Pro Series King V™ KV Two-Face, Ebony Fingerboard, Black and White
The king of high-performance guitars, Jackson® has been designing instruments that exceed the requirements and expectations of modern metal players for forty years now. And with the all-new Pro Series King V™ KV Two-Face, Jackson takes the regal King V to even more majestic heights.
Boasting head-banging, flamboyant style, the Pro KV Two-Face sports a half Black, half White finish with Jackson’s famed pointed 6-in-line matching black and white headstock and black hardware.
A feast for the eyes, the Pro KV is also loaded with premium features including a mahogany body with bevels and an ultra-fast maple neck with scarf joint and pair of graphite rods for reinforcement against the assaults of temperature and humidity. Hosting 24 jumbo frets and pearloid sharkfin inlays, the 12”-16” compound radius bound ebony 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 a commanding sound fueled by a brawny set of Seymour Duncan® Distortion humbucking pickups, this brutally authoritative instrument delivers maximum punch while retaining clarity with enhanced note definition, a critical component for modern metal. The Floyd Rose® 1000 Series double-locking tremolo system will soar and dive without sacrificing your tuning, while providing laser-accurate intonation along the length of the neck.
THROUGH-BODY MAPLE NECK WITH GRAPHITE REINFORCEMENT AND SCARF JOINT
Extending the piece of wood used for the neck through the entire length of the guitar’s body allows for greater playability and sustain across the whole instrument. Graphite-reinforcement rods flanking the truss rod provide even more neck stability to help the instrument withstand the rigors of the road, while scarf joint for an angled back headstock increases the tension behind the nut that eliminates the need for string trees and/or string retainer bars.

SEYMOUR DUNCAN® DISTORTION TB-6 (BRIDGE) AND SEYMOUR DUNCAN® DISTORTION SH-6N (NECK) PICKUPS
The powerful TB-6 trembucker was built for the most aggressive of styles—punk, gothic, thrash, hard rock and heavy metal. Ideal for dropped tunings, this high-output pickup delivers punch and raw, distorted rock sounds. The Distortion SH-6 neck pickup is perfect for driving - or overdriving - your amp's input, yielding a ton of crunch while maintaining clarity.
