Overview

The Dean Kerry King V Signature guitar places four decades of thrash metal legacy into your hands. This electric guitar has the sizzling attitude, palpable energy and premium specs needed to conquer the brutal riffs the Slayer founding guitarist is known for. Made for blistering speed and hardcore precision, the Kerry King Dean features a unique body design finished in the blackest black. A killer horned headstock mirrors the mahogany body. Lurking beneath the sleek maple top are an EMG 85 pickup and a PA2 preamp-powered 81, ready to attack with hellacious tone from clean to mean. With a Kahler Hybrid Tremolo system included for screaming dives and face-melting harmonics, Guitar Center recommends the Kerry King Signature Dean to any Slayer fan looking to nail King’s sound.

Dean Kerry King V Main Features

  • Unique V body shape
  • EMG 85 and 81 with PA2 Preamp Booster
  • Kahler Hybrid Tremolo
  • Ebony fingerboard with red crossed nail inlays
  • Maple neck with Kerry King Special C profile

Black Satin V With Demonic Details

Nothing says “forged in metal” like a V guitar shape. The Kerry King Dean takes it a step further with horned tips on the body and headstock. Like the mahogany body and maple top, the ebony fingerboard is all black and features red crossed nail inlays.

Active EMG Pickups

An EMG 85 neck pickup and EMG 81 pickup in the bridge give the Kerry King V the versatility to traverse the complete sonic hellscape, from clean highs to crunchy distortion. The PA2 Preamp Booster on the 85 delivers an extra push of volume for a blistering solo or to crank an amp into overdrive.

Expressive Tremolo System

There can’t be darkness without light, and the Kahler Hybrid Tremolo system shines with delicate vibrato and emotive bends. Built to withstand aggressive whammy attacks and staccato runs like in King’s playing style, this Kahler trem adds the perfect amount of Slayer flavor.

Comfortable for Fast Fingers

The 3-piece maple set-through neck features a Kerry King Special C shape designed for playability, accuracy and performance. The highest frets are readily accessible, making it easy to show off your solo skills with speed and finesse.

The Dean Kerry King V delivers affordable brutality for Kerry King fans, from those who grew up listening to Slayer to new fans just getting into old-school thrash. Additional high-performance features include a Floyd Rose R2 nut and Grover tuners with black hardware.
