Hey, just got a KV2, and I love it, it looks so awesome, and plays really well. The annoying part is that there is some fret buzz which is really bad on the 6th string. The neck does not look warped (from what I can tell). The guitar was shipped with the strings in tune, but the locking nut loosened. Any ideas on how to fix this? I love everything else though ! Paid £800 for it, in minty mint condition !

Tighten your locking nut, it could be the reason for your buzzing. I'm not sure but I think you need an allen wrench to tighten locking nuts?...Would appreciate clarification on that from someone with a FR.

If not that, check your neck to see if it's warped, from what I heard KV2 necks warp with the smallest rise in temperature, leading to a lot of 1/4 turns on your truss rod.

Not that much of a hassle, and the guitar is bitchin' anyways. HNGD bro.

There's an old YouTube video of a guy named dmometalguitar. He has a series of videos called Common Guitar Problems, a little time consuming because it's a 3-part vid but considering he's a KV2 owner himself and talks about it a lot you should learn some useful info, especially since he covers the warped neck experiment. I'd do it myself but I've never really had to deal with that issue just yet. I'd link you to the vid but I'm in school on a free period and they've blocked about 90% of the internet, including YouTube.

You can just wait for another UGer to come on, won't take nearly as long.

I would've been at school but the school had an In-service day or something, yeah I've seen his vids before, and they're good, I saw the problems he listed with his King V and mine seems to be alright.
I'll look up that one, cheers.

That's the sexy smexy. I love the yellow pinstripe bevels. If that was my guitar, I would put some yellow pickups and knobs on it. But then again, I'm a 80s hair metal fan.

Seriously, I'm normally a non-violent person, but I would hunt you down to get that guitar.

All very flattering comments! I'm glad I spotted this one as it's more unique than a plain black one, but still as metal!

Thanks for all comments, most especially Vittu's!

And yes, USA Jacksons are great
