A co-founder of New York “Big Four” thrash metal institution Anthrax, guitarist Scott Ian has pummeled audiences with his huge sound and formidable chops for close to four decades.
Experience the veritable thrash godfather’s signature tone with the X Series Scott Ian King V™ KVXT, offering a 24.75” scale length, mahogany body, through-body maple neck with graphite reinforcement and scarf joint. The 12”-16” compound radius laurel or rosewood fingerboard features 22 jumbo frets and pearloid block inlays. Its versatile voice is powered by a pair of Duncan Designed™ humbucking pickups— a biting HB-103B humbucking bridge pickup is matched to a powerful HB-103N humbucking neck pickup for articulate tone. This signature axe also features a Jackson compensated and adjustable TOM-style bridge with anchored tailpiece, Jackson die-cast tuners and pointed 6-in-line-headstock.
The KVXT is available in (NEW!) Candy Apple Red with a white pickguard, Gloss Black with a mirror pickguard or Ivory with a white pickguard — all accentuated with chrome hardware, black dome-style single volume and tone controls and a black three-way toggle switch.
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.
