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!

Amazing guitar

By Jay

from kuna

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

You can't really ask for more... for the price

By Altitudes911

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

I've been looking for a good 24 frets guitar for a while and this model is the best Ive found for the cheapest price. The JS serie is just too cheap and lame to play. The floyd rose bridge of this guitar works perfectly, but the pickups need to be changed for a better sound. I put a DiMarzio X2N in the bridge and my guitar roars like a beast now. The neck is also very comfortable to play. The only problem is that you can't play this guitar seated, or your cable connector will pinch your leg... but who would want to play a V seated..

Buy it now and be amazed!

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

This is the greatest guitar that i have ever played, its smooth, fast, i am in a band, and plan on buying this beuty in a different model, but it still has the same feel as this magestic guitar! Dragonforce's guitar player Sam Totman plays a model of this guitar, and he is by far my favorite guitarest, herman li is also amasing, but hes playes an "Ibanez RG"

entry level for the extreme

By CHASROCK

from Baton Rouge, La.

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

I got an older model x-series, before they put the tremolo on them, but mines got the fin inlays and duncan designed pickups. First of all its a very comfortable guitar. I love the way my forearm rests on the fin when I'm playing. This has made me want to upgrade to a better V-guitar. If your looking for a great guitar and you've got a good bit of money, don't waste it on this guitar. The pickups aren't too good (I heard better on a $50 Lyon, Scott Ian model). Also its got a bolt on neck so you dont get much sustain, but what do you expect for $400. I bought this guitar because I didn't have much money to spend. I think I got a good deal, but I still want a better guitar. I'm switching the bridge pickup with an authentic duncan distortion later this week, hopefully that will make a big difference. The neck pickup is actually pretty good, but I don't use it too much.

Jesus Christ

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

The King V is so far the best guitar i have ever played... there are wide spaces between the strings so its easier to play standing and the pickups are sweet... nice sustain. the floyd rose is beautiful and the neck is somewhat this but smooth. if you like distortion guitars or just V's this guitar is perfect for you.

Excellente!

By ThirteenThirtySe7en

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

I recently bought this guitar from a nearby music store, I got the factory blemished version but I could not find the blemish ANYWHERE so I got it for $330 instead of $500 and I must tell everyone this is one fantastic guitar! The Floyd Rose is amazing (I've never owned one before) and the neck is small so it's easy to run up and down quickly, the frets are easy and smooth and the tone is phenominal! Deffinetly worth every penny, know how much you pay for it!

Jackson King V X

By FlyingVMan

from Arlington,TX

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

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.
