Trivium carries the metalcore torch high, making their guitarist Corey Beaulieu a natural choice for a signature guitar. Teaming up with Jackson to modify the King V to meet his exact specifications, they created a guitar that sounds as vicious as it looks.
The USA Signature Corey Beaulieu King V™ KV7 features an alder body (AAA flame top on trans finish model), bound through-body quartersawn maple neck, 12"-16" compound-radius ebony fingerboard with old-school sharkfin inlays, covered Seymour Duncan® Blackout pickups with three-way toggle switching, single volume control, original Floyd Rose® seven-string tremolo, and Jackson tuners.
Seymour Duncan® Blackouts AHB-1s 7
These 7-string Blackouts deliver crushingly tight highs and thick-low end crunch. The neck pickup’s balanced preamp and coil geometry reveal both warmth and single note clarity right down to the B string. Chords sound warm and full; leads run rich with organic sustain. The bridge pickup outputs a searing onslaught of distortion. Power-chorded riffs remain tight and responsive whether in standard B or even with drop-A tunings. Highs are crisp and call out for swift arpeggios and tapped passages.
