Shaped like a bolt from darkened skies and sounding even hotter!
The JS32 Kelly Electric Guitar features an alder body, rock maple neck, and a 24-fret compound-radius rosewood fingerboard, two high-output Jackson CVR2 humbucking pickups, and a Floyd Rose-Licensed JT580 double-locking 2-point tremolo. Comes with gig bag.
Compound Radius Fingerboard
A feature unique to Jackson that lets you shred like no other. It is rounder near the nut – perfect for fingering crushing chords and deadly riffs. Then, as you climb the neck, the fingerboard flattens out, making it perfect for effortless warp-speed shredding and the widest string bends known to man.
24 Jumbo Frets
The 24 jumbo frets are superbly finished and easily accessible on all models. When combined with Jackson's compound radius fingerboard, this feature ensures effortless string bending and super-fast shredding all the way up to the 24th fret.
Distinctive Shark Fin Inlays
Undeniable, unmistakable, and 100% Jackson. This instantly recognizable feature makes our guitars stand out from the crowd. Jackson guitars not only play better – they look better, too.
High-Output, Custom-Voiced Covered Jackson Pickups
Painstakingly voiced for full, rich tone while providing maximum overdrive and sustain. These bad boys also clean up nicely when rolled back, which isn't always true of high-output pickups.
High-Quality Jackson Gig Bag
Cover your axe. Besides protecting your new JS, the gig bag lets you carry it with ease, confident that it won't get dinged.

played kelly for a few years now. still the best bang for the buck.the thinnest neck,and fastest ive ever gotten hold of.
this guitar is awesome im really into kelly's because im a marty friedman fan. i really dig this especially because it has floyd, from what ive seen this looks like a marvelous guitar anyone would be happy to own
This is a really good guitar for the price.The compound radius neck makes the neck really fast for shredding but still comfortable for holding chords.The sharkfin inlays really set the guitar off.The stock pickups actually sound decent in this guitar but I would upgrade to a set of Seymour Duncan's. The only downfall depends on your taste.The Floyd Rose tremolo isn't liked by alot of musicians but usually because they dont know how to properly tune and set it up.The biggest tip is to adjust the springs and adjust the bridge so its level with the body. I personally like a floyd rose and they stay in tune well but, if you dont i recommend a guitar with a string thru body bridge. THIS GUITAR HAS PASSIVE PICKUPS SO THERE IS NO BATTERY NEEDED.THEY ARE COVERED PASSIVE PICKUPS SO THEY LOOK LIKE ACTIVES BUT THEY ARENT.
the other review lists all great things about it except things that relate to one thing: the floyd rose! all of the problems previously stated in the other review (aside from wood type) are the common things to expect from a floyd. if you are willing to meet the maintainance requirements of a floyd then this guitar is great! the battery is needed for ACTIVE PICKUPS, which are great! and also its NOT expensive! very low price for guitars like it
The Jackson JS32 (w/Floyd Rose) has 24 frets which is great. The Floyd Rose is there for all the dive bomb needs, vibrato urges, and insane sound effects. The pickups are high output for maximum metal tone they dive for. However, although the pickups are great they need batteries in order to get the entire guitar functional. Also, the body is made out of Alder, which means the body will muffle some of the tone out. Third, the locking nut works great but you need to unscrew it for retuning, making retuning almost a pain in the neck (it would be great if there's a locking nut that you only need to toggle the switch or something). Lastly, for a guitar that doesn't work at full power, the guitar is completely overpriced. Go for the Epiphone EM-2 Prophecy Custom FX with Floyd Rose.
