1986 Jackson King V Custom


A beautiful example of a San Dimas era King V. I wanted a guitar that would be as close as possible to the Megadeth logo King V but without the same price tag so I could use it at rehearsals and gigs. This is pretty much as close as you can get. Neck profile is very close, the serial is close (Megadeth logo KV is J2713), the poplar body sounds the same. Biggest difference is the jumbo fret size. The two missing frets don't change the feel of the guitar at all cause on the Mustaine guitar the fretboard is extended. I put a fixed Kahler on her so that's also taken care of.

Huge thanks to Marco!
