Overview

Sonic Mayhem With a Shredded Price Tag

Wielding your very own Dean Kerry King V just got easier. This Black Satin electric celebrates King’s position as one of the most revered thrash metal guitarists, his four decades of Slayer and his brutal riffs that are still banging heads today. Aggressive yet stylish, this Kerry King Dean makes a statement before it ever plays a note with a horned headstock mirroring the V-shaped mahogany body and bright red crossed nail inlays on the ebony fretboard. Now you don’t have to drop big bucks to snag this slick signature shred machine from Musician’s Friend. This version brings the cost down drastically, putting it well within reach of anyone who knows just what to do with the sizzling EMG humbucking pickups lurking inside. Plus, with its Kahler Hybrid Tremolo system, no solo is safe from whammy attacks, dive bombs and harmonic bends with demonic attitude.

Raise the Horns


 The Signature Kerry King Dean doesn’t just let the tone do the talking. With horned tips on the mahogany body and the headstock, this axe is hell-bent on making sure everyone knows what kind of guitarist you are. Red crossed nail inlays add some color to the ebony fretboard, showing off a hint of character underneath its stoic exterior.

Active EMG Pickups


 The Kerry King V allows you to traverse the complete sonic hellscape with an EMG 85 neck pickup that delivers everything from clean highs down to crunchy distorted thrash. For a little extra push of power, the EMG 81 bridge pickup includes a PA2 Preamp Booster that will take your solos to new heights or crank an amp into overdrive for face-melting fuzz.

Expressive Tremolo System

The Kahler Hybrid Tremolo system lets you shine a light in the darkness with delicate vibrato and emotive bends. Built to withstand aggressive, energetic playing styles like King’s, this Kahler trem will help put the final touches on your next Slayer inspired masterpiece.

If you’ve been waiting for an affordable version of the Kerry King Signature Dean, this is your chance. Aside from the manageable price tag, this V-style electric guitar also features a Floyd Rose R2 nut and Grover tuners with black hardware for tuning stability.
