Long Live The King!

The Jackson King V KVXMG solidbody electric guitar is a rock 'n' roll speed machine. Its basswood body sports a strings-through-body design for maximum tonal tyranny. The King V KVXMG matches its screaming tone with lightning-fast playability, thanks to the through-body maple neck with a compound radius fingerboard. And when you factor in the dual EMG pickups and the Floyd Rose Special tremolo, you'll realize the huge value in the King V. If you want face-melting tone with amazing playability, get the Jackson King V KVXMG!

Jackson King V KVXMG Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • Tone monster
  • Speed demon
  • Energized by EMG
Tone monster

You'll have the tonal power you need with the Jackson King V KVXMG. The combination of the King V KVXMG's basswood body, maple neck, and the high-energy strings-through-body construction, gives you a fully balanced tone you can sculpt any way you like.

Speed demon

What plays faster than the Jackson King V KVXMG's rosewood fretboard with 12"-16" compound radius? Not much! The radiused fretboard makes chords easier to form close to the nut, and is flatter up the neck for faster lead lines. In other words, it's effortless to switch between rhythm and lead playing on the King V KVXMG.

Energized by EMG

The Jackson King V KVXMG comes equipped with a pair of EMG humbucking pickups for high-octane performance. Master volume and tone controls give you tonal control over all three pickup positions, and the King V KVXMG sports a hot enough output to make any amp scream!

Jackson King V KVXMG Solidbody Electric Guitar Features:
  • A powerful combination of a fast-playing design and the full-bodied tone of EMG pickups
  • Excellent sustain from the basswood body and the strings-through construction
  • Compound radius fretboard plays fast and smooth
  • Express yourself with big bends from the Floyd Rose Special tremolo
  • EMG 85 neck humbucker and EMG 81 bridge humbucker for huge tone

Dominate the stage with the Jackson King V KVXMG solidbody electric guitar!

Amazing Guitar

When I unwrapped this guitar I could not help but to play it unplugged. The sound from it alone unplugged is clear with natural sustain and holds tune excellently and then I plugged it in. The sound is great. The pick ups are fantastic. I have a lower level Jackson Kelly which I thought was pretty good. . . Then I played this guitar. The difference is like driving a geo metro and then driving a Rolls Royce Phantom Convertiable. So smooth and looks good to not only impress yourself but pretty much anyone else as well. The tuners and a real Floyd Rose make a huge difference. I used to have problems with my fretting hand hitting the locking nut on other FR equiped guitars. Not the case on this guitar. Ease of moving up and down the neck with chords or scales/soloing. I could go on and on but I'll say this. If you want a super upgrade from an entry level guitar and like this style. Don't hesitate. If you ever wanted a Jackson king V but don't know which one to get and don't want to pay 1-2k. This one is the one. But to me the most important thing is to get the guitar that encourages/inspires you to play or play more. If this looks like that then it's performance will not disappoint.
Music background: 25 years of playing, including studio recording and gigging.

Jackson King V KVXMG

I,ve never played a V guitar beforeBut this guitar plays very,very smoothThe nut width is perfect. It does not neck dive. The sound with the EMGs are fantastic. Sound is a bit bright. But who cares. For this price point. Amazing. If you are planning in purchasing this guitarThen GO FOR IT. Im not even touching my other jackson soloist SL2 ever again. Sweetwater as always has done an amazing job with their service and awsome packging of the instrument Thank you so much

Jackson King V KVXMG

This thing simply rocks. It sounds great, and it plays fast. If you can't afford the USA Jackson's, this will do nicely. I love it!

Great Guitar

What can I say, I got exactly what it said, a solid guitar that has that heavy Jackson tone. Needless to say all that needed done was a string swap and it was ready to go. The one complaint I had about it is that the pickups seen to be a little bit loose, but other than that a flawless purchase, I highly recommend it.

Yeah, This is the ****!

Yeah. This thing is great, fast neck, great tremelo! Etc, etc.Very good guitar, very nice thrash sound.The reason it doesn't get 5,0. But 4,5 stars. Is that the body wood is basswood. And the fretboard is rosewood (not a VERY big deal)^^ though, it could have been nice with an ebony fretboard on this thing.

Since I bought the Jackson King V KVXMG, it has impressed me in every way. I own several guitars, but this one will continue to be the go-to for me whether I’m recording, gigging, or practicing. This guitar is built for metal, but also shines in other genres because of the variety of tones I can achieve and the ease of play anywhere on the neck.
