OVERVIEW

The regally commanding KVMG Pro Series King V from Jackson features an alder body, 3-piece through-body maple neck with graphite reinforcement and hand-rubbed oil finish, compound-radius (12"-16") ebony fingerboard with 24 jumbo frets and alumiloid shark fin inlays, white neck and headstock binding, direct mount EMG 81 (bridge) and 89 (neck) humbucking pickups with 3-way toggle switching, Floyd Rose bridge, black hardware and Dunlop strap locks.

Crafted with more than three decades of Jackson experience and expertise, Pro Series guitars feature volcanic pickups from pro makers EMG, perfectly sculpted maple necks with hand-rubbed oil finishes, and 24-fret compound-radius fingerboards in rosewood, maple and ebony that curve more dramatically at the nut for easy chording and flatten out approaching the body for wicked-fast runs and crazy-high bends without fretting out. Case sold separately.

An alder body, EMG pickups, Floyd Rose tremolo and an eye-catching design.

Comments about Jackson KVMG Pro V King Electric Guitar:

I've owned Jackson guitars, both Select and Pro series since 1987. I received this as a gift and unfortunately, it was absolutely disappointing. For obvious reasons Fender moved this production line to Indonesia and ruined what was once a very decent line of affordable Jacksons. Where the alder wings join the maple neck a misalignment is so obvious in the black finish even a blind man wouldn't be glad to see it! The neck feels cheap and dried out and the binding has more flaws in it than it's aesthetically worth! I've never been more disturbed by a Jackson at this price level than I am right now. Bypass this and pay a little extra on a used select series with little damage and you'll be much better off!

      Comments about Jackson KVMG Pro V King Electric Guitar:

      This is my First V. Ive been playing strats and single cutaways for nearly 25 yrs and the first thing I noticed about this instrument is its rock hard stability. In the standing position the lower V fin practically anchors the whole instrument to your leg and playing leads is a real pleasure on this. I could not find anything to complain about cosmetically or regarding its construction. Its very well made. I have the snow white and it really looks quite elegant. The neck on it is quite comfortable. The speed neck feels thin, round yet flat. Quite compact in your hand and is not in the way when your running up and down the neck. Compared to the neck on my Esp, this one feels better in that its not as wide feeling. The knobs and switches feel tight and accurate. The tones this guitar produces are quite wonderful. So if you're feeling mellow and don't wanna shred heavy, you can clean it up nice and play some sweet melodies. Also the neck pick up is tapped, so it is a nice bonus as is the strap locks and genuine original floyd rose bridge. It's a very nice guitar package and I am very pleased to have bought it.

      Comments about Jackson KVMG Pro V King Electric Guitar:

      First I should mention that I custom build my own high quality guitars using a reputable vendor. This was my first complete store bought electric guitar. I was very impressed by the finish, it is flawlessly perfect. The neck is very comfortable and plays very fast and effortlessly. The frets were dressed beautifully, and exceeded my expectations. I took a peek inside the tremolo, and control cavities, and both were very clean and well done. All the solder joints look clean and strong. The factory settings, like pickup and bridge height were in the ball park. The intonation was near perfect, and the truss rod adjustment and nut height are perfect. A nice surprise that is not listed in the specs. is that the volume has a push pull pot, and when you pull it up it splits or changes the pickups to parallel wiring, so you get that single coil sound. I like having that option, and I'm glad they incorporated it in the guitar. I love the quality construction of the graphite reinforced maple neck and center with the alder sides for the body. The first quality issue I found was that the middle allen bolt to the middle clamp for the D and G strings on the locking nut was stripped. The bolt was to short and didn't have enough threads on it. I almost packed it back up and sent it back right then and there. I expected more quality in hardware and quality control for what this guitar retails for. Luckily I had a bolt that was just long enough to fix the problem in my spare parts bin. Next, as I was tuning it up the high E string broke right at the string post! I couldn't even get any use out of the string set that came on the guitar. I restrung it with a new and different gauge set of strings that I use. That's when I found and tightened all the string post nuts, because they were all a quarter to half a turn loose. The last issue I found was with the the Floyed Rose high E lock down long allen screw at the back of the tremolo was bent. I removed it and lightly tapped it straight against a flat surface with a hammer. Soft metal leads me to believe this Floyed Rose was made in China. Other than that and with some TLC, I love this guitar, but almost sent it back.

      Comments about Jackson KVMG Pro V King Electric Guitar:

      It's a great guitar, but when I got it, I noticed a mistake in the beautiful ebony fretboard, and found out, it was on all the jackson pro series guitars with ebony fretboard. There are some grey shadows in the fretboard - and it looks pretty filthy. That annoys me a lot. But it's only a cosmetic thing, so it doesn't affect the playing or sound. But it is very annoying that Jackson messed that up.
