Jackson Scott Ian King V: Mahogany and continuous neck

With the Jackson King V, Scott Ian chose a classic metal guitar as the basis for his signature model. The combination of a full-length maple neck and mahogany body wings promises a warm, fast attack tone that provides the perfect foundation for fat metal riffs. To ensure that these come out of your hand like clockwork, the neck offers not only the fast “Speed Neck” profile, but also a wide Laurel fingerboard with compound radius. For best orientation between the 22 jumbo frets, large block inlays are also provided.

Duncan Designed Humbucker for juicy thrash riffs

The electrical sound transformation of the Jackson X Series Scott Ian Signature is provided by two Duncan Designed HB-103 humbuckers in the neck and bridge position. As close relatives of the Seymour Duncan distortion pickups, the two high output units turn out to be the perfect foundation for fat riffs and solos. For example, the Duncan Designed HB-103B at the bridge on the amp delivers a particularly hot sound that cuts through the band mix with a sharp mid-focus and burning highs, with every note being represented with precise contours. At the neck, on the other hand, the HB-103N convinces with a warm sound that makes every note sing with endless sustain. But even in clean amp settings both pickups know how to please with harmonic reproduction and excellent string separation.

Indestructible Jackson Hardware

High-quality hardware that can handle the toughest metal shows with indestructible functionality completes the equipment of the Jackson Scott Ian Signature King V. Accordingly, the classic combination of Tune-O-Matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece is used on the body, which ensures perfect intonation and string action even with abysmal down tunings. From the bridge, the strings with 24.75″ scale length (628 mm) are guided towards the headstock, on which Jackson Die-Cast tuners ensure precise and stable tuning.
