Model: 291442 | Pro Series
Jackson’s Pro King V™ KVQ takes the regal King V design to even more majestic heights, with a beautiful quilt maple top and Trans Amber gloss finish. Its three-piece maple through-body neck has an ultra-smooth oiled back finish and rock-solid graphite reinforcement, while the compound-radius (12”-16”) bound ebony fingerboard has 24 jumbo frets and alumiloid sharkfin inlays. The King’s commanding voice comes from direct-mount Seymour Duncan® Distortion humbucking pickups, with other features including three-way toggle pickup switching, Floyd Rose® 1000 Series double-locking tremolo, and black nickel hardware.
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.
