    scored this amazing jackson for a ridiculous deal and thought I should probably share it with everyone here since I really don't post enough anymore. It's essentially a nearly unplayed '98 made in japan Jackson KVX10 with a flamed maple cherry burst top; literally something I've never seen on a king v ever, for $225. I think I did a good job this time around and I now have immense GAS for more king Vs, lol.

    I didn't even get pictures of it before putting in new pickups, so you guys will have to put up with pictures of it with a set of limited edition Fishman Fluence Stephen Carpenter 6 string pickups I've been holding onto for quite a while, just waiting to plop them into whatever 6 string I got next that I knew I'd be keeping.

    Enjoy the two pictures, I'll probably catch more at rehearsal tonight and drop them in here aswell!

    definitely not lol, I think the post was more aimed at the finish. cherry burst flamed maple top king v's just look.. killer. I'm surprised there's not more of them

    Uh, duh? :rofl: Dave's burst KV1 is one of my favorites he owns. I just thought the fact that OP's looked like it was awesome AF.

    Plus OP said he's never seen a sunburst V, so I just hooked him up. :lol:

    Sunburst King Vs are ace! How is that Steff Fluence 6 working out for you? Kinda envious that you scored one of em sets.

    I absolutely love them. I've had a set of the 8 string ones and I can confidently say that the 6 string set sounds pretty much identical to the 8 string set and they are absolutely killer for lower tunings. really good for drop B which is the tuning I have it in right now for the band. I REALLY hope they decide to do another run of the 6 string sets, I'd love to pick up a few more but I doubt they will as it seems like it was a super limited thing. one can still hope though!

    it sounds about as good as it plays, which is to say very well for sure! definitely sounds bigger than it is size-wise if that makes sense and the fishman SC 6 set really does sound almost exactly like the 8 string set which surprised me in a very good way.

    thanks, the wall art in this room is always a great conversation starter. it literally spands all four walls of the room and covers more series than I can count on both hands about :lol:
