Bursting with fret-burning flamboyance, the King V demands the loyalty of its subjects. With 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.
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.

Awesome Guitar. I love it. I like the Floyd Rose-Licensed JT580 double-locking 2-point tremolo. I also have a Strat. But the Tremolo is different. It's set up different. I was confused at first, because i could not figure out how to change the strings. You have to cut the ball of the string and then put it in the hole and tighten the screw behing it. I also could not figure out how to use the tremolo bar without going out of tune. I found out that you have to put the strings on the guitar and then tighten the nuts up front and don't tune the guitar up front, but at the back of the tremolo bar. I finally got it right, after asking an associate at Guitar Center. Great Guitar. I love the way the Tremolo is set up. You can bend the strings down and up with a wide range. The Strat. you have to ajust it from the back to have a wide range. I did not have to adjust the tremolo at all, even though you can adjust it. Awesome Guitar after you figure everything out. It's like having a Flying V Gibson without the name Gibson. This Jackson Guitar is totally awesome. Now i can switch from the Strat. to the Jackson and still be able to bend the strings which i do a lot. To totally different guitars with the same purpose. Thanks, Jackson.
i have an older model of the jackson king v and from the get go its been an amazing guitar. the best i ever had to be exact. the pick ups were strong but i wanted stronger so i upgraded to emg 85/81. to keep this story short the king v rules all. i highly suggest this guitar to anyone who wants to be taken as a searious shredder. leave the kid stuff alone and join the men.
