holds-barred output. If you're looking for a guitar that produces a thunderous energy, and carries itself with an air of elegance, then the natural finish with gold hardware is the perfect choice.
Sublime V-shape body
The King V is shaped to the instantly recognisable V-shape body, an unapologetically cool design that is designed to be played fast and fearlessly. Strutting around on stage is a given thanks to the easy manoeuvrability of the shape, which is both lightweight and well-balanced. The body is built using mahogany, a durable and warm sounding tonewood that produces a rampant energy. The satin finish prevents unwanted stickiness or tackiness from impeding your movement during performances.
The single-piece through-body construction puts ultra-fast playability is your hands, allowing you to cruise through riffs at lightning speed. The generous 25.5-inch scale length establishes enduring sustain, whilst preserving string tension for a consistent feel throughout the most demanding of sets. A pair of graphite rods provide reinforcement against unwanted twisting or warping due to humidity or temperature changes. You can rest assured that wherever your tour schedule takes you, your King V KV is ready and willing to perform.
Married to the neck is a heavenly ebony fingerboard, which provides a luxurious feeling under the fingertips. There are 24 jumbo frets to roam around, with unique pearloid Shark Eye block position inlays to guide you. The 12- to 16-inch compound radius 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-O3000 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.
