Model: 291603 | X Series
The KEXMG Kelly™ features a basswood body (quilt maple top on trans finishes), three-piece through-body maple neck, compound-radius (12”-16”) bound rosewood fingerboard with 24 jumbo frets and classic Jackson shark fin inlays, EMG® 81 (bridge) and 85 (neck) pickups, and a Floyd Rose® Special bridge. Available in four new finishes for 2014 - Gloss Black, Silverburst, Tobacco Burst, and White with Black Bevels.
Jackson X series models feature a selection of EMG® and Duncan Designed™ humbucking pickups for unparalleled tonal versatility from clean to heavily distorted. All tremolo-equipped models feature Floyd Rose® Special bridges.
True neck-through-body construction has been a Jackson hallmark since 1980. For greater playability and sustain, X Series models feature a neck-through design usually reserved for much more expensive instruments. Further, graphite support rods flanking the truss rod provide even more neck stability to help the instrument withstand the rigors of the road.
X Series models feature compound-radius fingerboards. Jackson pioneered the use of this innovative design, in which the fingerboard gradually flattens toward the heel from its more rounded profile at the nut. This makes for comfortable and natural-feeling chording and riffing near the nut, with optimal shred articulation and bending nearer the heel.
The X Series presents a wealth of distinctive Jackson stylistic options from the subdued to the striking. Sharkfin or “piranha” fingerboard inlays. The traditional Jackson six-in-line headstock or an AT headstock with tuners on either side. Deep solid colors or beautifully figured tops. The X Series has something for everyone.
