Overview

Similar to the Marty Friedman Signature Model, this US-made Kelly has the same radical Kelly styling, the same maple neck-thru design, bound ebony fingerboard with sharkfin inlay, and alder body for lighter weight. One difference is that the Jackson KE2 guitar has a Seymour Duncan SH-2 humbucker, in addition to the TB-4, and it has an Floyd Rose Original tremolo. Includes hardshell case ($169 value).

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.

  • US-made maple neck-thru design

    No surprises

    By T Raptor

    from Seattle

    Comments about Jackson KE2 Kelly USA Electric Guitar:

    I got my KE-2 in 2007 the last year of the Cemetary paint scheme. I had always wanted a Jackson and I ended up making payments on this for about a year before it was paid off. When I say "No Surprises" I mean that what you see is what you get. You wont be disappointed by something of low quality you did not expect. The components are high quality from the woods to the original floyd rose trem to the pups and switches. The quality of construction is very good from the fretwork to the paint. Of course the neck through construction is great. The neck profile is flat and wide as one would expect, very typical Jackson profile. The pickups sound good for most types of playing, although the guitar is slanted towards rock obviously...mine with the paint job looking like the cover of an Ozzy album even more so. Some may think it is a bit heavy but only because it is made from a lot of good quality tone wood, it is well balanced for sure. It doesnt bother me to play sitting down, it certainly is not a big issue like a V. The case it comes in is very nice and HUGE, it has to be for the guitar to fit. It is not super delicate but one should take reasonable care to not knock the pointy parts of the guitar and chip paint off. If you think you would really like this guitar or if you have always wanted a Jackson then buy one, chances are you are going to be very happy when you open up the case for the first time to see your new axe.

    Exeptional Instrument

    By Vrozzi

    from Chicago, IL

    Comments about Jackson KE2 Kelly USA Electric Guitar:

    Very fine instrument which you start value from the very first second you feel it in your hands. Very expensive but worth the money paid. I am now happy and proud owner of KE2 Kelly. It'l steal a lot of time of yours to play with your amp and pedals if any. Sound possibilities are endless.

    JACKSON USA KELLY KE-2 KILLS ALL OTHER GUITARS

    By Shadesofcraig

    from New England

    Comments about Jackson KE2 Kelly USA Electric Guitar:

    I have several guitars, Gibson, Fender, BC Rich, Ibanez, and this guitar is by far the coolest looking, best sounding and playing guitar I have. It is comfortable standing or sitting, works for any style, and that Floyd Rose really does stay in tune no matter how much you use it. If you are thinking about getting this guitar and aren't totally sure, let me help you, GET IT, YOU WON"T BE SORRY.

    Great Guitar

    By M. Peter

    from E. Greenwich, Rhode Island

    Comments about Jackson KE2 Kelly USA Electric Guitar:

    This guitar came into my possession 2 years ago. I got it with a custom paint job (lightning sky), ordering it straight from the Jackson factory. This guitar is great. The neck is so easy to play on, and it produces a great rock and metal sound. Don't let that fool you, though, as it is great for any style. I own a Gibson Les Paul Custom, a Gibson Les Paul Standard and a Jackson Dinky along with this guitar, and I would have to say that this guitar is tied for my favorite with the Gibson Les Paul Custom.

    Amazing guitar!

    By Deathrocker416

    from Nevada

    Comments about Jackson KE2 Kelly USA Electric Guitar:

    This guitar can only be described in one word. Amazing! My friend got this same guitar and i was jealous after playing it for the first five minutes. The neck is sooo fast, it's unbelievable. The pickups have so much chug in them they smoke emg's. the floyd rose also has a pretty smooth action to it so no explanation needed there. to shorten it all up, it plays better than it looks and its totally worth the cash.

    Just plain out wicked!

    By Damage 138

    from Albany N.Y.

    Comments about Jackson KE2 Kelly USA Electric Guitar:

    An absoutely amazing guitar. One of the fastest necks I've ever had the pleasure to play. Great tone. And it looks killer. Only thing I wish it had was seperate volume controls for the pickups. Overall my favorite guitar in my arsenal. I can't stress it enough-just get one!

    AWESOME

    By Anonymous

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Jackson KE2 Kelly USA Electric Guitar:

    This guitar is almost perfect. I put in an emg 81 in the bridge and it is just insane. Very faswt neck, neck through really helps reach the upper frets and the Floyd Rose almost NEVER goes out of tune.

    Made for MetalGods

    By Robert J. Garcia

    from pueblo

    Comments about Jackson KE2 Kelly USA Electric Guitar:

    This has to be one of the best made Jackson guitars of our time. I've been playing nothing but thrash metal like Megadeth and Metallica, and this guitar sounds the best to that genre of music. the pickups and whammy are the best i've ever seen. Also,one of the greatest guitarists played this brand of guitar "Marty Friedman". So buy this well constructed guitar made by the MetalGods themselves.
