ANTHRAX's SCOTT IAN Shows Off New Finish To X Series Signature King V KVXT Guitar (Video)

In the video below, ANTHRAX guitarist Scott Ian gives the Jackson team a quick look at his latest X Series Signature Scott Ian King V KVXT model, available in a slick new Candy Apple Red finish.

"It's finally available to all of you out there and I'm very, very happy about that," says Ian, who has often played both a custom and import version of the same colored guitar onstage. "Most importantly, it sounds correct and that's really all I care about. Looking good is one thing, but if it sounded like crap, then it wouldn't matter. But this thing's got it all. It looks great and it sounds great."

Watch as Ian gives a rapid-fire rundown of some of its key specs, and to get his gear, head here.

A co-founder of New York "Big Four" thrash metal institution ANTHRAX, Ian has pummeled audiences with his huge sound and formidable chops for close to four decades.

Experience the veritable thrash godfather's signature tone with the X Series Scott Ian King V KVXT, offering a 24.75" scale length, mahogany body, through-body maple neck with graphite reinforcement and scarf joint. The 12"-16" compound radius laurel or rosewood fingerboard features 22 jumbo frets and pearloid block inlays. Its versatile voice is powered by a pair of Duncan Designed humbucking pickups — a biting HB-103B humbucking bridge pickup is matched to a powerful HB-103N humbucking neck pickup for articulate tone. This signature axe also features a Jackson compensated and adjustable TOM-style bridge with anchored tailpiece, Jackson die-cast tuners and pointed 6-in-line-headstock.

The KVXT is available in Candy Apple Red with a white pickguard, Gloss Black with a mirror pickguard or Ivory with a white pickguard — all accentuated with chrome hardware, black dome-style single volume and tone controls and a black three-way toggle switch.
