New Jackson X Series guitars are loaded with purebred Jackson DNA-hot humbucking pickups, bound compound-radius fingerboard with the distinctive shark-fin inlays, and stunning finishes. Classic Jackson models imbued with the X factor, with fantastic tone, ultra-fast playability and unbelievable value for 21st century guitarists.
The Jackson King V KVXMG has a basswood body, through-body maple neck and active EMG 85 (neck) and 81 (bridge) humbucking pickups that deliver well-balanced tone with tight bass, glassy mids and crunching highs. Its bound compound-radius rosewood 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. Other features include Floyd Rose Special double-locking two-point tremolo, 24 jumbo frets, and three-way pickup switching. Case sold separately.

Comments about Jackson KVXMG King V X Series Electric Guitar:
This was my first step up from a Sguier Strat so I'm no genius but after months of looking on GC website i narrowed down what I wanted in a guitar to pretty much these features, and then lo and behold this guitar was released. I've had this guitar since March, so I'm well past the honeymoon phase, and on the whole I'm still quite satisfied. It's got killer looks, tone, and playability, and certainly at an unbeatable price. My two complaints are that the springs in the back are very difficult to adjust, and i ended up stripping one of the screws a while back, and so now i have to be very careful about the bridge. Also, I now know the reason this Floyd Rose is called the Floyd Rose special. My Squier stayed in tune better than this thing, and i was really psyched at first because I thought a Floyd Rose would be so much better, even a knock off, so I was quite disappointed. However, this axe is ideal for metal (obviously) with a fast neck and optimal higher fret access. I've even gotten a good jazz tone out of the neck pickup. Don't worry about sitting down, after several months, it's actually less comfortable to play with anything other than a V. On the whole, besides some trouble in the bridge department, this is definitely a guitar worth buying. I would say that If I was to order a custom shop Jackson, I would pretty much order this with an ebony neck, different pickups, and of course, A FLOYD ROSE ORIGINAL!!!
