    From what I've read/seen, they say the Double Rhoads is bigger in size than the King V. Plus the 22 frets on the D.R. vs. the 24 on the King V.

    Double Rhoads is basically a symmetrical version of the large side of a Rhoads. Take the larger side and mirror it. Boom. Double rhoads.

    King V just takes that shape and shrinks it down.

    Both of Pat's Jackson's are cool looking but I like this one a lot better. Man, if Jackson ever releases a import version, I am so on it. :agreed:

    That black Double Rhoads is amazing - the gloss bevels are so cool. Reverse headstock...those black inlays...top-mounted Floyd...I'd be all over one if they released a USA production model if it wasn't for the scale length.

    Is Mustaine's old Jackson V a double Rhoads?

    I miss BC Rich. I wish the current owners would actually do something with the company rather than rehash the same crap that nobody wants.

    It's a King V:

    Regarding BC Rich, I agree - Brian Martin and Praxis have ruined everything they've touched and those new models are pure garbage.
