The Additional Add-Ons to Jackson’s Pro Series

The previous article on Jackson’s updated Pro Series covered their new Super Strat models, the new Dinky and Soloist models, but they didn’t just go and draw the line there. Here we’re covering the four remaining models. Introducing the KVMG and KVMGQ King V’s, and the RRMG and RRTMG Randy Rhoads… Rhoads? Rhoadses? I forget which. Doesn’t matter. Onward to the guitars.

KVMG Pro King V

The KVMG King V, a guitar that looks as good to play as it does to use as a medieval weapon, is fashioned out of alder with a maple veneer top. It’s fixed with a 24-fret maple neck and an ebony fretboard with aluminoid shark fin inlays. For the better interest of hearing the guitar the KVMG uses a set of EMG active humbuckers with an 81 in the bridge position and an 85 in the neck position. The guitar also uses Jackson’s die-cast tuners and a Floyd Rose FRT-O2000 double-locking tremolo. The KVMG is available in black and show white with black bevels.

KVMGQ Pro King V

The KVMGQ King V revels in its use of alder for the body properly decorated with a quilted maple veneer top. The neck is maple with a 24-fret ebony fretboard accessorized with aluminoid shark fin inlays. The KVMGQ makes use of the same EMG 81 (bridge) and 85 (neck) active humbuckers as seen in the KVMG as well as the die-cast Jackson tuners and the Floyd Rose FRT-O2000 tremolo. This model is available in transparent black and the eye catching amber sunburst.

RRMG Pro Randy Rhoads

The RRMG Randy Rhoads, which appears to be as good as a guitar as it does a weapon or a bottle opener, is made out of alder with a quilted maple veneer finished with either a satin black or a matte grey with matte black bevel finish. The maple neck reaches up to 22 frets with an ebony fretboard displaying aluminoid shark fin inlays. The RRMG uses two EMG active humbuckers; it makes use of the 81 in the bridge position and the 85 in the neck position. This model also uses Jackson’s own die-cast tuners and the Floyd Rose FRT-O2000 tremolo.

RRTMG Pro Randy Rhoads

And now we conclude this topic with the RRTMG Randy Rhoads. The alder body is complimented by the quilted maple veneer top with a 22-fret maple neck with an ebony fretboard with aluminoid shark fin inlays. The RRTMG uses the same pickup trends established by both King V models and the RRMG; it uses an EMG 81 in the bridge position and an 85 in the neck position. In the world of hardware Jackson’s die-cast tuners make their return, but the Floyd Rose is substituted with a TonePros Tune-O-Matic T3BT-B fixed bridge. This model comes in two finishes, black and silverburst.
