Boasting an electrifying offset angular shape and lightning-fast neck, Jackson X Series Kelly™ models exude metal sophistication, while also delivering massive sound and reliable performance at an exceptional value.
The Jackson X Series Kelly KEXM features lightweight and resonant poplar body-wings and a through-body maple neck with graphite reinforcement to guard against climate-induced warping and scarf joint for reduced playing fatigue. Hosting 24 jumbo frets and black sharkfin inlays, the 12”-16” compound radius bound maple fingerboard has a more rounded profile at the nut for natural-feeling chording and riffing and gradually flattens towards the heel for optimal shred articulation and bends.
Ready to roar, the KEXM is also equipped with a pair of volcanic Jackson high-output humbucking pickups that give this metal beast an expansive voice loaded with crunchy, full-bodied tone ideal for brazen lead work or assertive rhythms runs. Command your sound with a three-way pickup toggle switch, single volume and tone controls, and enjoy exceptional dynamic response and reliable tuning stability from the Floyd Rose® Special double-locking tremolo bridge.
Make a bold statement with the X Series Kelly KEXM, available in an extreme Neon Yellow (NEW, AVAILABLE FEBRUARY 2020) or classic Snow White with pointy black headstock and black hardware.
12"-16" Compound Radius Maple Fingerboard
Jackson pioneered the use of the innovative 12"-16" compound radius design, in which the maple 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.
