Jackson king v 2

This is a Jackson USA Select Series KV2 King V Gun Metal Grey Guitar.  It is part of the Jackson USA Select Series.  The King V features include an Unmistakable look, unbelievable sound. The Jackson King V was first made for Robin Crosby of Ratt.
Robin’s nick name was King hence the name of the Jackson King V.  Ever since the Jackson KV2 has become a staple in the metal world with its signature look.  The KV2 has a the more slender speed neck rather than the standard Jackson Soloist neck.  It is built for blistering fast speed.  Jackson Guitars have always been known for their fast necks and the King V is no different.  That is due to the compound radius which makes the fretboard more rounded and concave on the lower frets while it slowly tapers out to be more flat at the higher frets.  This Jackson KV2 King V is of course made in the USA and is a killer Flying V Guitar.  The Jackson KV2 is also very comfortable to play because unlike a Strat Style body there is no guitar horn to get in the way on the higher frets.  You will be burning up and down the King V fretboard.  The Jackson KV2 also features an Alder body, quartersawn eastern hard rock maple neck (through body), compound radius ebony fingerboard, Seymour Duncan® humbucking pickups, Floyd Rose® Original tremolo and black hardware.
