Overview

The 2008 Jackson KVX10 King V is an electric guitar built with a high-quality alder body and a pair of Duncan Design humbucker pickups. The HB103 is a high-output ceramic bridge humbucker based on the Duncan Distortion. The HB102N is a hot Alnico neck pickup based on the Duncan Jazz. King V features a licensed Floyd Rose Low Profile tremolo, 24 jumbo frets, a bolt-on rock maple neck with a rosewood fingerboard, and chrome hardware. Controls include master volume, master tone, and 3-way pickup switch.

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!

These are really great guitars. The neck feels really thin and comfortable for those high speed lead licks. The big frets make playing feel like a dream. The metal controls give you a really firm feel when making adustments to your sound. I play through a Marshall 800 head with 1960A cabinet. This axe just screams with this setup. The setup on mine was perfect from the factory and the guitar stays in tune really well. The only complaint would be that the guitar is just a little bit neck heavy.

I played this guitar at the store a few weeks ago and was really let down. First, the "Seymour Designed" pickups were crap (I may have thought this because I had just been playing an ESP Eclipse, but these pickups were still terrible). The other main problem is where the input jack is. If you ever play sitting down, then you will have to get used to a chord jabbing into your leg, because the input jack is in the perfect place to be incredibly uncomfortable. However, if you play standing up then you are screwed because the guitar is so unbalanced that whenever you stand up the neck falls to the ground.It played really well though, with a pretty fast neck, but that didn't make up for the other problems at all.Overall a guitar that had potential, but Jackson managed to screw it up.

The Best Axe I ever picked up

Comments about Jackson KVX10 King V Electric Guitar (2008 Model):

This guitar is far the smoothest I have ever picked up. The sound of it is incredible, I remember when I first bought it I could not put it down until my hands were way too tired. My fingers were calloused and I do not regret getting this guitar. It was the best money I ever spent.

It's Amazing....

By jamS1CSjq

Comments about Jackson KVX10 King V Electric Guitar (2008 Model):

Wow, I am just blown away by this guitar because it's so amazing. It may seem a bit pricy (for some people) but its great its durable, it looks great, the neck is thin and smooth so its great for shredding or fast chord progressions, the only setbacks are the stock pickups. If you're going to play live with this then change the pickups asap but if you just want to practice the pickups will do. If you do change the pickups then you will have a guitar you will never get rid of. Great guitar I highly recommend it.

IT'S AMAZING

By Andrew Mercer

Comments about Jackson KVX10 King V Electric Guitar (2008 Model):

It has a wicked sound for heavy metal, punk, thrash, and hardrock, so if your planning to play for grandma this guitar well blow her mind. Really the only bad things are is that it's really hard to play sitting down and that if you drop it your screwed.

Long live the KING!

Comments about Jackson KVX10 King V Electric Guitar (2008 Model):

I've had this guitar for about a year now, but I will never forget the first day I had it. I played until my already heavily calloused fingers from being a bass player for 4 years were raw. This thing is the smoothest and fastest playing guitar I have ever had the honor of playing. The trem is great. It Stays in tune extremely well. The pickups leave a little to be desired, the key word being little. Also, it just looks sweet. When you whip this thing out and start shredding, people know you mean business The only complaint that I would have is the input jack is in a rather inconvenient spot but I just picked up a right angle cord and problem solved. Over-all...awesome.

Amazing guitar

Comments about Jackson KVX10 King V Electric Guitar (2008 Model):

Ive been playing for a little over a year now, and this was My first guitar. I absolutley love it, the neck is just fantastic for playing fast heavy riffs and the floyde rose is just plain fun. Anyways, the only complaint i have is the pickups are not as nice as they should be, i replaced them with some dimarzio evos DP158 DP159 and the guitar freakin screams, i play from a spyder 3 line 6 amp and this guitar sounds absolutly beautiful. amazing harmonics and sustain i would play this guitar over a gibson, dean, esp or any kind of other V anyday

Jackson KVX10

Comments about Jackson KVX10 King V Electric Guitar (2008 Model):

I love this guitar! I have been playing for 2 years now. I started on a strat copy, moved my way up to a Epiphone Les Paul 100, which i also love, and just bought this guitar. I've only had it for one day and i love it already. The Floyd Rose never comes out of tune with extended wammy bar useage, unless they are new strings. I've never used a floating bridge assembly before, but i'm familiarizing myself with it now. It's a little hard to get into tune, but it's worth it. My only complaint is that it did NOT come with instructions; instead i got 2 allen wrenches and a socket. not bad, the internet is there for a reason. This is a great by for the money! even thought it's made in Japan and the pickups are made in Korea, it shreds like a beast!!! the neck is nice and fast, great for metal, etc, but i also enjoy the neck pickup for more clean tones etc. awesome axe!!! must have!!!!!

Fricken Love it

Comments about Jackson KVX10 King V Electric Guitar (2008 Model):

This V is the best one ive ever heard. The neck is perfectly small and fast, the pickups scream like no other, the floyd rose tremelo system is insane. The only problem i've found is that the paint scratches easily. Other than that this guitar is way better than the gibson V by far.

soooolid

By Mustaine'sPadawan

Comments about Jackson KVX10 King V Electric Guitar (2008 Model):

Got it recently and I am very happy with this guitar. Great bang for the buck. I can play it very comfortably sitting down, just get a cable that ends with an L on one side. Anyway the neck is damn fast and a very comfortable shape. The jumbo frets play like a charm, pickups are okay but I will probably get some actives, either Mustaine's Duncan or the classic 81/85 EMG. No problems with the LFR. The only thing that really bugs me is that the guitar is neck heavy but im getting used to that. This guitar is damn sexy. Quite possibly the best looking guitar ever made. I am proud to own one.
