Jackson: King V KVXMG

Price paid: $ 650

Purchased from: Amazon

Sound — 10
The EMG 85 and 81 its really Cool, strong, fast and outstanding, all you need to play Death Metal, stunning guitar. About the floyd rose tremolo and is very good, the tuning stays for a long time, and does a good vibrato lever, better, impossible.

Overall Impression — 10
The floyd rose is good, the pickup, everything is at the forefront, I feel very fortunate to have this guitar.

Reliability & Durability — 9
The intense black of the guitar is perfect, and dark tone with the pickup, the floyd rose is a really good black tone, making it perfect with the black guitar.

Action, Fit & Finish — 10
The new X Series from Jackson revolutionizes the company, I not tried the other X series guitars, but this King V KVXMG is from another world, the finish, the sound is excellent.

    Short, unimformative, rushed by excited new guitar owner...CRAP review. Go home and try again
    Planning on getting this guitar, my first serious one, after playing 1 and a half year on a guitar comparable to a duplo one, is it worth the money?
    kv5fr is probably better than the kvxmg. But the kvxmg should be better than the kvx10!
    Yeah, it's worth it.. Try to watch the video on youtube by a guy called Nick Perez.. He compares a jackson from the x series with a jackson usa warrior!
