This is the coolest Jackson King V there is

image

This guitar has some crazy good looks to it - and it's a Jackson.

To be honest, I've never liked the King V from Jackson. I always liked the Rhoads V with the shorter bottom fin (which can be had for a very nice price), but never the King - until now.

Above is the X Series Signature Scott Ian King V by Jackson. This King V is the first that actually has a great look to it. It's a combination of vintage Flying V and modern Jackson goodness that works oh-so nicely.

24.75" scale? Yes. 12"-to-16" compound radius? Yes. Set neck construction? Yes. Neck and headstock binding? Yes. Awesome pearloid block inlays? Yes. Dopey vibrato system? No, thank God. It's a good ol' hardtail top-loader V, the way it was meant to be.

Although this is called a King V, I call it a Super Flying V. It's got the right hardware, to be sure, but the styling touches are amazing.

When I call this the coolest King V there is, I'm not joking. I'd be proud to play this one on stage. Killer guitar.
