The king of high-performance guitars, Jackson’s been designing instruments that exceed the requirements and expectations of modern metal players for more than three decades now. And with the Pro KV, Jackson takes the regal King VTM to even more majestic heights.
This is a guitar created for giant, crushing tone with a head-banging, flamboyant style! The Jackson Pro Series King V KV offers premium features, including a beveled satin finish mahogany body and an ultra-fast one-piece maple neck with a scarf joint and pair of graphite rods for reinforcement against the assaults of temperature and humidity. The 12"-16" compound radius ebony fingerboard hosts 24 jumbo frets, shark eye block inlays, and is designed for highly technical lightspeed playing. There is more curve by the nut for comfortable chording and it flattens out as you move up the speedy neck for increasingly fast playing speed and wide bends without fretting out.
With a commanding sound powered by brawny Seymour Duncan® JB/'59 humbucking pickups, this brutally powerful instrument delivers powerful punch while retaining clarity with enhanced note definition, a critical component for modern metal. The recessed Floyd Rose® FRT-O2000 double-locking tremolo bridge system will soar and dive without sacrificing your tuning, while providing laser-accurate intonation along the length of the neck.
One look at this guitar and the audience will know you’re serious about playing the best - there’s no mistaking the distinctive style of a Jackson! Vibrant gold hardware and elegant binding on the fingerboard and traditional Jackson 6-in-line matching headstock create a feast for the eyes, leaving absolutely no doubt as to this instrument’s lineage. Plug in a Jackson Pro Series King V KV and stake your claim on the throne of state-of-the-art guitar playing!
