USA Signature Scott Ian King V™ KVT, Rosewood Fingerboard, Ivory

$4,299.99 MSRP

In a career spanning four decades, veritable thrash godfather Scott Ian has pummeled audiences with his huge sound and formidable chops.

The USA Signature Scott Ian King V™ KVT features a mahogany body through-body maple neck, 24.75” scale, 12”-16” compound-radius rosewood fingerboard with 22 jumbo frets and pearl block inlays, ivoroid neck and headstock binding and traditional Jackson 6-in-line headstock.

This signature King V’s commanding and distinctive voice is driven by a pair of modern Seymour Duncan® pickups—a crisp JB™ SH-4 humbucking bridge pickup and warm ‘59™ SH1N humbucking neck pickup that combine for highly balanced, flexible tone, with plenty of high output for immaculate cleans and raw, raunchy distortion.

Equipped with a TonePros® adjustable TOM-style bridge with Gotoh® stop tailpiece and tuners, the Scott Ian KVT is available in an Ivory finish with a white pickguard, set off by chrome hardware.

Direct Mount Seymour Duncan® JB™ TB4 / '59™ SH1N Humbucking Pickups

It doesn’t get more classic than the JB / ’59 pickup combination. The incredibly popular JB pickup brings big, heavy sound, sustain and rich harmonics, while the ’59 offers sweet sounds and clarity. Put these two together to create the ultimate in versatility, capable of handling a wide spectrum of genres from country to blues to punk to metal.

24.75" Scale Length

A 24.75" scale length offers less string tension to reach the concert pitch of a 25.5" scale, therefore loosening the feel of the guitar to make bending and vibrato more fluid.
