Jackson

A king with regal bearing!

The Jackson KV2 King V USA Electric Guitar is a lavishly appointed version of the King V. With a Floyd Rose Original double-locking tremolo, alder body ( flamed maple top on transparent finishes), quartersawn maple neck with thru-body design, compound-radius ebony fingerboard with real mother-of-pearl sharkfin inlays, Seymour Duncan SH-4 neck pickup, and a Seymour Duncan TB-4 bridge pickup. Includes deluxe Jackson/SKB molded case.

Jackson's compound-radius fingerboard curves more dramatically at the nut for easy chording and flattens out as it approaches the neck joint for low-action bends without fretting out. With a more relaxed hand, you'll play better!

Check the drop-down menu to the right to select colors and/or other options.

    Comments about Jackson KV2 King V USA Electric Guitar:

    Beautifull yet simple.
    The first thing I did was change out my strings.
    The second thing I did was put in a fat tunsgsten block and noiseless springs, then readjust untill its set up perfectly.
    The third is Duncan custom shop pickups.
    I do these things to all of my guitars.
    Stock I could have played this guitar and be perfectly happy. I'm a little bit of a perfectionist and have to seek out my own unique tone for all of my guitars.
    The stock strings are rather thin and I don't like 9's, I can hardly feel the strings.
    The finish is nice and glossy, however I have a ding and it wasn't a hard hit just a soft bump and it took the black off in that little spot like it was nothing so I'm parnoid as all hell to touch anything with it. The neck is super solid, I back the truss rod off all the way and the didn't move with no strings, some guitars you can flex the neck back and forth but not in the case of this baby, it still feels rock solid. That makes me feel very comfortable with going thicker then stock strings.
    When the guitar showed up the neck was perfectly straight, the action was super low and there was no fret buzz what so ever. With thicker strings and still having no bend to the neck it still plays flawlessly, which I think is a testament to Jackson's quailty. Out of 10 I would have to give it a 9, hands down the best guitar I own. Do yourself a favor, it your have the money and your on the fence about buy it!

      Comments about Jackson KV2 King V USA Electric Guitar:

      If you have the means, treat yourself to one of these guitars. It's just a perfectly crafted instrument. The Duncan humbuckers are better than any active pickup set could dream of being. The neck is so fast and playable it feels effortless. The guitar is surprisingly well balanced and feels good standing or sitting. You really just have to try a USA Jackson - it's difficult to put into words how unbelievably awesome these guitars are. There's nothing even comparable in terms of quality and playability, particularly if you play metal.

      The KING of all V Guitars!

      By Pyro Joe

      from Tulsa, OK

      Comments about Jackson KV2 King V USA Electric Guitar:

      This guitar totally blew my mind the minute I opened it up. After staring at it for a solid 10 minutes, I plugged her in and got a real surprise of tones, and quality of craftsmanship! This guitar's original floyd rose does not go out of tune either, I can whammy away on the tremolo bar and it'll stay in tune no matter what! The pickups are excellent for passive pickups, I will soon switch em out for EMGs because I am more of that type of person, but I have gained new respect for seymour duncan, these pickups are HOT! Overall, a Sweet guitar well worth the price!

      The best guitar EVER!!

      By someguy-gYwk.

      from somewhere

      Comments about Jackson KV2 King V USA Electric Guitar:

      This is the most amazing guitar I have ever played. The neck is fast, the action low, and ZERO fret buzz. The pickups are very versital and the OFR is always in tune, no matter how much it's abused. If it wasn't so expensive, I'd but it. It's woth every cent if you can afford it!

      Great Guitar

      By Rikesh Patel

      from Muscle Shoals, AL

      Comments about Jackson KV2 King V USA Electric Guitar:

      I bought this guitar over the summer. The Floyd Rose tremolo is kickass, the fret board is REALLY smooth to play on and you can get killer speed with this guitar. The Seymour Duncans sound better than EMG 81 and 85 in my opinion. Also, Millie Petrozza and Dave Mustaine have used these guitars in the past on tour and records. This guitar is made for just about everything from jazz all the way up to speed/thrash metal.

      KING V 2

      By Anonymous

      from Undisclosed

      Comments about Jackson KV2 King V USA Electric Guitar:

      I love my guitar. I gave it a 4 in terms of features, due to a bad choice of installing the tremolo system. The floyd rose with the insert blocks is the cheapest and a very unreliable tremolo system ever! You break strings, you break an insert block, and what do you do, you salvage your strings, or change them, or purchase a new block if you lose it or break it. How bout NO insert blocks? The 'fast load tremolo' is a great choice for this guitar and must definitely be considered by dudes in Jackson-guitars. Killer tone, thanks to the seymour duncan pickups. Great wood quality. And of course a very outstanding design flying V. Jackson makes the prettiest flying V, and I'm sure everyone agrees. As far as strings, they should really use higher gauge strings. This guitar can take it fore sure, absolutely. I'd suggest something around 11-52. Altho I'm using a 11-70 set and I gotta tell ya, I went thru a lot of filing to get that thing in that hole. This machine is a tank. It reaches into the back of your throat and pulls out your writhing skeleton. This is metal crafted with little remorse for the eardrums and souls of its people.

      Awesome!!!!!!!

      By Ishmael

      from Spring

      Comments about Jackson KV2 King V USA Electric Guitar:

      I played this guitar at the local guitar store. This blew away any guitar that I had ever played. Jackson uses the best stuff for everything on this guitar. It has low action so it plays FAST! Whenever I go there, I abuse the original floyd rose. Every time I come back, It's still in tune. It has a neck-thru design which provides incredible sustain. The seymor duncans make it sound brutal. I am planning on buying one of these in the near future.

      Comments about Jackson KV2 King V USA Electric Guitar:

      My local music store had one of these in stock and I absolutely had to try it. It was the blue ghost flames one, and the picture does not do this guitar justice. This guitar was one of the best guitars I've ever played! No matter how much I abused the floyd, it just wouldn't go out of tune. I'm planning on ordering the one in black ghost flames. I just wish it wasn't so expensive!

      Amazing guitar

      By NSV

      from Newport Beach, CA

      Comments about Jackson KV2 King V USA Electric Guitar:

      The KV2 is an amazing guitar in EVERY respect.Floyd of course NEVER drops out of tune, no matter how many dive-bombs..It is a beautiful guitar to look at, but it plays even better than it looks, which is seemingly impossible because its so hot! SUPER LOW action, action so low and buttery smooth with NO fret buzz...absolutely phenomenal.Buy this guitar, it is worth every penny and more.

      A metal guitar players dream!

      By kooncrap-53sFB

      from Chicago

      Comments about Jackson KV2 King V USA Electric Guitar:

      I have played other Jacksons before including Rhoads. The tone is (BRUTAL!). Plays very fast. It takes some time to get used to especially when sitting but it's worth it. I normally play Les Pauls so needless to say this took some time to get used to. The price is a tad bit high but if your serious about playing thrash then this is your guitar. Clean tone is not bad either. The only thing I would change is to Duncan Blackouts, asside from that I love this AX!
