Model: 2916402555 | X Series
COMING OCTOBER 2017: BLACK WITH A MIRROR PICKGUARD
A co-founder of New York "Big Four" thrash metal institution Anthrax, guitarist Scott Ian has pummeled audiences with his huge sound and formidable chops for close to four decades.
Experience the veritable thrash godfather’s signature tone with the X Series Scott Ian King V™ KVXT, featuring a 24.75" scale, mahogany body, maple neck with neck-thru construction, 12"-16" compound-radius rosewood fingerboard with 22 jumbo frets and pearloid block inlays and white binding around the neck and traditional Jackson 6-in-line headstock.
Its versatile voice is powered by a pair of duo of Duncan Designed™ humbucking pickups— a biting HB-103B humbucking bridge pickup is matched to a powerful HB-103N humbucking neck pickup for articulate tone. This signature axe also features a Jackson® compensated and adjustable TOM-style bridge with anchored tailpiece and Jackson die-cast tuners.
The KVXT is available in Ivory with a white pickguard or Black with a mirror pickguard (NEW)— both accentuated with chrome hardware, black dome style master volume and tone controls and a black three-way toggle switch.
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.
