Overview

The B.C. Rich Metal Master Kerry King V features a maple, bolt-on neck; solid, beveled basswood body; widow style headstock; a rosewood fretboard with white pearloid dot lnlays and 24 jumbo frets; a wrap around fixed bridge; and 2 BDSM humbuckers.

Bolt-on Construction
The Metal Master Kerry King V uses a classic Bolt-on construction. The maple neck is bolted on with 4 screws to the body. This construction offers some added flexibility in the instruments adjustment and provides the option to change the neck in the future.

B.C. Rich BDSM Pickups
B.C. Rich designed their BDSM humbucking pickups to provide a solid sound and to be durable while delivering high output. BDSM stands for Broad Dynamic Sonically Matched. That simply means the pickup is designed to reproduce a wide range of frequencies accurately (broad dynamic). Then they are tested and matched in pairs (neck and bridge) by their inherent individual and signature tonal and output characteristics to give a solidly balanced tone (sonically matched).

Beveled Top
The Metal Master Kerry King V employs a beveled edge around the shape. In many ways, bevels on a top are similar to facets on a cut stone. They catch the light and reflect at different angles giving the instrument more of a three dimensional look.

Case sold separately.

Mixed Feelings....

By InZane4all

from Los Angeles, CA

Comments about B.C. Rich Metal Master Kerry King V Electric Guitar:

I had this guitar for 2 weeks and I loved the design. It makes it look so aggresive. Unfortunately, that's the only good thing I can say about this axe..... I had problems with the guitar since day one: Frets buzzed like crazy and the head stock was up straight (supposed to be at an angle). I took it back to Guitar Center and was told that once they adjusted the neck and the strings were swapped out, that the buzzing would go away. Nope...... So wrong.... I took the guitar back a total of 3 times, and it wasn't until I complained that I was told the guitar was defective (screws holding the neck were over-torqued, causing it to lose tuning). I strongly believe the sales people knew it was defective and still sold it to me (aren't they supposed to check everything works before they sell it?) Sure, I am partly to blame for not checking the guitar myself, but still.... It was assumed it was new and working.

Love this axe

By Classic Metalhead

from Jackson, MI

Comments about B.C. Rich Metal Master Kerry King V Electric Guitar:

I bought this guitar almost two years ago, used, and I'm glad I picked it up. Its size takes a bit getting used to, but once you do, this guitar turns into a thrash and shred monster. The stock pickups are good for the price, it has decent sustain (not Les Paul-ish, but I bought it because I love the V-style body), and the action feels good... at least to an amateur like me. This was the first guitar I purchased for myself and I won't hesitate to recommend it to someone who wants a good value on a guitar.

An Axe To Sell Your Soul For

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about B.C. Rich Metal Master Kerry King V Electric Guitar:

I played this once at a Guitar World. Fortunately, it was tuned to drop B, so I could test its sound for some REALLY heavy metal(Slipknot). All I can say is, if I was Kerry King, I would TOTALLY approve this death-metal axe. Its got a great feel to it and its sound is sort of muffled, which gives it an awesome kick. The only problem is, believe it or not, its shape. Because of the V shape, you can't rest the sides on your leg and must stand while playing it. Otherwise, one of the best guitars on the market!!!

Awesome

By Mike

from Farifax, VA

Comments about B.C. Rich Metal Master Kerry King V Electric Guitar:

This is a great guitar. Nice widow headstock. It plays great too, it's comfortable to play standing or sitting(if you get it in the right position). I would highly recommend this guitar to someone at the intermediate level, looking for a good guitar without having to pay loads of money. Another great thing about this is you don't have to deal with the floyd rose bridge which can be a pain. My only complaint is the neck is long so you have to get a case big enough for it, not just any case, like a bass guitar case or a gibson flying v case. AND you should change the strings once you get it, trust me, you'll be able to hold notes out longer with better strings. Otherwise, great guitar.

Comments about B.C. Rich Metal Master Kerry King V Electric Guitar:

I owned this guitar and i found out you get what you pay for-it looks great but the body's large and the neck was to round for my liking the gitar as a whole is less than impressive hopfully the upscale models are much much better

Great V!!!!

By JP

from A place

Comments about B.C. Rich Metal Master Kerry King V Electric Guitar:

First off the guitar just looks great with the widow headstock that looks like it could go right through someone. The body of the V is great the tribal graphic pop right off the black background. The guitar also sounds amazing, sounds great clean and distorted, of course if you getting a kerry king you probably want it distorted. Just plug it in to a good processor or pedal and it sounds awesome. I personally use the BOSS metal master pedal The V doesn't have the little rubber thing on the outside so you kinda have to play it standing to be comfortable. The strings wore kinda quick also so get some good replacements. Other than that the guitar looks and sounds awesome!!

GET THIS AXE!!!

By zombie62190

from Streamwood, IL

Comments about B.C. Rich Metal Master Kerry King V Electric Guitar:

I bought this guitar USED, from a local guitar shop. From the first time a saw it, I knew that I had to have it. I am a HUGE Slayer fan, and this guitar caught my eye immediately. I just upgraded my neck pickup to a DiMarzio, but even the stock BDSMs scream! I was amazed by the tone I got out of them. The maple neck is SOOOOOO nice. I love it. It has great action and feel. The sustain isn't great but hey, it's not a very expensive axe. The one I got had a lot of scratches and dents, but let me remind you IT WAS USED. And I'm not one to gripe about cosmetics so I really don't care. The graphics are okay. At first I liked 'em but after a while I got tired of the tribal design. But that's just my personal opinion. And this guitar is awesomely balanced. There's nothing I hate more than a neck heavy guitar. It sits perfectly, and is way lighter than it looks.If you're a beginner/intermediate guitar player, you play metal, or you love Slayer you should DEFINITELY buy this guitar. You can't beat the price, or the quality. I've NEVER played a better quality guitar for this price.
