Jackson KVMG Pro Series King V
The KVMG Pro Series King V is part of the new Pro Series models from Jackson, with shred friendly features in a killer V shape.
Just like the other Pro Series guitars, this one is metal worthy, combining edgy aesthetics with the typical metal setup - EMG pickups and Floyd Rose.
This guitar starts of as a piece of alder shaped into Jackson's unique King V shape. The top features a maple veneer and the body is covered gloss finish.
You can pick between traditional black finish or the great looking "Snow White with Black Bevels" finish.
The KVMG Pro Series King V comes with a 3-piece through-body maple neck. To handle daily abuse from shred practice and from coordinated live performance stage antics, the neck comes with graphite reinforcement. Playability is provided by its 12"-16" compound radius shape and is improved by its slick hand-rubbed oil finish. The 25.5" scale length neck has an ebony fingerboard that sports 24 jumbo frets and alumiloid shark fin inlays. For a sharper look, the neck and the headstock both feature white binding.
No matter how great looking a guitar is, it won't be useful in metal and rock if it can't provide the powerful sound that it requires. Jackson meets this need head on by going with EMG pickups which many metal fans swear by. The neck is an EMG 85, while the bridge sports an EMG 81 which is controlled by a 3-way toggle switch. A master volume and master tone knob is also provide for simple tone shaping options.
Rounding off the features is a Recessed Floyd Rose FRT-O2000 Double-Locking Tremolo, Floyd Rose R3 String Nut and Jackson Die-Cast tuning machines. All the features blend well together, resulting in a great looking instrument that is expected to perform well for metal and rock players.
The other new Pro Series guitars to watch out for are the DK2M Pro Series Dinky, DK2MQ Pro Series Dinky, SL2 Pro Series Soloist, SL2Q Pro Series Soloist, RRMG Pro Series Rhoads.
The Jackson KVMG Pro Series King V is currently retailing for around £ 639.00. You can visit Jackson Guitars for more information.
