Model: 2914402 | Pro Series
Command the stage with the Jackson Pro King V KVMG—an active guitar with commanding sound that demands respect and razor-sharp sound that cuts through a dense mix with ease. The king of high performance guitar design, Jackson has sat on the throne for over 30 years, designing instruments that exceed the requirements and expectations of modern metal players.
Speaking with a sonorous voice powered by a pair of EMG® active humbucking pickups—an 81 bridge pickup and 85 neck pickup mounted directly to the body for increased vibration transfer—this high-octane instrument delivers powerful punch while retaining clarity for enhanced note definition, critical in modern metal that’s fueled by complex chord work. Add expression to your playing with the robust Floyd Rose® FRT-O2000 recessed double-locking tremolo that combines with the Floyd Rose R3 locking nut for stalwart performance, refusing to go out of tune no matter how deep you dip it. The neck-through-body ultra-fast one-piece maple neck 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. Elegant gold hardware against the satin black finish creates a feast for the eyes, while the alumiloid shark fin inlays, single-ply neck binding and pointed 6-In-Line headstock with scarf joint leave absolutely no doubt as to this instrument’s lineage. Plug in a Pro King V KVMG and stake your claim the throne of state-of-the-art guitar playing.
Jackson Pro series instruments are exactly that—pro-level guitars for pro-level players. Neck-through-body models feature hand-rubbed oil neck finishes and graphite neck reinforcement rods for the ultimate in sleek playability and rock-solid sustain and stability. Bolt-on-neck models feature an innovative “wrap-around” three-bolt neck joint with remarkable strength, style and feel.
Jackson Pro series guitars are built with the very best parts for pro tone, stability and durability for stage and studio alike. Nowhere is this more evident than the bridge. Pro series guitars feature Floyd Rose® 1000 Series tremolos, Jackson Hi-Mass hard-tail and string-through bridges.
Pro 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.
Pro series models present Jackson players with an alluring assortment of stylistic features and options. These include ebony, maple and rosewood fingerboards; sharkfin, offset-dot and “piranha” fingerboard inlays; deep solid colors and beautifully figured tops; and, of course, the classic Jackson six-in-line headstock.
