Form follows function in the Jackson Pro King V KV, a guitar designed for giant, crushing tone with head-banging, flamboyant style. When you step out on stage with a King V over your shoulders, there’s no doubt you’re on a mission to destroy with your music. The king of high performance guitar design, Jackson’s been designing instruments that exceed the requirements and expectations of modern metal players for over 30 years.
With a commanding sound powered by a pair of brawny Seymour Duncan SH-6 humbucking pickups, this brutally powerful instrument delivers powerful punch while retaining clarity with enhanced note definition, a critical component for modern metal. The Floyd Rose FRT-O5000 double-locking tremolo bridge will soar and dive without sacrificing your tuning while providing laser-accurate intonation along the length of the neck.
The ultra-fast one-piece maple neck with a classic Jackson profile designed for speed bears a pair of graphite rods for reinforcement against the assaults of temperature and humidity, remaining true for unbeatable performance. The 12”-16” compound radius fingerboard is designed for highly technical lightspeed playing—more curved by the nut for comfortable chording, it flattens out as you move up the speedy neck for increasingly fast playing speed and wide bends without fretting out.
With one look at this guitar the audience knows you’re serious about playing the best—there’s no mistaking the distinctive style of a Jackson. An elegant white binding on the fingerboard and matching painted headstock creates a feast for the eyes, while the 6-In-Line headstock with scarf joint leave absolutely no doubt as to this instrument’s lineage. Plug in a Pro King V KV and stake your claim for the throne of state-of-the-art guitar playing. Case sold separately.
