Jackson KVMG Pro Series King V - Metallic Black
Special Order

Command the Stage with the Jackson King V!

The Jackson Pro King V KV solidbody electric guitar is primed for modern hard rock and metal! As soon as you pick up a KVMG Pro Series King V, you know you're ready to rock. This guitar gives you a fast-playing 3-piece maple neck, a Floyd Rose trem, and beefy tones (thanks to two Seymour Duncan SH6 Distortion humbucking pickups). The mahogany body offers up thick, crunchy sound with plenty of bite, and the ebony fingerboard is adorned with shark fin inlays. Create your own tonal fireworks with the Jackson Pro King V KV!

Jackson Pro King V KV Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • Neck-through-body design for monumental sustain
  • Optimized fretboard provides comfort and serious speed
  • Wide range of tones from a pair of Seymour Duncan pickups
Neck-through-body design for monumental sustain

The Jackson Pro King V KV owes its great tone and sustain in part to something you won't even notice at first glance: a neck-through-body design. The 3-piece through-body maple neck doesn't just join the body; it's actually part of the body! This configuration contributes to sustain in a big way, since the entire guitar is structurally integrated.

Optimized fretboard provides comfort and serious speed

What plays faster than the Jackson Pro King V KV's ebony fretboard with 12"-16" compound radius? Not much! The radiused fretboard makes it easier to form chords close to the nut and is flatter up the neck for faster lead lines. Down low, your fretting hand will appreciate the 12" radius that keeps things nice and comfortable for natural, relaxed chord work. Up top, a 16" radius lays it all out flat for effortless, low-action, high-speed runs with monumental string bends without fretting out. In other words, it's effortless to switch between rhythm and lead playing on the Pro King V KV. It's this kind of playability that has made the compound-radius fretboard a favorite at Sweetwater.

Ferocious tones from a pair of Seymour Duncan pickups

The Jackson Pro King V KV comes equipped with a pair of direct-mount Seymour Duncan SH6 Distortion pickups for high-octane performance. Why direct-mount pickups? The guitar experts at Sweetwater tell us that the thinking behind direct mounting is that the additional contact with the body results in increased tonal transfer. Master volume and tone controls give you tonal control over all three pickup positions, and the Jackson Pro King V KV sports a hot enough output to make any amp scream!

Jackson Pro King V KV Solidbody Electric Guitar Features:
  • A powerful combination of a fast-playing design and the full-bodied tone of Seymour Duncan pickups
  • Excellent sustain from a mahogany body, a maple neck, an ebony fretboard, and a neck-through-body design
  • Compound-radius fretboard plays fast and smooth
  • Seymour Duncan SH6 Distortion humbuckers for huge tone
  • Floyd Rose FRT-O2000 double-locking tremolo for twisting, bending, and dive-bombing

Great Guitar

I was very impressed with the quality of this Jackson Pro Series King V. It plays and sounds amazing. It has a super-fast neck. I love the Metallic Black finish because it has glittery flakes in the finish which looks really nice when in the light. Thank you, Sweetwater! You are the best and you always make sure that I am 100% happy every time I purchase a new instrument or gear from you and I really appreciate that.

Great guitar

I purchased this back in October and I couldn't be happier. A great sounding guitar with amazing sustain. The neck was everything I hoped it would be and the trembelo is awesome. I am in love with the tone of the Seymour Duncan humbuckers.
