The king of high-performance guitars, Jackson?s been designing instruments that exceed the requirements and expectations of modern metal players for more than three decades now. And with the Pro KV, Jackson takes the regal King VTM to even more majestic heights.

A guitar created for giant, crushing tone with head-banging, flamboyant style, the Pro Series King V KV offers premium features including a mahogany body with bevels and an ultra-fast one-piece maple neck with a scarf joint and pair of graphite rods for reinforcement against the assaults of temperature and humidity. The 12"-16" compound radius ebony fingerboard hosts 24 jumbo frets and alumiloid sharkfin inlays and is designed for highly technical lightspeed playing-more curved by the nut for comfortable chording, it flattens out as you move up the speedy neck for increasingly fast playing speed and wide bends without fretting out.

With a commanding sound powered by brawny Seymour Duncan JB/'59 humbucking pickups, this brutally powerful instrument delivers powerful punch while retaining clarity with enhanced note definition, a critical component for modern metal. The recessed Floyd Rose FRT-O2000 double-locking tremolo bridge system will soar and dive without sacrificing your tuning, while providing laser-accurate intonation along the length of the neck.

With one look at this guitar - available in Ferrari Red or Deep Black - the audience knows you?re serious about playing the best- there?s no mistaking the distinctive style of a Jackson. Brooding black hardware and elegant binding on the fingerboard and traditional Jackson 6-in-line matching headstock create a feast for the eyes, leaving absolutely no doubt as to this instrument's lineage. Plug in a Pro KV and stake your claim on the throne of state-of-the-art guitar playing.

J'ai acheté cette guitare et j'ai remarqué que le plastique du pickup était un peu tordu. J en ai pas fait un cas à l achat. Mais avec les mois elle crochissait . Elle a même fendue entre le pickup et le floydrose. Quand je l ai acheté j'ai enlever la plaque en arrière parce que je joue parfois avec les vices, alors je met jamais cette plaque de plastique. Qq mois quand j'ai voulu la remettre pour l amener chez le luthier, la plaque rentrait pu dans son trou. Quand je l ai acheté le manche était un peu tordu. Je croyais que ça s arrangerait avec la trussrod. C était de l ESTI de marde. Même le luthier de long e mcquade la probablement crissé à scrap car il m en on commandé une autre. Même déception quand je l ai vu par expérience. Je n ai pas pris de chance. J ai commandé autre chose. Peut être j'ai pas été chanceux mais prener le temps de bien regarder en détail si vous voulez cette guitare. .. c'est peut-être un de leurs défauts . Chez moi la température est parfaite pour mes guitares et elles ce portes toutes bien..je suis content que long e mcquade sont gentil et compréhensif sinon ça m aurais fait vraiment chier.
