Jackson King V KVXT 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 KVXT. The combination of the King V KVXT's basswood body, maple neck, and the high-energy string-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 KVXT'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 KVXT.

Energized by EMG

The Jackson King V KVXT 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 KVXT sports a hot enough output to make any amp scream!

Jackson King V KVXT 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
  • Great intonation and stability from the TonePros adjustable bridge
  • EMGHz H4-AN neck humbucker and EMGHz H4-B bridge humbucker for huge tone

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

Fast metal machine

Jackson has nailed it with this guitar. The EMG pickups are passive, which I love (actives don't give me enough control) and very clear. They're certainly made for metal though - playing clean they sound OK but not great. Then again, if you're not playing metal, why buy a pointy beast like this? They distort evenly and seem to be well balanced in terms of keeping distorted chords crisp and coherent with no added slop - honestly, these are the first EMGs I've ever liked. The guitar itself is well balanced, not neck heavy like a lot of Vs, and was set up perfectly. Now, I'm not a shredder, more of a rhythm guy, but this neck is the fasted I have ever had (and I own I ban exes) and I have no trouble with quick chugging and changes. And as always Sweet water is the best.... Will Newbill set me up and got this to me in record time. All in all, if you're looking for a nice looking but GREAT sounding guitar for classic or modern metal, don't hesitate. This sounds far better than anything at this price point should, and I'd put it up against high end Ibanezes or my PRS any day in terms of playability. Good stuff, Jackson!
