Model: 2848237000 | Artist Signature
In a career spanning four decades, veritable thrash godfather Scott Ian has pummeled audiences with his huge sound and formidable chops. Ian not only co-founded New York “Big Four” thrash institution Anthrax, but also helped created and define U.S. metal in the mid-1980s. Anthrax has sold millions of albums and toured the world dozens of times over.
The USA Signature Scott Ian King V™ KVT features a mahogany body and neck with neck-thru construction, 24.75” scale, 12”-16” compound-radius rosewood fingerboard with 22 jumbo frets and pearl block inlays, ivoroid neck and headstock binding and traditional Jackson six-in-line headstock. This signature King V’s commanding and distinctive voice is driven by a pair of modern Seymour Duncan® pickups—a crisp JB™ SH-4 humbucking bridge pickup and warm ‘59™ SH1N humbucking neck pickup that combine for highly balanced, flexible tone, with plenty of high output for immaculate cleans and raw, raunchy distortion.
Equipped with a TonePros® adjustable TOM-style bridge with Gotoh® stop tailpiece and tuners, the Scott Ian signature model is available in an Ivory finish with a white pickguard, set off by chrome hardware.
